Flashback Friday

June 2003

Photobucket
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.

Happy Friday!

Someday you'll be able to go back. We had recieved a cruise trip as a wedding gift, only it was a year away still so we had a year to be excited about it. Then we got pregnant, but my mom insisted we go anyways. Our son was just a few months old when we left him with my parents to go on our cruise. I missed him so much but it was nice to take a vacation. Last one for awhile.
