Zoo Crew

It’s midwinter break at our preschool so Max met up with some of his buddies at the zoo.

One of many attempts for a group shot. Herding cats, I tell ya'!


Roaring like a lion (or dinosaur) is a favorite of mine, so of course we must stop for a pic.


Next stop was the elephants, and another statue.


Crushing hard for the older sister of one of my classmates.

Playdate Pals

An impromptu playdate with some children from Max’s class.

Mom says it's never too early for men to learn their way around the kitchen.


I already know the most important skill in the kitchen.

Hangin’ with my cousins

A visit to a nearby park and some play time with my cousins.

Sydney and I racing around the track. She's crazy on wheels.


The helmet stays put, on and off the bike.


Dad and Uncle Paul even got in on the fun.


Snack break (still with the helmet).

Valentine’s Day outing

Brunch with the family then a ferry trip over to Bainbridge Island.

Rope climbing 101


Still not quite comfortable with tunnels ...


King of the ... starfish?


Don't think I'd miss the bus is the gigantic children's mural.


A little music for my adoring fans


I am boy, see me dig.


I mean business

Lunch date at the aquarium

Mom and I met dad at the aquarium for a lunch date. I got to check out some of the attractions while we waited for him to show.

I had to humor mom with the jellyfish cutout

Being a tourist

There are so many things to do on this small island. We saw some of Waimeya Canyon. I slept of course. Then we were off to a laua where we saw all kinds of plants and some really cool birds.

Being packed around is the only way to see a canyon.

All kinds of things enjoy the beach. This monk seal was sun bathing while we enjoyed the day.

Fish and fun


Our resort had an awesome Koi pond where we could help feed the fish every morning.
