We walked down the street to see the Hawaii Kai Christmas parade. Brian's son Kastin is in the Kaiser High School marching band. Here is some video of them performing. Kastin is in the very beginning playing the trombone. You just catch a glimpse of him putting his instrument down.

Joe's fin plug repair. Joe is studying to be in the medical profession. Here is his surfboard surgery. He said that this happened because he used marine (boat) resin. I think you can get airbubbles like this using regular resin too. Anyway, the operation was a success and he got his board back in the water. Too bad it was for waves like this.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! We had alot of friends and relatives over at our house this year. I think that we have the same reasons for being thankful. I am most thankful for family and friends, and good health to be able to work hard and enjoy being active with my children. Hope everyone had a great thanksgiving being with their families!

I was thinking of a title for these photos- unexpected visitor, special guest, but this is the one and only local of this beach. We are the visitors and guest of his ocean home. Every so often these monk seals will rest on the beach for a couple of days. Sometimes they are even swimming in the water with us when we are surfing. I like how he/she is resting his head on the rock like its a pillow.

Here are some highlights from my day with Seth and Mia. First we went to Yogurtland. This was a first time for me and WOW! it was delicious. Mia had a lychee and mango yogurt with Captain Cruch cereal topping. Seth had double cookies n' cream with brownie topping. I had a taro and a green tea combo- Unreal! I kept thinking of the Seinfeld episode about the yogurt having fat in it because something this good can't be good for you. Hah hah!
Its been awhile since I updated my blog and even longer since I went surfing. What a nice surprise to go down to the beach and be greeted with these waves. I spent all of my time on the lefts, but you can see there were good rights too. I hope you all were able to enjoy the weekend as much as I did. Aloha and mahalo!

At Mia's Japanese School, they had a field day called Un-do-kai. Its an outdoor event and the different classes compete in track and field like events. They had a great time!
Here is a sprint to the finish line. Last place, but not a care in the world.
Even the parents got involved. Here is Yuka and Mia doing some sort of broom race.

Halloween came and went. We had a fun time! Mia is at the far left as Jasmine from Disney's Alladin. Seth has his back turned- can you guess what he was?! Ebi Nigiri Man! He comes up with the idea and we have to think of ways to design it. It came out pretty good. A pillow and pillowcase, some black felt, green spraypaint wasabi, and some craft material for the shrimp.
