"I can stand all by myself!"

Kashus is 9 months tomorrow and he learned to stand up a couple days ago! As of yesterday he's been doing it more consistently. He is getting so big so fast. He definately has quite a strong personality and loves to scream, laugh and gets excited everytime Aya comes in the room.

So I know I've been complaining about work lately but...I can't complain too much cause what other jobs let you make your own schedule and go to the beach during the week? My other high school friends came into town this week from Seattle and we got to hang out with them at the beach yesterday.

Sometimes I feel like...

I am losing a piece of my sanity a little at a time. I'm sure most parents...mother's especially, go through this. Most of it is self inflicted and I know it's my fault. I sometimes think I can do more things than I possibly have time for, which adds to my stress and of course trickles down to my family. I feel like I am constantly working whether it be for Evans Construction, or my own personal things (plural) on the side, and of course during all this madness, Kashus is teething and not sleeping as well as usual at night. I definitely believe boys are weaker than girls cause I never had issues with Aya when she was teething. I must say though that Dean has been a great help around the house lately with the kids, giving me massages, and... I don't even have to ask him to do the dishes anymore! Hopefully someday I won't have to work as much...

Well despite all the work I was able to make it out to Pipeline beach on the weekend with a friend of mine from High school who was visiting for a couple days. Luckily we live in Hawaii and I don't have to go too far to relax at the beach!

Mmmm....Yummy Matsumoto's Shave Ice!!

We're goin to the zoo, zoo, zoo...

As if I hadn't taken enough time off from work already with the vacation and all, I decided to take Aya and Kash to the Honolulu zoo with their cousins Hugo and Anna anyway. We hadn't been there in awhile so Aya was old enough to actually enjoy it this time and was able to recognize almost all of the animals versus only knowing the farm animals last time. We didn't stay too long but it was a nice breezy day and the perferct amount of time to make our rounds.

I also included some pictures from Aya's friend Mahea's 2nd birthday party at Gunstock Ranch. Me being a bit overprotective, I made Aya wear the helmet so she looks a bit like a bobble head, nevertheless she had lots of fun and didn't want to get off the horses.
