Someone's Goin On Vacation

This was me, when I was about 7.
Me, my mom and dad, and sister, Tiffany went to Hawaii- it's the only time I've ever been there.
And although I had been planning a vacation for us to go there before the news about my dad last month...after that I didn't want to even eat, much less, even think about a vacation. I just had post-poned everything.

But as we are getting near to school starting next month, I thought it would be good for all of our hearts and our minds- to make some memories on vacation.

My dad always said that- "we're makin' memories", even when something not so good happened, my dad would just laugh and say, "we're makin' memories!"...

I know my dad would want us to go and have fun, since nothing has felt fun at all.
I don't really remember too much from when we went there when I was a kid, accept I remember the air smelled to amazing, like you were breathing in flowers. And I remember this day, when my dad helped me climb up onto this rock at these waterfalls...
Just like always my dad would take my hand and help me to where I was trying to go...
As you all know (probably, by now) that my dad died last month, just hours before he was supposed to pick me up from the airport...the last time we headed to get on a plane, was the last time I saw my dad. But I know my dad wouldn't want me to think about that part, he would just want us to go have fun, because he was always making sure everything was fun.
Me and my sister, posing with a hula dancer...who probably doesn't have that big 80's hair anymore...
And I kinda wish I still had those brown sandals I've got on. I think our dresses were made by my mom or Nana...we always had matching outfits that were sewn my mom or my Grama...ha ha ha

I'm am excited and feel so blessed that I will get to blog from such a pretty place...yes, I may be on vacay but I will still be blogging so that you guys will get to feel like you get to go on "vacation with your eyes"...

So look forward to picture where I look a bit older and taller, than in these ones! About the only thing that will be the same, is probably that I won't be wearing make-up like in these! (ha ha ha) I'm bring waterproof eyeliner and mascara in case I feel like getting "glam".....

hugs and hula skirts (I don't have enough boob-ness to wear the coconut top), your kandee
