Happenings...its been a while

We have been keeping busy these past few weeks...

Since there are so many pictures in this post I am not going to write too much.

Coconuts



My first turtle sighting

Surfing and sunset

Cooking the fish our neighbor gave us!

Presidents Day:
We went to Honolulu to spend the day at the beach and to visit the aquarium with our friends Matty and Lindsay.

The Aquarium...the smallest aquarium in the world! Which is odd...we are in the middle of the biggest ocean in the world, and we have the smallest aquarium???


For the past two weeks Pike's Uncle Ray and Aunt Marie came to visit their daughter Skye and her husband John(who is in the navy). We were fortunate enough to go and do touristy things with them. We loved having them here!
The Arizona Memorial...the ship still lays below

Whats left of the gun turret

The oil that is still spilling out of the ship

In front of the Arizona Memorial


Missouri Battle Ship

Big Guns

Heavy Helmets


The Bunks

View of the Arizona Memorial from the Missouri...there was also a rainbow, but you cant see it in the picture!

Mayday! Mayday!

AttteeennTION

Polynesian Cultural Center

River Ride and Guide


Learning the hula

River Parade



Inks and fish made from palm frawn

All the WINNERS!
We learned how to throw spears...These 3 (Aunt Marie, John, and Pike) were are able to make it in the target!

Spear throwing teacher and student

Champion: he won this after 3 throws!

Luao

Big Lips

The Pig: Kind of gross to see but soooo good to eat!

Yummy!

Pina Coladas: DELICIOUS! I wish we would have taken pictures of the food, it was fantastic!

Dancing: they asked for newlyweds to go up and dance on the stage, so we did!

Just so you know these pictures made me cry. Maybe it's because I miss you....or maybe Hawaii. I bet it's a combination of both though. You two are so dang cute.
