My Favorite Hawaiians

It's always a joy to be able to photograph your loved ones -- especially grandchildren! Don't get jealous, My Children. You still get your fair share. Without further ado, here are just a FEW of many photos of my little "locals" of Hawaii, plus a few additional pics -- I just can't resist. It's paradise, after all.

  1. These just take me back! And those boys...ADORABLE! I can't wait to see them!

  2. LOVE IT! Thank you!!! Best kids in the WORLD! AND. Best GRANDMA in the world!

  3. Oh that picture of Waimea Bay... it brings back the old feelings and smells, and those field trip feet!!

    Thanks, Shelly, for sharing your pictures and handsome grandsons!! They made my day, even if I had to wait to see them until I got home (can't view pictures from Flckr, etc. at school)...

  4. Oh oh oh oh! Such treasures! I know you've sent me some of these. But I need to go back and check . . . I don't think I can live too long without a copy of Lincoln and the sea turtle. Wow. I love you Shelly. I'm so blessed to share those boys with such an amazing woman. I'm with Richie: Best GRANDMA in the world!!
