Hello:

Well it is July all ready and so much has been going on, We just got back from Hawaii and had a great time. I also have been trying so hard to lose weight. I have lost 21 lbs so far. It has been a battle. But I am trying so hard. I know I didn't put it on over night and I am not going to lose it over night. So I am the slow and steady as the turtle goes (Grin) . We had a wonderful time in Hawaii. That was my anniversary present from hubby, it was our 30th on June 12th.. We took the kids with us they had a blast.. Figured they wouldn't get to go any other way. It was relaxing and peaceful. The kids first time in the airplane and they loved it.. I will try to down load pictures.. But like anybody cares.. I guess my subbies I have here don't give a flippin fig about my blog here.. Anyway we went to Kauai Hawaii the island of foliage. It was beautiful.. and the weather was very good yes it did rain everyday but it was showers u could be in and not get horrible wet. The Trade-winds keep the island cool. The high was 85 and low was 65.. I say that the weather was awesome. When everyone back home was 100 to 103.. And we were so cool, there is no humidity there. And the plant life there was beautiful and so was the waters. There was not bugs of any kind there.. but there were a lot of chickens and roosters.. even when going to the gas station. They were every where on the island.. Hubby and Kyle went deep sea fishing and caught tuna.. poor Kyle got sea sick once.. threw up over board and that was it.. He was a trooper.. He had a great time fishing. Kelly and I just lazy around the resort and I did laundry too as we had a washer n dryer so I didn't have to wash when we got home. We had a whole week there from Thursday to the following Wednesday. So we were there a total of 7 days. We also had a fun kitchen and i cooked our meals as it was terrible expensive.. I mean it was 40.00 for adults and 35 for kids even if you just got a burger and fries.. So they had grills and we grilled out every night and went to a little market they had near the resort.. not to bad., but of course if u wanted eggs they were like 5.99 a dozen and milk was 7.99 a gallon and the bread was like 2 something a loaf.. so we went and got a local card for the stores and it help us save quite a bit. If u had a Little Debbie addiction then go there and u will be broke from it... a dozen donuts were 6.99 a box and the cakes were like 6.99 a box of 6 and the pies were like 2.99 a pie.. so needless to say we didn't buy them.. What was kool was the local Walmart had surf boards but they were like 699.00 so that was pricey.. They had one Walmart and One Kmart and a few stores at the mall but all in all it was mostly tourist shops. We had a rental car and we put over 600 miles on it.. good thing they didn't charge by the mileage.. LOL But everything you wanted to do was clear across the island. so the only way to get any where was by car. But I must say it was a a great trip. This summer has been so busy. We got new pedi chairs for the salon and we have had a increase in business. And of course with Kyle in football and wrestling he has been busy with practices and also we had a Special thing with Kelly going to the "Major League All Stars Game" in Kansas City. It was total awesome. And we have a family Reunion on the 28th of this month. And also the first weekend in August we are going to Pennsylvania for a Little League game the Special Pony kids are going to help with the World Series that the Pony League has... So all in all it has been a busy summer so far.. Kyle will start His Jr. Year this year they start school on the 17th or 20th of August.. will know more when we register for school. He is excited for his Jr yr. But it also will be a stressful year as he will be preparing for the ACT's & SAT's.. He is starting to stress out a bit.. He also is Dating a girl from town here and they have been going out for over a yr.. minus 2 weeks that they broke up but all is well. She is home schooled. And works at the local grocery store as a checker. Kyle wants a job but with his school work and his sports he wouldn't be able to keep up.. So we have chose not to let him work. But it may change.. not to sure.. I can't wait to get back at crafting and scrap booking.. Took the summer off and well ever since April trying to save money for the trip.. And as soon as Kyle is registered for school and school clothes bought I am going on a major Scrap Booking shopping spree!! LOL LOL I so have been waiting for this.. I have to get pictures developed and do my Hawaii vac. scrap book.. Well I need to go I have a client that just came in and I have to get busy working.. Have a great day! Melody
