  1. Great list! Obviously the kids mean the world to you. I have to agree, kids especially your own, bring great joy to your life. I have to also agree with Itching for Hitching, Hawaii is marvelous and I can’t wait to go back!!


      • So close but still so far away. I’ve only been there twice and both times to Maui. Both times if you can believe it, it was when one of our kids got married first a son and then a daughter. I’d really like to go back for the relaxation and stead of a wedding haha.😃
