Monday night FHE

Monday night all the Harris crew got together for FHE. It was great. We have now decided to get together every other month for FHE. It is so important for the family to stay close. I'm so lucky that we are a close family. I just love'em all!!!

Byron holding Nivee and Gabriella. Nivee is Ed and Val's youngest and is three months older than Gabriella.

Olsen scooted around on his bike the whole time

Even while grandma was leading us in song. :)

Here is cute Avery, she is Willie and Rachel's baby. She is so big now, it's kind of sad.

Nivee is getting around. Now there is some hair that I envy for Gabriella.

On the move - sort of

Gabriella can get around. Well, sort of, she can do a 360 on her belly and scoot backwards. It's pretty cute. She gets a little frustrated when she gets herself suck though. Here is the proof. :)

She is also getting pretty close to crawling. She gets on all fours and start to rock a bit. You can till she wants to do something, she's just not sure what. Give her a couple of weeks and I'm sure she will be zooming all over the place.

Beach day with cousins

This week and last week has been spring break on the Island. Today the Harris crew from Hilo drove over and all off us went to the beach. We went to Kua Bay and it was beautiful. The water is that amazing blue that you only see on tv. It is a little tricky to get to because you have to walk across a lot of lava rock to get to the sandy part of the beach. It is great beach for teenagers, but a little to much for little children. I think I still prefer my children lagoon that we always go to.
Too tired to explain each picture, but as you can see, we had a lot of fun.

Play-doh time

I decided to finally break out the play-doh. Olsen loved it. A few months back I tried and all I he did was eat it. Gabriella had a good time watching.

Olsen helped Gabriella with her sippy cup.......

....then joined her.

Snuggling with daddy early in the morning.

Olsen is such a big helper. I went to get a bib for Gabriella and when I got back Olsen was feeding her. Good thing the camera was right there so I could take this picture.

Pretty girl.

Olsen Entertains Gabriella

I'm not sure why, but Gabriella loved watching Olsen tossing around some baby wipes.

Full house

Today Shannon came over with Kelton and Nohea and our niece Kelsey is in town so she came over to hang out too.

Kelsey is great with the kids and played trains with Olsen

Here Olsen is saying "choo choo"

Olsen also went out and played ball with Kelton. Kelton is getting pretty good and hittin the ball off the T. Olsen just likes to wack it off the ground.

Gabriella doing her funny face

Kelsey and Gabriella

Nohea just sittin' back enjoying her apple. I'm only a little jealous of her hair. My girl is still as bald as the day she was born.

Cute Pictures

Gabriella was enjoying Olsen when he was playing peek-a-boo from behind her high chair.

But she didn't like when he tried to climb in (love her face)

And finally pushed him away. You go girl!

Gabriella can now get on all fours. This isn't a picture of it, but it's still cute.

Dinner time

Gabriella now joins us at the dinner table. Olsen now longer want to sit in his high chair to eat, so today I decided to see how Gabriella does in it. She has been so good at sitting up without help I thought she would like to hang out in the high chair instead of the bouncy seat. She loves the high chair. I just put some toys in there and she is happy for quite some time. It looks like I will be able to put her in there when I do dishes and such. This is a good thing.

This is how Olsen eats his taco. There is no wrong way right?

Not two seconds later he starts crying for no reason. Oh wait, I remember now..... a piece of meat fell out of the taco. Ah, to be two..........

Sunday Evening

After dinner Olsen wanted to ride his bike on the driveway. Byron and I took turn chasing him around with Gabriella in the stroller

I love this picture of Olsen. His hair is starting to grow out again and be kind of wild.

And this one isn't bad of Gabriella
