At church

Priscilla and I had a mommy and son shopping day! Super fun and our boys got to ride in these silly race-car strollers. They loved them!

My Easter cupcakes: coconut cupcakes with haupia filling.

Luka's grandma Jenna and grandpa Donnie got him this tool set to be like his dad and he loves it!!

Luka just woke up here and was so happy even though he had a messy bed head =)

Spring... Here in Hawaii spring isn't much different from other seasons. It has been raining on and off lately but I can't say that doesn't happen in every other season here. But when the rain is off we are on our way to the beach! or to Luka's kiddy pool. I guess Spring is different because we have Easter. We had a great Easter with Luka! We woke up and turned on the t.v. to watch general conference. Then of course I had some cupcakes to make! The turned out awesome! Probably my best yet. I made coconut cupcakes with a haupia (hawaiian coconut pudding) filling and buttercream frosting tinted easter colors. Then we gave Luka his Easter basket. He had a lot of fun throwing the plastic eggs ALL over our house! Next year I probably won't give him sooo many plastic eggs! He also got a bunny stuffed animal and some other toys and goodies in his basket. I know he won't remember getting a basket this year but I just wanted to start the tradition for him. I didn't dye eggs though which is usually a huge tradition of ours! A pretty competitive tradition actually. But I thought that might be a little messy with a very grabby little boy! But next year we will for sure! Anyways we had a brunch at my house for Easter. My mom, Donnie, Jai, Savanna and a family friend of ours, Ashley came over for the feast! It was super fun and the food was super good! We also had some virgin pear bellini's and mimosa's (sparkling apple cider with pear nectar or orange juice- very yummy!) I made whole wheat walnut pancakes and scrambled eggs and cupcakes, my brother made scrambled tofu, my mom made home fries with white potatoes and purple sweet potatoes and Donnie made a family recipe fruit salad with hand whipped whip cream. Everything was awesome! I felt like it was Thanksgiving! Luka had fun eating his gerber food but he at least got to eat with us in our little circle in the living room. I love Spring because I know summer is coming and although the weather doesn't seem to change much with each season the waves on the other hand do! Summer means flat lake-like water, PERFECT for my little Luka! I can't wait!!
