Hawai'i in September

Hawai'i has been awesome. Jim and Susan are great hosts and have been very good to us. I hope to return the favor to them someday.

Spending two weeks with Alex has been awesome. What a great kid. I couldn't be more proud to be his dad. I'm missing Kathi and Brianna terribly but know that what they are doing is worth the absence. My longing to see them exposes my love for the more and more.

During our time here in Hawai'i I've been stretching my wings as a photographer. I've been trying to move beyond the typical snapshot and have tried to capture images that display the beauty or uniqueness of this place. So far I've not found that to be an easy task. Here are some of the photos I have taken.

For more images please find me on Google+ where you can see my whole collection.

Goodbye for now

Today Alex and I took the girls to the airport. We said our goodbye's and now won't hear from them or see them for two weeks. I know that worry is a wasted thing but I can't help but to worry a little. Sending my ladies off to foreign lands that are out of my control for two weeks is tough. Maybe I'm a control freak or maybe I just love these ladies more than you can imagine. Either way, they're gone for now.
Tomorrow Alex and I will travel to Hawaii for almost two weeks. We are going to paradise to see our sis and bro-in-law in one of the most beautiful places in the world. This will help with my worry for the girls. I'm bringing our snorkel gear and my camera so there will be plenty to take my mind off things. I love my ladies and would trade a trip to Hawaii for the two weeks with them any day.
