Hawaii 2009

How can life get any better than this..... I received an all expense paid vacation to Hawaii & enjoyed my grandsons and their mommy & daddy for a week. Michael had to report to Honolulu for work and Tracy, the boys and myself tagged along. We had a wonderful time! We stayed at the Hilton and was in the rainbow towers , it was awesome and we had a lovely patio view. The boys enjoyed watching the koi, ducks, goose, pink flamingos, pigeons and the penguins.

Listening to the man talk about the penguins and how to feed them. They even petted them.

While Tracy & Michael went out on their special date nites (to nice restaurants) I had the fun of watching Mikie & Zachary. The boys and I had picnics in the hotel room or went by stroller to some of the other fine dining places in Oahu. (Cheeseburger in Paradise & McDonalds.) McD's was a backup because the nice aquarium restaurant we walked to needed reservations to sit next to the glass & see the fish at tableside. Since we didn't know this we decided to go elsewhere and McD's was the first stop in sight. I think this was a blessing in disquise...because how was I suppose to go through a wonderful buffet with two small children and get 3 plates of food?!?! I sure don't know how all you mommies multi task all the time. I ADMIRE YOU!!!!
At the zoo it was fun to crawl thru the tunnel in the fish tank and look out the different windows. You could even stand up in the middle of the tank and be surronded by all the fish.

We had a great time at the pools & beaches. Zachary didn't really care for the sand between his toes.

There is so much more to write about but I am using my lunch hour at work for the internet and I still have not got the hang of publishing these blogs yet. You can tell...some of the pics are little and I don't know why my text is underlined. I know Tracy will describe more in detail so you'll have to read her blog.

I just want to thank Tracy & Michael from the bottom of my heart for giving me this wonderful memory. Thank you Mikie & Zachary for being such good boys and letting Grandma Boagie have a fun time with you! Can't wait till we go to California in a couple weeks.
