Happy Monday everyone! Wait! Is there such a thing?! Why do Mondays always seem to be a hard day? It’s so difficult to get back into the routine of school again, especially this close to the end. My preschoolers are definitely feeling it too! At least we can go outside and let them run off some energy. We have 3 weeks left and then we get a much needed break. Yay!!
Since I was thinking about vacation, I decided to show a few (!) more of my Hawaii pictures. I realized I hadn’t done any for awhile. I’m in the midst of some projects, but nothing is complete yet, so this will help fill the gap. Plus it’s nice to dream again!! Here is Part 1 and Part 2 if you missed them.
One of our free mornings, we decided to check out the aquarium. I decided I saw more of a variety of fish here than I did when we snorkeled, and this was much easier! I don’t remember all the names of the fish, but it’s so relaxing just to look at them and imagine the water and waves.
We probably all know these fish from Finding Nemo-Clown Fish! Did you know that Finding Dory is coming out next month? Can’t wait!
This little blue guy looked so pretty in front of the coral.
Yes, those are bright orange teeth on this fellow! I don’t think I would want to meet him underwater!
A beautiful purple sea urchin.
Jellyfish are just so cool to watch as they float in the water. Obviously, this is an Upside Down Jellyfish.
I love starfish and use them all over my house to decorate. I loved how these were all in a row.
One more! Isn’t this amazing!?
Well, hello grumpy!
I love to watch the seahorses too. The way they use their tail to hang onto the plants is so cool!
Love these guys!
They are all so pretty!
Well, I’m not so sure about these two!
This guy just stayed in one spot, upright, in the water. He would spin in slow circles around and around.
After the aquarium we met up with Haley and a couple of her friends for lunch at the famous Duke’s restaurant. This was named for the Duke Kahanamoku, who is famous for making the sport of surfing so popular. We had some really good food and it was fun to meet up with the kids and find out about what they had been doing too.
We even managed to get a family photo.
Do you have any vacation plans for this summer? I would love to hear where you are going! Thanks for stopping by today!

I used to go to the aquarium so many times on school field trips. I still remember it. The seals and the touching pond was one of my favorite parts of visiting.
