But most of the time Lollie liked laying on the lounge chair in the shade, making sure she didn't get a sunburn, and resting up for the big travels that were ahead of her.
We will update on that later! Happy travels!

Meet Lihi. She came in a little purple purse with pearl handles and the word "Royalty" embroidered on the little bag.
Here is Lihi at the airport waiting for our flight. We flew on Hawaiian Airlines, the best way to fly to Hawaii.
Lihi had the chance to visit everyone in Hawaii.
But she especially loved going to the beach. We spent the day with family at the local beach. We BBQ'd chicken, steak, sausage. The boys went fishing, crabbing, or diving. It was a fun day.
This was one of the many days spent at the beach. Tay had a blast with all of her cousins.
Hope everyone is having as much fun as we did.
And here are Pinta the Koala and Birra posing in front of the lookout over the Silvan Dam.
Its a bit cold here at the moment, and we've all had bronchitis and the flu, so we haven't been out and about too much.

After spending the weekend with Grandma visiting, we had a little sewing time with mom, Jeremiah and Autumn. Eduardo has a playmate, Pinkie, isn't she cute?! Spending time crafting together is one of our summer highlights this year. Everyone has made something, and with it super hot in the afternoons and us laying low til our next trip...it's perfect fun!

Kitty came with us on our first adventure of the summer...out to see the Tony Stewart #20 Home Depot Car! Kitty was enthralled with it! Kitty decided it wanted to go home with one of my co-workers for a few more adventures and get a name...and be back in time to go with us camping in the Adirondack Mountains!
Hope everyone is travelling or visiting safely and staying cool in the heat!

Well, I must first say that I am glad we are sitting out this round and just helping organize because we have fallen completely in love with our buddy and would not be able to send her away! Baby (no name yet) was born yesterday at 2.42 pm Pacific time. She is 20 inches long and 8 lbs. 2 oz. Her head is 14 inches around. We are all doing great and totally in love. Hope your swaps are going well. Meg.

A big blue bunny has been spotted, lazily enjoying the clouds float by. While everyone else was floating down a river in the heat, she was just enjoying the "lovely air" she told me. She must be preparing for her journey in a box soon.
Get plenty of fresh air now, because travels to a new place are a-coming!
My husband actually took this picture--it is kind of fun to see him getting involved in the swap too.

With summer comes vacations, camping trips, softball games, and this year pool parties. We have camping trips in the making but no definite plans, we're in the middle of the softball season, and I'm hoping to plan a pool party for Tay and her little friends. We are, however, leaving in two weeks on vacation back to our little home in the beautiful state of Hawaii.
We're all excited, especially Tay. She will be bringing her travel buddy with her. But we do have a dilemma. Tay can't decide which buddy to take with her. I thought we already had her travel buddy picked out. It was no doubt going to be "Ballerina" but a recent trip to Build A Bear has made it complicated. She is now the proud owner of "Serafina". As you can see, I included a picture of them. I didn't want to ruin the surprise for our swap partner so I just took a picture of their footsies.
It's a hard decision because both buddies are an important part of Tay's life. I already told Tay that only one friend can come with us to Hawaii but I have a funny feeling that she'll try to sneak one in her bag. Oh well...
How's everyone coming along with their swaps?

Thank you to everyone who shared their travel tips. We got some great ideas and it was fun reading all of your posts. We will do another contest for July--look for the rules after the holiday weekend. Happy 4th of July!
P.S. We did not judge the entries, instead we drew a name randomly.
