Hmm... anything else?
I'm trying to come up with some things to bring me up to date with the blog.
We went to Hawaii again (seems to be a yearly event). And look!
My mom came with us! It was her first time in Hawaii in like 30 years. It was fun to share our "life" in Hawaii with her.
Sabrina & Nana:
The reason for our trip, Richard's cousin (Don) graduated from high school!
This is the tradition in Hawaii. Everyone piles leis on the graduate. It was kind of fun to watch. Someone holds a sign up with the graduate's picture/name so everyone can see where they are.
We didn't plan it this way, but our nephew (Alexander Pono, AJ for short... Alex Jr.) was born 2 weeks before we got there. We all had colds, so we had to wait a week before we could go see him. Isn't he cute? He's already crawling! I can't wait to see him this summer (if/when we go).
It's not a trip to Maui without doing some touristy things.
Like the Atlantis submarine (first time for this!). Sabrina was just barely tall enough.
My mom's gotta work on her shaka:
Uncle Alex took us to the high school's field to play with his dog (Kala).
And of course we spent time at the beach.
Shave ice at our new fave stand Ululani's
If you're ever on Maui, this is the shave ice to get! They make most of their own syrups (their webpage says it's now 100%) and they use Roselani's ice cream. Yum! Plus, they started in Portland (who knew, right?) We found out because I was wearing my Blazer shirt one day when we got shave ice and had a good conversation with the owner.
I take so many pictures, it's hard to choose which ones I like the best. Our first morning there, we took my mom up to Haleakala since it's like one of the #1 THINGS TO DO.
I really need to clean my camera (I'm a little scared and apparently camera shops won't do it). This is my fave, some people don't get it:
I guess that's all for now, I didn't realize how long this would get when I started!
