So Jude has had this milk allergy where I can't eat ANY dairy, since I am his source of food. He is 6 months now and I figured I would try something I have really been craving.... ice cream! I have had it almost every day for a week and he has been such a happy baby! I think its over! FINALLY!

So we are back from Hawaii! We had the best vacation ever! We went with Nick's immediate family to Oahu for 6 days and then to the Big Island for 6 days. We visited with lots of family, had great food, lived on the beach, and had a FABULOUS time! Thanks to Grandma and Grandpa Corotan for a wonderful time!
Before we went to Hawaii, we were able to spend some time in California with Grandma Baker and the Corotan's. We miss living there and it was good to visit with friends and family! We were so glad Jude got to meet more of our friends.
While we were on Oahu we stayed at a beach house. We had a lot of fun in the sun! Cubworld played at BYU Hawaii while we were there and they had one of the best shows! It was so fun and the crowd loved them. We went to the Polynesian Cultural Center and spent a fun day there and also went to the night show. Since we had a cousin that got us in, he asked Dan and Kelsey if they wanted to be apart of the parade as Hawaiian royalty. It was fun to have them apart of the show! We also went to the swap meet near Honolulu and went to Waikiki Beach afterwards. We ate good food at Ted's Bakery and had shave ice from Matsumoto's. We also had family pictures taken the last day we were there. I will post them soon.
While we were on the Big Island we spent lots of time with family! We were very well fed and loved all them time we spent with family. We stayed with Uncle Stan and Auntie Linda and their family. It was so nice of them! We saw where Alton (Nick's Dad) grew up in Kohala. It was fun to put a place to all the stories we have heard. We had the best treats called Malasada's. If you haven't had one, you need too! Alton raved about these and then I tried one and I am trying to figure out how I can get more without having to fly back to Hawaii.
We also hiked down to Waipio Beach. It was a good hike down and when we got down there the beach had black sand. It was so awesome! I didn't have my camera though and I was so bummed! I wasn't looking forward to the hike back up, but thankfully I had Jude with me and so some locals picked us up and gave us a ride up the mountain. I can't tell you how happy I was.
The last couple days on the Big Island we lived at the beach. We went snorkeling, body boarding and I learned how to paddle board. It was a blast! We hated to leave. Hopefully we can go back sometime soon....
