Happy 2016!

We rang in the new year by just hanging out with our neighbors.  We made a "photo booth" in our front lanai (with clearance gift wrap I found at the PX) and watched the Times Square ball drop at 7pm our time.  The kids ran around outside (and inside) playing with balloons, glow necklaces and whatever else they could get their hands on.  The grown men played some games too, but the ladies mostly sat around chatting. 
 

 
Not everyone made it to midnight, but Bryan, Marlie and I did ring in the Hawaiian new year.

 

On January 1, we enjoyed our traditional New Years Day meal: pork, collard greens, and black eyed peas.

September 2015

In September, Bryan and I took advantage of a morning when he was off and both girls were in school to hike the Kealia Trail. 
 
The start of college football made for some early mornings cheering on our Dawgs. 


 
We enjoy taking advantage of using the Hale Koa resort located in Waikiki.  We spent a full day there with our friends bouncing back and forth from the beach to the pool.
 
 
Marlie participated in a golf clinic at Leilehua Golf Course, which is the local military course.


We got to enjoy a rainbow while having dinner from some food trucks.

 
We went to an event called Sunday Funday at the Ward Warehouse in Honolulu.  The girls got to make prints, we watched a breakdancing contest (only in Hawaii do they breakdance in "slippahs"), and then got stuck in notorious Honolulu traffic.
