Hawaii update #1

Yesterday, Amy and Cory (my brother and sister) and me and Parker met my Mom in Maui. On the way to the airport I was so nervous about taking Parker on a plane. What would he be like? Would he turn blue? The plane rides went pretty good. He maybe turned a tiny bit bluer than normal, but nothing too need for oxygen! The first flight from Little Rock to Dallas was pretty hard. Parker was very fussy the entire flight (about an hour). The lady sitting next to me was great and tried to play with Parker, but he just wanted to get out of my lap! We made it through the flight, PTL!! Here is Parker walking through the airport with his leash (we tried to make him tired!!)

On the flight from Dallas to L.A. Parker did SOO great!! We sat in first class and had so much room. I brought some toys on the plane and put a blanket down on the floor. Parker just sat on the floor and played most of the time. He ended up taking about a hour and a half nap. This flight was 2 hours 45 minutes. The last flight from L.A. to Hawaii was 5 1/2 hours! Parker did so great on this flight too. He played for a little while and then slept for 3 hours!!

Here is Parker playing with his toys on the plane.

Amy let Parker sit in her seat for a little while!

Here is Parker sleeping on the plane in the floor on his "bed". I am so proud of him! He did great!

Here are me and Parker in the Hawaii airport....we made it!!

Hawaii is 5 hours earlier than Little Rock. We got to Hawaii at 9:00 (2:00 am Little Rock time). We kept Parker up for a little while after we got to the hotel. He ended up waking up at 5:30 am and got in bed with Amy for a few minutes. I was surprised that he slept that late (that is 10:30 am Little Rock time). He did great today with the time change. He took a nap from 11:00 to 1:00 and then from 4:00 to 5:30.

Here is Parker hanging out around the hotel lobby. It is so beautiful here!

This is the view from our back door! This is the pool and past that is the ocean.

Here is Parker playing in our "back yard". Our condo is on the bottom level and our balcony leads out onto a lawn. On the other side of those bushes is the pool. It is very convenient and so fun for Parker!!

We also went swimming today. Parker played for a little bit, but got tired. We put him down for a nap and while he slept we laid out by the pool. Since our room is so close to the pool we can use a baby monitor while outside.

Tonight we went to town and had dinner at Kimo's. It was the best fish I have ever had. We ate on the back patio while the sun set. Here is mom and Parker after dinner being silly1
