Muddy Waters and The Latest in Hat Wear

 Yesterday we went on an adventure!
Nothing like feeding hungry koi fish...they made a kinda yucky sound when they'd "chomp" at the water! ha ha ha
On our "hike" to see some rained, and we all got a bit wet...
And Alani is wearing the lastest in rainforest fashion- the LEAF BONNEY BONNET!
Alani got a special rainhat....
which was made from some leaves we found and another leaf tied around it (she began collecting all the ones she found on the ground- we could have made hats for everyone, almost! ha ha ha)
 Blakey rinsing his muddy feet...
Jordan, our cousin and one of Jordan's best friends, Marcus, Alani, and Blake - and as you can see, this was before Alani got her hat. ha ha ha

We chewed on some sugar cane, tried some lilikoi, but no one was a fan of the jelly-like, seed stuff inside. And ate some coconut candy.

we felt like we were in a movie...a fun, jungley-adventure movie!

and I seemed to be the only one that the mosquitos liked...ha ha ha

shave ice and hugs, kandee

Strollin' in Maui with Forrest Gump

Ellie enjoying our walk around Whaler's village....
 Ellie looks like such a big girl, leanin' on her stroller... (this is a loaner jogging stroller, we like it, but hard to steer with a swivel-wheel in front- we do lots of "wheelie-turns)

 Blake's smiley face artwork....
Outside the Bubba Gump restaurant you can try on Forrest's shoes and sit next to his box of chocolates.
Blakey "wearing" Forrest's runnin' shoes...

Peek into  my otha' blog-, right here-here.
wishing for a box full if chocolates (or maybe just chocolate covered macadamia nuts), kandee

Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny...

Bloom Zen stroller sighting

Gwen Stefani is the first celebrity parent we have seen to drive the very awesome Bloom Zen stroller. Bloom has a picture on their twitter of her and sons Kingston and Zuma out with the stroller.

We made it- and a long-ish flight with kids...

We made it! This was Blakey  in the airport as we waited for our bag to show up.
After a long day of travelling, lots of waiting in the plane- one flight we actually spent more time waiting in line to take off than we did in the air! ha ha ha
 Here was a picture of me and Ellie and her baby doll,  on the plane, from Alani's angle...
Me, Blakey, Ellie and Alani had one row of seats....which was located right next to the bathroom doors and against the back we got the pleasure of seeing all the people line up next to our seats, smell, the "aroma" of the bathroom, which did NOT smell like the heavenly smell of our lei's...ha ha ha And the opening and shutting of the "lavatory" doors, which ultimately woke Ellie up from her nap. haha ha ha ha
 Thankful that the San Francisco aiport has these play areas for kids...Ellie and Blakey and Alani got to get some energy out before we boarded our plane for Hawaii- (where we spent almost an hour just waiting to take off, again! IT seems San Francisco has quite a bit of traffic! ha ha ha)
 Alani running around....
Blakey checking stuff out.....

Not shown...Jordan and his friend, who happens to be our cousin, too...who is with us too.

Travel tip: for anyone travelling with a "lap baby"...any baby under 2, that sits on your lap for the flight- if you bring a little flat-ish, pillow, you can lay it across your lap for them to sleep on way more comfortably!

Anyone traveling with a baby knows, flying is not relaxing, like where you just get to sit back and read or watch a movie- you are bouncing, making faces, entertaining like crazy because you can't really get out of your seat and do anything! ha ha ha I was almost more excited to get off the plane than the kids! They kids did great, no crying from baby or anything...Jordan and Marcus (his cousin, who didn't get to sit together, or together with us- were super excited to get off too!

Off to go feed everyone breakfast- and yes, after we landed we stopped at Walmart for food and some supplies...ha ha ha They sell really cool Hawaiian stuff at their Wal-Mart!

Hugs from Hawaii (I can't believe I get to type that!), your kandee

Jessica Alba pushes a Phil & Ted

Jessica Alba was spotted with her daughters in a NYC park this past week and speaking of double strollers, check out her children's new ride. That's the new Phil & Ted Dot Stroller with a doubles kit.

I'm packin'!

No, I'm not packin' heat, like they do in cop shows....I'm packin' suitcases!

I am actually taking a break from packing to type this blog post- yay for breaks, because I was kinda' just staring at stuff and not getting much done...ha ha ha ha

As you will see above, my trusty Ergo baby carrier, a mini zebra print carryon and not to let zebra bag be the only shining star of animal print-ness....we have trusty, Vans Leopard Print backpack- which still need to be filled with more stuff.

Packing for my 3 little ones and thankfully Jordan packes his own suitcase- yay! So, I only have to pack for 4 people (me included), instead of 5.

We are going to escape our daily lives, and let some new fun memories be created, because we've dealt with an overwhelming amount of sadness recently, with the death of my dad...(oh, that is still so hard to type or say the word, "death").....ok, must think of happy things to end this post....

I have much more packing to do, and the last load of laundry just buzzed in the dryer (I don't know how the buzzer keeps getting turned on- I can't stand the sound of dryer buzzes!)

off to go fold laundry, your kandee

My crazy personal trainer....

Some people have trainers to help get them into shape....
My trainer is harsh, doesn't let me rest, and at his guidance I'll be in shape in no time.
He is on the small side, he fits in my jogging stroller.
His favorite things are Hot Wheels.
He is only 4, and his favorite thing to yell to me when we're on a run, when I stop for a break to walk is:
"What'd you stop for?!?"
ha ha ha ha ha

In his down time he likes to fly helicopters (as seen below) and goes by the name Blake.
I DO have to hand him his water bottle quite often and hand him snacks while I workout, but he doesn't charge me a thing... it is well worth it!

Off to go "train" whith my little trainer....he also really like any workout that he can jump around with me too, although he was kinda dangerous to stand near when I did Turbo Jam... ha ha ha

jumping jacks, kandee

Oh MY Flower Kids and Gnomes....

 I've got 5 words for you:
Costumes should be worn everyday.
How much do you love these "garden kids"?!?
Ok, I have to play favorites here, because, "The Rose Costume" above is adorable times 10.
 These kids flower costumes are amazing- the Flower Pot- I mean, how awesome are these!?!

 and introducing Miss Iris Costume 2012....
Have no fear, we haven't saved all the fun for the girls.....every garden need a gnome!
 The beard. The beard cracks me up.......
Say, you've got a taller gnome...maybe this costume will fit longer legs..ha ha ha
Nothing says fun like a gnome on a toadstool.

oh, don't get your beard in a knot, I didn't forget the babies....
and you bet your gnome cap, that the gnome suit comes in baby sizes too!
My sister found this site and these costumes last week, they're from and I had to share them with you guys too!

Fun idea for kids protraits, or I think costumes are fun any and every day, nothing like seeing a lil' flower shopping with their mom in Target! ha ha ha Or if you are craftier than me, maybe you could even sew one of these yourself!

gnome beards and hugs, your kandee

Look Who's 18 Months Old!

 well, to be exact, lil' Miss Ellie (Formerly known as Cupcake- yes that's what everyone called her when I was pregnant)...turned 18 months old yesterday.
And, although she never likes to wear hats, headbands, hair clips, nothing...she insisted on wearing this giant, hat...and yes it's a boys hat, if you were wondering.
 And my favorite part is that she wore it sideways, so it looked even bigger! She's so funny...I love how she says "thank you", now too...I'd have to make a video because I can't even type how she says it- it's so cute! It's kinda' like "teh two"..but cuter!
Ellie and my mama...Ellie calls her "Nan-nan" or "Mom-mom"...ha ha ha

hugs bigger than our big hat and big "age"....Kandee and Ellie
