On my mission I had a German companion who introduced me to tea. This is the only kind that I like. When I asked her recently about the name of it she said she would send me some. She even sent some candies and cookies! So stinkin' excited!
For Christmas, Melissa and I gave Matt and my mom a trip to Hawaii. Of course I provided them with a place to stay. :o) Matt came late Monday night and we were able to hang out together until my mom came on Saturday night. Here are a few of our activities until this point.
Matt's friend Brent goes to BYU-H and he met us at the temple to hang out for an hour.
We didn't have enough time to go to the beach one day so we went to the pool instead. This was Josh's first time swimming. Didn't like it so well.
After my mom came we went to Waikiki and walked around all the shops. There was a guy with trained birds and he would put them on people (hoping to get money.) He kept calling Matt "my husband" and Jacob's "Daddy". (Sorry Blake!) Probably because we were together and he was holding Jacob's hand. Jacob DID NOT like the birds AT ALL!
Matt took a picture with the Duke.
Matt's First Hawaiian Pineapple. He picked it.
We went to Matsumoto's Shave Ice MANY times during our trip. Jacob's goal was to eat as much as he could from all of us, so while we were taking pictures he was trying to eat.
And of course when you are in Hawaii (especially in January) you need to get to the beach. We went to the Air Force Base where they had a really calm area which was perfect for kids. Josh LOVED splashing in the ocean (guess he just didn't like the pool.)
