Day #2 - Saturday - We're Here!!

We're Here! It was a very long day and a very long flight but we have safely landed in Hawaii. Our Marriott Timeshare is absolutely beautiful and huge. . . we have a 2 bedroom with the largest kitchen and living room of any condo we have seen. We have a balconey too. We have such a large place that I was kind of wishing some of the kids were with us but it will be good to have time with just Kerry and I. Here are just a few photos of our arrival. I slept lot on the plane but Kerry can't ever sleep in cars or planes so he is very tired. We plan to rest this evening and begin our adventures tomorrow.

Day #1 - Friday - Off to Salt Lake City

Our first stop. . . Courtyard Mariott Hotel next to the Salt Lake City Airport.

Because we had such a busy week and we were both exhausted, we decided to drive to SLC tonight after work and stay close to the airport. Besides, it turned out less expensive to stay and leave our car there for no charge instead of paying the airport parking fees.

We enjoyed the swimming pool and hot tub and then returned to our room early to prepare for arising at 5:30 tomorrow.

A Life Long Dream - Honeymoon #14

Off to Oahu!

Kerry and I celebrated our 14th anniversary in December of 2008. Every year since we have been married, Kerry and I take turns planning our special day and it always includes a trip. Some have been only one night, some have been longer. Some have been farther away and some have been very close to home. This past anniversary we were very pleased to have my mother here visiting us from Illinois and so we celebrated at home and decided to postpone our "honeymoon" until summer. So today has finally arrived. We are headed to HAWAII! This has been a life long dream for us and we have been saving since we got married. Each day for the next 10 days I hope to be able to post one photo and a brief description of our trip.
I hope you enjoy. . .

Enjoying Tayven & Kyla

Just a few favorite photos from the last few days. Kisses for Tayven from Grandpa.

We got up that morning and did our hair so that we would be cute for our photos with Tayven. Then we put on Kyla's new dress and went to the hospital. It was SO fun to watch Kyla with Tayven for the first time.

Happy Anniversary Heidi & Eric!

We sure are glad for things like anniversaries for our kids because that means that Grandma and Grandpa get to babysit! We had so much fun with Aden. He laughed the whole time. We went for two walks, jumped on the tramp, played on the swings, bounced on the horse, had dinner, and got ready for bed. What a wonderful evening we had.

Their Son is Born!!!

Grandchild #5 - Tayven Boyd Denney
7 lbs. 2 oz. - 19 i
6:43. a.m.

About 6:00 a.m. we got a call from Hyrum apologizing for waking us so early. No problem!! I jumped up, brushed my teeth, threw on some blue jeans and headed to their house. When I arrived Amiee was smiling and breathing through her contractions. Hyrum gave her a beautiful blessing and they headed off to the hospital. She was doing so great! By the time I got there and they left it was about 6:20. Kyla was still asleep so I laid down on the couch to rest for a bit. Thirty minutes later Hyrum called and said that baby Tayven was here. I seriously thought he was joking! It was hard to believe that in about 20 minutes our beautiful 5th grandchild had arrived!

"He camed!! He camed!! Tayven camed!" - said big sister Kyla :)
