Larsen's Cove

Just another day in the South Pacific!

Saturday was another beautiful day in Samoa. We got our weekends' fill of sun, sand and surf at Larsen's cove. Anyone want to come for a visit? The clock's tickin!

Six years and six months

There was much to celebrate this past week. Trey had his 6th birthday and Scott turned 6 months. We celebrated Trey's day of birth multiple times because dad missed the first one. The "fun" party was at the bowling alley though. The fun came when someone actually hit a pin, no cheating with lane bumpers in Samoa. Luckily for us though, our kids don't know any different. Bowling was followed up by the ever popular McDonald's. Another birthday party down! How many more is that?
Then on Sunday, I decided to shoot Scott's 6th month photos myself with my fancy new Nikon that I know how to auto focus. How'd I do?
He does actually smile constantly, but I couldn't get a single one out of him on this particular day.

First bath sitting up!

Scott has eyes only for Ona. Isn't she precious?

Swim Meet

2 Weeks ago Trey participated in his first swim meet. He was a little hesitant at first, I believe his exact words were,"but what if I don't win a trophy"? He got past his first fear of failure, had a great time, and got a few ribbons as well.

He placed 2nd in the 20 yard freestyle and 20 yard kickboard. He also placed 4th in the dogpaddle (a very technical stroke indeed)

We hope to start olympic training in the fall.


Wow,we live here. Sometimes I have to stop a minute and think about that. It's easy to take for granted when it's what you see day and after day. I drive on the same road, the only road, and I forget to look around. It really is a beautiful place and though I miss eating at good restaurants, driving without dodging potholes, customer service, shopping in one store for ingredients for one meal, shopping.....I really do love it here. It's a good life.

That's my boy!

I think he got Mommy's eyes. Hard to say though.

That's Mommy---------------------->
