that's right folks, this morning we woke up to this!!!
grandma C decided to take us to a warmer climate for the week.
we feel OH so spoiled.
the pork loin did "ok" on the plane.
although he didn't sleep a wink.
i just kept asking for them to "fill-er up!" with the guava.
by the time we arrived, i was passion fruit sauced.
the warm, thick humid air was full of flowers that hit us when we stepped off the plane.
it was glorious.
whenever i come here i make a pledge to never leave.
the aloha spirit is relaxing our bones.
i can't wait for a day at the beach.
too bad dad couldn't be with us:-(
plans for today:
these are the two views from our room.

april fools!!!
this is actually what we woke up to this morning.
and no foolin', i was excited!
i love the snow.
it makes me run to the door for a peak of the fluffy white topping.
how is that not beautiful?
it's gorgeous.
and we will bask in it today.
fully clothed of course.
good news?
we won't have to wear sunscreen!
i don't mind the smell too much, but i'm not a fan of the sticky, oiled feeling it leaves (even if i use the non oily version).
and for realz, grandma C really is in aloha land.
pork loin's new trick below:
happy snow day!
goddesses, you'll have to wait another day for april/may's book club selection.
loves to you and yours,

Ah shucks, I was really hoping you were in Hawaii. Good joke. You almost got me.

Good job, little Pork Loin. Next, learn to find your nostril! Mommies love when little fingers head straight up the nose.

You are such a brat! I am reading this and I could actually smell Hawaii, and I was getting sad. But then I thought to myself, "Self, if Em was going to Hawaii...wouldn't she have said something about it on FB???" Happy April Fools Day!

You are a funny girl!

Awww, I was so happy for you, being in Hawaii and all.

Give the loin my compliments on his new trick.
