It’s 4 :15 on Monday afternoon, Hawaii time. The first moment I have had since yesterday morning to take a breath. Not too many though, because the Spicy Strawn 6 will pick us up in 25 minutes to take us to our big Luau in Big Lou. But first, I must get down some thoughts about yesterday. It was unreal. I saw the southeast side of the island from the air and the northwest side of the island on the ground. Having thought about it the last day or so, I have decided Continue reading
I thought it would be nice to get in writing a different perspective other than my own about this once-in-a-lifetime-trip and I have been
bugging asking the boys if either of them would like to contribute. Dan has been pretty busy catching up on Netflix and You Tube videos but Mike finally took the bait and decided he had something to say. I am so glad he did. And I am grateful that all of his hard work the past however-many-years has allowed us to do something this amazing.

I was up super early and went out for a walk to see the sunrise. I ended up meeting a nice woman named Pam from Cali who owns a house here and just arrived for the next two months with her Great Dane service dog and her veterinarian husband. We chatted Continue reading
Day 23 Family Photo – on our porch at sunset. We had a silly girl again last night, all hopped up on spaghetti and chocolate mousse cake. Unfortunately silliness quickly turned to tears… none of us can remember why this morning but we all clearly thought it was funny. That is, except for Casey! Continue reading
It was our last morning on the Kohala Coast in our gorgeous, decadent home by the beach. Of course, there was lots to do to get ready for our one last move before we head home next weekend. We have only one more week which I am finding hard to believe. But, before we left our favorite little spot of paradise, Mike and I trekked down Continue reading
I couldn’t not choose both of these pictures that Mike took last night of a family with a goofy girl all showered, ready to watch Despicable Me 1 and then enjoy an early bedtime.
That early bedtime was for all of us, actually. Mike rose at 5 and then slowly started to stir his dead tired family. He was ready to get on the road this morning. We drove about Continue reading
Michael and I got up early as usual and snuck out Continue reading
