We all have those lists. Lists of things we have always wanted to do. On my list is whale watching. It started in middle school when I wanted to be a marine biologist. This was until I realized just how much science was required in the field. So I just settled for a great whale watching trip. So when I found out that the humpback whale wintered here in Hawaii I was thrilled. Finally I would get to see them up close. So off we went. We boarded the Honolulu Starlet excitement brimming at the surface. As the boat chugged out of the safety of the harbor Zac leaned over to me and said "I sure hope the ride is smooth." In my excitement I had forgotten that the men in my life have somewhat of a weak stomach, but then again the boat was bigger then the last we had been on...
Once out into the open ocean we all decided to go out onto the front deck so we could get a better view. Then the boat started hitting the waves...here in this picture you see the happiness in Anne's face as we strike one such wave. You also see the hint of green creeping slowly into Zac's and Andrew's face. So while Anne and I were loving the ups and down of each wave Zac and Andrew decided to retire back inside to ease the queeziness that plagued them both. Sorry my boys!
Anne: Mom, I want to get a pet dolphin.
Mom: Anne where are you going to keep this dolphin?
Anne: Well, I will get a huge bowl, bigger then the ocean, fill it with water, then keep it in our living room.
Mom: Do you think it will fit?
Anne: Well, I think we will have to move the couch.
