I have successfully moved this blog to a VPS!
The morning we left for our Hawaii trip, I had a hard drive failure in the server hose ring this blog. The server happens to be a machine I have sitting at home. My goal was to keep the blog updated while on the Vacation, but with the hard drive failure, that simply did not happen. I ended up finding a cheap VPS provider that will serve the needs of this blog just fine. The added bonus is that I no longer have any ports open coming into my home network!
Well, 7 days in Hawaii was all we got to enjoy. Abby and I spent the last morning at the resort pools while Michelle packed. We left at checkout time, got lunch and headed to the airport.
It was a fantastic Vacation and definitely something we would like to do again!
Happy birthday Abby!
June 10 was Abby’s birthday. We spent the morning relaxing in our room watching TVs and such waiting for our Catamaran adventure.
Our catamaran boat ride was so much fun. We saw lots of dolphins while we were out including a pod of bottlenose dolphins and a pod of spinner dolphins. One of the dolphins hooked himself on the front of the boat and just rode there for a while. Very cool. Later we went snorkeling. Michelle got to see more because she had contacts, but I was able to stay in the water longer. There were lots of fish and we saw a green sea turtle. After we got back on the boat, one of the guys came up with a live octopus!
After we got back to the resort, we were able to celebrate Abby’s birthday with a cupcake.
Got into Hawaii late last night. It’s always an adventure when you travel that long we got up at 5 am Eastern time and didn’t get to the hotel until about 6:30 pm Hawaii time. For those doing the math 6:30 pm in Hawaii is 12:30 am back on the east coast! Even as exhausting as the travel time is, we are so looking forward to the rest of the trip!! Here’s a few photos of our arrival.
Flying over the Islands. Not sure which ones, but don’t think it is Oahu.

Abby has 2 days left of Kindergarten! What a quick year it has been! It’s exciting to see her growing up so fast, I just wish she would slow down. I am very proud that she has done so well this year. She also has been part of an amazing class with a phenomenal teacher. Mrs. VanWinkle is one of the best Kindergarten teachers out there.
We are looking forward to our summer getting started with a trip to Hawaii and what next year will bring us in first grade.
We went to Fantasmic at Disney Hollywood Studios tonight. Abby was super excited about it. It was so cool to see her reaction to all the special effects. I liked the pyrotechnics and Michelle enjoyed the three of us getting in some good family time. Abby was so tired when we were done and she missed Lucky while we were gone.
