Day 120

Our kindergarten teacher was "Queen for the Day"
We made her a Hawaiian Queen and presented her
a haku {hawaiian headpiece} and shell leis.  The kids
also were to dress in her favorite color: PURPLE.  Look
carefully at Jayden's shirt {we had no purple so I improvised}

Did we really graduate BYU-H 10 Years ago???
We can't possibly be that old.
We had a great night visiting, with friends we graduated with

Huntington Beach. (It's where we ate dinner the night
of graduation, but in Waikiki) Some of my greatest memories are
of my college days in Hawaii.

about 1/2 hour to calm down jayden, then i'm forced to
vise him's not pleasant for anyone, but we have
the most incredibly patient and wonderful pediatric 
dentist.  after jayden comes ryder, by this point, I'm 
losing it.  thankfully jim came with me this time, and
