This picture was taken during our honeymoon in Hawaii. During our seven day stay, we island hopped between Oahu and Kauai, enjoying all the beauty and hospitality that is Hawaii. We had plans to make it back during the summer of 2008 to celebrate our fifth wedding anniversary, but found ourselves smack dab in the middle of a home renovation instead. Even though the idea of laying on the beach was far more tempting than the manual labor we were enduring, there was no way out of it! Fast forward one year to the summer of 2009, the reno was complete, but guess what?! I was 8 1/2 months pregnant! So a trip, much less a trip nearly 6,000 miles away, was simply not an option. And now with a new baby, I'm thinking we'll be enjoying a few more staycations than vacations in our near future. When will we finally get back to Hawaii to enjoy a little fun in the sun? Your guess is as good as mine! In the mean time you can find us lounging poolside at Casa de Yost, a family-style all inclusive resort, also known as my parents' house.
