Our Year in Review Pt. 2


I boarded a plane on the 6th to meet my friend, Katheren, at the Honolulu airport.  
She brought me some fresh, beautiful smelling leis!

I had such an amazing time with my friend!  She was such a great hostess- taking me to the Polynesian Cultural Center and tickets to Ha: Breath of Life, trips to various beaches- including the one where LOST was filmed(particularly where the plane crashed), a guided tour around Honolulu and Pearl Harbor, the Dole Plantation, and sightseeing in downtown Waikiki.  I have lots of pictures on Facebook(and still need to upload some more), but maybe someday I'll get around to doing a blog post on it.  It really was a memorable experience, and I was fortunate to get plane tickets from Aunt Pat, and for my friend, Katheren, who provided me a place to stay, spoiled me with all these experiences and sent me home with souvenirs!
She even gifted me her old Rebel camera, and we played with her cool lenses!

We had to go see the Bird Guy on Waikiki Beach my last day

I came home to hail and blowing snow.  How I wished to go back to Hawaii, but I had to lead my normal life- which can be fun, too!  I worked the Wayne Brady concert the day after I got back.  He's a funny guy.

Kyrie got to be a Cougar Baseball Buddy

Isaiah scored his first career soccer goal

I worked the Mac Miller concert indoors on 4/20, and learned how bad it can be when a lot of people are puffing on the Magic Dragon inside- even when I was out in the outer concourse.

Yuki learned some new tricks including "waving"

Kyrie and Isaiah completed their AWANA year, and Isaiah got special awards for saying 32 verses plus their questions and answers by memory in one sitting, and doing all of the extra credit work in his book.

Jayden turned 6!

And that concludes April- which wore me out, so I'll make this a complete installment. ;)
