The following snapshots are an incomplete representation of our trip to Hawaii but I must console myself with the thought that prior to Instagram, I would have had nothing to document our time. I have never been a camera person; I always seem to be a step behind when it comes to “capturing the moment” so Instagram is perfect for me. It’s on my phone and it leaves me with the illusion that I can actually take photos, which I can’t, but I don’t feel quite so inept. You must put up with grainy, slightly out-of-focus photos. Sorry.
Not a promising look from Theo on the morning we left for the airport. He rose to the occasion and snapped out of his funk. Mark put it in his head that only ‘happy boys’ go to Hawaii. Yes, we will be paying the psychologist bills for that but it certainly worked.
Titus and Theo with the captain of our snorkeling boat and our personal babysitter 🙂 He had five children of his own so we felt like he knew the ropes. We were an oddity in Hawaii; we saw very few big families. I heard quite a few surprised exclamations as we piled out of an elevator or walked into a restaurant. “Six??” “Wow!!”
Titus’ Make-A-Wish trip would have been to stay home and take his naps. He wasn’t a big fan of tramping around the city or sitting on the beach all day. But he did enjoy eating sand, a small compensation for all of his trials.
As I am putting these pictures together, I realize two things. First, these pictures are very spotty and leave big chunks out of the trip, the problem with using a phone. Sometimes my phone was dead or forgotten at the hotel, etc… Secondly, I really did go on this trip. I guess I was taking all the pictures. Hmm… I will have to fix that next time we go to Hawaii 🙂 Right.
