Home Project

Mia wanted to build a birdhouse. I didn't have a clue, but gave it a shot. I found some scrap wood from around the house and jumped right into it.
I just winged it, measuring as I go along. Its starting to come together.
2 hours later and it was finished. The roof will probably leak. Guess who also chose the colors. I wonder if the birds will be attracted or turned off by the bright pink.

Kokonuts in Hawaii Kai

Mia and I went to eat shave ice at Koko Nuts in the Koko Marina Shopping Center. She had watermelon and banana with mochi balls on the bottom. Even President Obama ate shave ice here.

My dad and my sister's family went to Camellia's on McCully Street for lunch. $15 all you can eat buffet. Expect to come out smelling like smoke when you are done. We got together to celebrate father's day and my niece's b-day. It takes us awhile to get together.

Piano Lessons

Mia has piano lessons every Friday. So when she is there, I make a quick drive to Sandy Beach and take some pictures. Thats why now you get the "Aloha Friday from Sandy Beach " photos for the blog and facebook.

Grace Hawaii DVD W/ wipeouts

Thanks Sharon for putting together the dvd label and piecing together all the wipeouts ( there were alot) for another section on the dvd. The Apple computer is amazing with all the apps you can use to make you own videos. Hopefully we can get Ron and Hoptong on board for some more killer footage. I saw the vid on youtube and someone actually commented- I think he was from Canada.
