Aloha Here We Come!

A Moving Update

The news is out – as most of you probably know by now, we will be moving to Oahu, Hawaii early this fall. While they have never been to the state (or a real, non-PNW beach for that matter) Charlie and Zoe are pretty pumped about the move and wanted to share what they are most looking forward to – so we made a family list of what we each think our favorite parts of Hawaii will be:

Charlie says he will most like swimming at the beach, the waves, getting a shaved haircut just like Zoe, finding a new dog park, sniffing a new house, and more sandals to chew. He is not looking forward to the plane ride and is sad fewer socks will be worn and dirty for chewing.

Zoe thinks she will be afraid of the water and the waves but is excited to dig in the sand and go on new hikes with mom and dad. She is also looking forward to pottying on grass again (there is no grass in AZ).

Brian says BEACH. Then added Mojitos on the beach, a crossfit gym to go to again, possible crossfit on the beach and the beach again.

Liz – I’m looking forward to living in a house again (hopefully!), beach days, lots of yoga studios, hiking and LOTS of visitors.

Anyone have any exciting beach trips coming up this summer?

    Talk about an amazing adventure. I truly admire the way you embrace each moment and move — knowing that seeing Zoe and Charlie happy are truly all that matter ๐Ÿ˜‰ In particular, I think Zoe will enjoy the countless hula exercise classes that are certainly in her future. Enjoy and much love from your East Coast Peeps.

  7. Thanks Ginny! You are too funny – I’ll start googling Mommy and Me Hula lessons stat!
