During the last week of summer, we took a wonderful family vacation to Hawaii. Jeff has been to Hawaii many times on business, and he and I went to Hawaii to celebrate my 40th birthday, but the kids had never been. We had an amazing time!

Jeff and the kids even took surf lessons (while I strolled around the Waikiki strip).

They both did awesome! I am so impressed by their fearlessness and eagerness! Benjamin was a natural. The instructors were quite amazed that he was able to stand up all the way on the first wave.

I'm not sure we'll be surfing again anytime soon, but I can imagine Claire or Benjamin paddling around off some shore in the future. Whenever or wherever that is, I hope they remember this day!

Those videos are awesome! We've totally got to get Benjamin and Katja together again for a surf date! She was the natural in our group. :-)

What an amazing and fun thing for Claire and Benjamin! (and Jeff).
