Mele Kalikimaka

Linnea had a memorable first Christmas in Rockford, followed the very next day by a trip with the Daniels clan to beautiful Kauai. Although it took us nearly two days to get there (long story), it was well worth the trip. Above she's pictured with Mommy on the deck of our condo - that's Hanalei Bay and Bali Hai (yes, from South Pacific) in the background.
Above, she's at the lagoon, trying out her first ukelele with Aunt Aimee. Below, she's admiring the handiwork of Uncle B on a larger (albeit still very Hawaiian) stringed instrument.
Despite the sleep traumas of the four-hour time change, Linnea still managed to soak up some sun (well covered in SPF 45, of course) and enjoy her very first departure from the continental U.S. Aloha!

How nice to be able to take a trip like this in the midst of the winter we're having. The pics are all wonderful -- you all are so photogenic!
