This summer we went on the most amazing vacation to Hawaii! We were in Kauai for 2 wonderful weeks - I'm pretty sure island life agrees with our family! We had such a good time and Sully got to experience so many new things for the first time. He had his first plan ride (8 hours!) and all in all, he did really great. He had to adjust to the time change once we got there and took it like a champ. He played in the sand, splashed in the ocean, ate yummy Hawaiian pineapple, and celebrated his first birthday while there. I don't think I have ever seen a more beautiful place than Kauai - and here are the pictures to prove it!

First trip to beach - he wasn't too sure about the sand at first, but ended up loving by the end of the trip.

Celebrating his first birthday, eating brownies out on the patio!

Sully's First Birthday

My little man is 1! Hard to believe that he already a year old - time has flown, but this has been the best year of our lives. Sullivan is such a joy and we love him more than we ever thought possible.

We had a great party for him, and of course it was pirate themed :) We had so many friends and family there, it really made it a special day for our whole family.

The table, food and cupcakes!

Opening gifts!

Eating cake! He's got quite the mouthful!

Going for it! Forget the hands, he dug in face first!

I think he likes cake!
