Joshua Tree, Hawaii and Big Bear 08'

The past month has come and gone in a flash. Nothing but fun for us- spending Turkey day 5 star in the 5th wheel at Joshua Tree, on to Hawaii, then home a week before Christmas, and then 5 days in Big Bear for New Years. We have had a blast, but i think i'm ready to be home for a little bit. All of this fun can make a girl tired and needing to get back into some sort of routine, especially an exercise routine! Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!


Here we are getting ready to go out for a ride.....

The "Oasis"

My girl :)

Hawaii....a little R&R. We did alot of this...eating!

Beautiful Kona sunset

The Kona Christmas Parade...we were trying to get a picture with the Santa in the backround.

We can never get very far without him having to kill something.

Shane's hunt at Parker Ranch

Getting ready for Christmas....

Christmas jammies
It's always a good time together!!

Big Bear:
Papa and Houston having fun in the Snow.

Megan and Matt during our New Year's Eve bubble gum blowing contest.

Here's Amber modeling the most popular purchase of the week...fashionable snow boots from the local K-mart.

Snow Bunnies :)
Shay and Emmajane- glad they landed safely on this one, that is until the boys came flying down the hill-plowing right into Emma

B.F.F's :) Snow Ball fights seemed to be the hightlight even for the "adults"
more from the bubble gum contest. All the marks on the kids faces are from snowballs, mostly from the adults, but some of the adults had these same battle wounds! Good times!

And these two boy's could hardly take a break from eachother.

One fun Mema with Hunter and Miles.

Mema and some of the grandkids.

Thanks Vince and Wendy for a great week, full of laughs and wonderful memories!
