Aloha, my friends!

Did you know that aloha has 3 meanings?
Good bye.
I love you.

Its all in how you say it! Pretty cool, huh?
I learned several other new words while I was
far away in the Pacific ocean, but that's the
one we used most often.

I almost said it to the guy at the burger place last night.
It made me laugh.

So, we're back.
It was an amazing trip.
I'm already looking forward to the day we go back.
Some day.
Probably far in the future.
But some day!

I am disappointed to report that I didn't
visit a single quilt shop while I was away.
I found a few on google, but
they were usually too far away and on a day
we didn't have a rental car.
Total bummer.

But I did find these quilt squares
And here is a pillow in the same display
Very pretty.
But since I didn't find a LQS to visit, I'm going to
have to find some hawaiin fabric online
and design a quilt as a remembrance of our trip.

Here is a pic of dh and I

And here are a few more misc shots
This is me and the kids at Volcanoes National Park
This is hubby, kids and grandma and grandpa
at Waimea Canyon
Hubby, our kids and our niece and nephew
on Waikiki Beach the afternoon of our arrival
Us and the boy at dinner one night
LOL! This is Allie and I kayaking in Kauai.

Hope you enjoyed just a brief peek at our amazing vacation.

Now that I am home, I can get back into my quilting!
What should get done first is running through my mind.
I have at least 5-7 quilts worth of fabric down in the Cave.
And 3 of those need done before christmas.
But, I'm still trying to recover from the trip.
And the sheer amount of laundry that needs to be done
I'm sure I'll be working on something soon, tho :)
I'll keep you updated!
