Aloha Friday - Settling In

We have finally moved into our new home.  We finally have internet.  We finally are starting to get settled.  There are still boxes to unpack, furniture to buy, and pictures to hang.  But...we are in our home and it feels awesome.

Here is a photo of Charlotte sitting at the front door on moving day.  We literally rolled her out of bed at 6 and drove straight to the leasing office to pick up the house keys.  Thankfully she was almost all smiles that day despite the chaos.

Here is what we saw outside of our front door that morning.  Our very first double rainbow in Hawaii.  I saw a second one later that night on my way to Target.  So cool.

Here is Charlotte sipping some strawberry tea.  The tea set is one I brought back with me from Vietnam back in college.  I remember painstakingly packing that set and making sure it didn't get broken.  Now, it's a toddler tea set.  Go figure.  :)

Here is Charlotte drawing on the lanai with her birthday sidewalk chalk.

Benjamin is around too.  He's usually hanging out in the baby carrier though (which makes photographs a bit more difficult).  He turned four months old almost two weeks ago.  It amazes me how much quicker time seems to fly by with two kids.  I wish it would slow down just a bit sometimes.  And this kid is a chunkster.  At his four month check up, he weighed in at over 12.5 pounds!

We visited Daddy one afternoon while he was on duty.  Charlotte said that she would bring a pink screwdriver to help him fix the ship.

And finally, here is Charlotte with a pink cake we made after school.  We sang happy birthday to the entire family and blew out imaginary candles.  And as Charlotte would say, "That's pink.  That's my favorite."  Silly girl.

As always, mahalo for stopping by!!!!
