Yes, its totally TRUE!! She started walking on June 6th, Patrick was home and she took some steps. He went to work and that night she just wanted to move around! She is getting to be so good, but it really wears her out. Last night I put her to bed late- 8:30pm and she woke up this morning at 10:15am. That is nearly 14 hours of sleep, she then went down for a nap around 11am and did not wake up until around 3pm. So within a 24 hour period she has slept 18hours!! The walking I believe is exhausting her, but she is so proud of herself! Here is a little clip of her walking, sorry, but my voice might get a bit annoying. You might want to turn your sound down, or hey, maybe the music from our site will drown it out!

KAUAI was awesome, we had such a great time! We would really like to move there, maybe some day. At least we could have a vacation home there?! Anyways, we got there on the 23rd after a long day of chaotic travel.
We arrived to our beautiful home our parents rented for the 10 days and immediately did not ever want to leave. We were in the heart of Princeville, which I thought was the nicest place on the island to live. We had our own private beach, which you had to hike too. We had a pet too, an Albatross, which are endangered. Our house had a baby, and he/she will probably leave the property sometime this month.
He/she will travel the seas for about five years before coming back to mate. Once it mates, the eggs are laid around Princeville. Our neighborhood alone had at least four babies at different houses. There was one at the house across the street, one two houses down and one also at my step-sisters dads home. Plus ours made four, and wow are they amazing birds.
The mom/dad come to visit their babies at least once a day for feeding and its something you have got to see for yourself. The noises they make and how the feeding happens is amazing.

Elle took to the sand really well, she liked it more than the water. The ocean was a little cold, but she loved it more and more everyday we played in it. We took her to our neighborhood park to swing and she had fun at that too.

Ali in her rehersal dress! Isn't it lovely!
Awesome wedding dress!
Ali's wedding was so beautiful, words cannot describe it. I wish we had taken pictures, but we had a great time. I am so happy to have been a part of the wedding party. The wedding was held at Na Aina Kai Botanical Gardens at the private beach and meadow. Here's a clip of the rehersal, sorry the video is crooked. I don't know how to correct it.

Enjoy this slideshow of our FUN in KAUAI!

Family Moments

Each family has moments,
Moments of happiness and emotion.
Moments that show love and kindness.
To each member of the family.

Some family moments are sad,
Some show hate that never lasts.
Then the truth shines and shows,
Each family moment is special after all.

Family moments may show happiness,
Happiness that lights up the earth.
Family Moments are amazing,
So don't forget your...
Family Moments.
