So We Went to Japan… Day 1

It has been waaaaaaay too long since we went for me to be finally posting a bit about it, but here we are, finally! I’m going to have to break this down into days because there is a lot of stuff that we did each day and a lot of pictures to share. I’m only…

Look, a blog post! about Family February, in May

Ok, I know that some of you are probably wondering what happened on our trip to Japan.. I promise we are getting to that. It was only 2 months ago, so plenty of tii… er more like almost 2.5 months ago. Look, who’s counting? Oh, right, I was. Ok. Fine. Well, you’re not getting it….

I Did A Thing

I debated for a moment which blog to post this on, and I decided that this was more appropriate because it’s just a cool Hawaii experience with some cool Hawaii pictures for me to add. Basically, by some fluke of programming that will likely never happen again due to the hubbub it caused, I ended…

Like the ocean we ebb and flow.

It’s been a tumultuous few weeks! (months?) We had a great trip to Japan. Even if it could have been better (when you get overwhelmed with planning the trip and just say, “come what may” that can happen), we already want to go back. However, today I am not going to discuss that trip. There…

Hawaii-less

As in, definitely a little less Hawaii-ing than we would like. I can’t believe my last update was in September!! Wow! Here’s why I haven’t updated since then: the first week of October was San Francisco Fleet Week, which probably goes down in history as the most miserable week of my entire life. An entire…

So Little Time!

Work has definitely gotten the best of both of us in recent weeks. Stephen’s job at the elementary school keeps him busy, and my work/practice schedule keeps me busy. We probably would have more time to do things if I weren’t preparing for an upcoming audition, but I’m spending a lot more late afternoons in…

Electric Beach! (and more)

The surf has been pretty bad on the south shore this summer, which stinks because we just moved here and it’s supposed to be within quick driving distance! But lucky us, I guess the best surfing so far has actually been up in Kailua and Kaneohe, but it’s a half hour drive, and that makes…

Better with Friends!

I can honestly say not much exciting has happened since our family vacation to Maui. Sometimes work just kinda takes over, and the weather here hasn’t really been cooperative, if you can believe that. Plus, Stephen has been getting ready to start as the music-and-helper-outer teacher at Moanalua Elementary School, which has left him feeling…

Moar Maui With Ohana

If I were blogging for an income, I’d be broke. I also forgot how important it is to knock these out as soon as possible while the memories are still fresh. No worries, though. That’s what all the photos are for! Anyway, onward and upward. Last I left you, we were snuggling into our beds…

Maui With Ohana

Aloha everyone! It’s been a few weeks because work was busy enough for both of us that there really wasn’t anything to post about. Then we finally got to have a family vacation in Maui! Growing pains aside (who knew that two adult children were going to have living-together growing pains?), we all had a…

Catching up… on Maui! Part 7

Aloha! There’s not much to catch up on our week Hawaii-wise, since Stephen has all the end-of-school busy-ness going on. I had my PRT on Monday and beasted it by running my 1.5 miles in under 10 minutes, which put me at a respectable 6:30 min/mile pace! But it also wiped me out for the…

Catching Up… on Maui (and our week)! Part 6

Talk about a week with nothing to catch up on. Pau Hana surf kinda sucked… it was all choppy, so I literally caught only one wave, and it was short. I tried to catch one earlier in our surf session, but when I heard it start crashing behind me, I just thought a few expletives…
