Mauna Kea, Hawaii with my SISTER!!!

Last week I got the amazing opportunity to join my sister Melissa as her guest at her presidents club for her company.  It was unfortunate her husband could not go but I'm so lucky she chose me for her date.  We had not seen each other for 18 months so it was a major treat for both of us. We met in San Fran and landed in Kona with smiles.  Most people asked if we were sisters, a few asked if we were twins.

With the time change we were up and out the door every morning at 6am.   This is our sunrise balcony pic from day 1.

Breakfast overlooking the ocean. 

It was so unbelievably beautiful, my pictures do not do any of it justice. 

Wednesday was a welcome dinner for the company, they do everything top notch.

Day 2 we all went on catamarans snorkeling and then to a beach party. 

We did a glass bottom boat with some others and called ourselves the geek squad, we asked so many questions. 

My beautiful sis.

Yep, geeks. On Friday we did a Zodiac tour and it was amazing. We went 6 miles out and saw sharks, dolphins, fish and a pod of pilot whales.  I was not too keen on getting in the water but I did and it was so cool....I was the first one back in the boat though. 

Not too bad for a Thursday.

Friday night they had a great dinner again and Hawaiian games.  I nailed the spear throw. 

We did a wonderful hike on Saturday morning.

Saturday for lunch we went up to the golf course and got our men some cool shirts and had a great seafood lunch and some fab wine.

I could not stop taking pics of the view, no matter where I was.

Saturday night was the gala dinner.  They did such a fab job, so pretty and such a fun night. 

Our last sunrise.

I'm a dork. 

My last balcony pic.  We spent lots of time chilling out chatting and reading here. 

One of my fave sunset pics. 

The pilot wales.  It was just so amazing, I wish my pictures could do it justice.  The time spent with my sister was just the BEST and everything else just icing on the cake. We laughed so hard we cried so many times.  I love her so much and the opportunity she gave me to spend the time with her. I'm a lucky girl. Love you Miss! xxoo

Carlsbad, Easter and a pretty new kitchen!

I finally got another pic of Ty at spring training.

Over spring break Eric and Kerri took the boys down to Oceanside and Carlsbad for a night.  

They visited the tide pools and beach the next day.  A perfect beach day. 

A preview of my trip to Hawaii with my sister next week. Miss got a package in the mail with our schedule and custom luggage tags....3 days and counting!

On Easter we had our annual party, it was warm enough for lots of swimming.

They are never too old for an egg hunt!

We had our kitchen counters and backsplash done the week before Easter. Eric picked out everything and it looks amazing!! These two pics are the befores. 

 And the after pics, I LOVE walking into my kitchen!!!

I submitted a pic to CNN for island pics and last week I clicked on the same title under their travel section and my photo was #14 of 30!! 
Mason said-You better Belize it!

Pebble Beach, Eric's bucket list.

Last weekend Eric had the opportunity of a lifetime, or as he put it, Bucket list.  He was flown in a private jet up to Monterey for 3 days of golf. 

The pictures speak for themselves. He played Monterey Peninsula Club Dunes and Shores courses Saturday and Sunday and then Pebble Beach on Monday.

EQ and Eric.
