Wicked and Pre-Christmas 2012

Last weekend we made a very bold decision to take our entire family to see "Wicked" at the Blaisdell Concert Hall in Honolulu.  Other than approximately 40 minutes during which Finn remembered that he was a two-year-old, the show was quite enjoyable.  Afterwards, we ventured Downtown to visit the Honolulu City Lights festivities:
Shaka Santa and Mrs. Shaka

Snow Family, one eating shave this cannibalistic (or perhaps snowballistic)?
 Ocean-themed tree
 Everyone knows that reindeer need boards to make deliveries into Hawaii. 
Finn and the Menehune Train.
Wicked!!!  Finn Kept telling us that the dragon body above the stage was "naughty".

 Kindergarten crafts.                                               Shaka Grinch and Santa at the Pearl City Library.

BillabongTriple Crown of Surf Pipe Masters

Surf was 8-12 feet at Pipeline, so off we headed to watch the last event in the Triple Crown Surf Competition.
While Boe and Finn scoped out a parking spot, K did some shaka posing.


Spectators keeping their distance from Pipeline's dangerous shorebreak.

Finn was clearly more interested in sand treasures.

K and Finn making friends.  Little did the new friend's mom know that once she gave Finn a Dorito, he would not leave her alone for the remainder of our stay.

K ran into one of her long lost friends from Laie.

Totally unaware of the sand they were kicking up onto the people around us.
Zoom in...there is a surfer on the wave...I promise...
(we really weren't that far away, the picture is deceiving)

The end...yes, I know my dress is totally off for a surfing competition, but at 34 weeks pregnant,  I tend to go for comfort).

Birthday girl-Five!!!

Our sometimes sweet baby girl is five! She is going through a Jessie the Cowgirl phase, hence the boots and other Jessie paraphernalia.
We love her sometimes pleasant demeanor and occasional displays of being a helpful big sister. She loves to draw and always burns through the pink crayons first (if Finn doesn't first chew them to smithereens).
Other mentionables:
She is learning to dance hula, would be at the pool every day if we let her, fav song is Katy Perry's 'Firework', loves Korean-flavored seaweed.
Happy Birthday KK!

Honolulu Zoo

Our trip to the Zoo lady week. My favorites are:
-Finn and the baboon trying to figure each other out
-Finn sneaking through the fence as I take a pic of the giraffes
-Finn using The Force to summon the fish
-KK looking so natural in the cactus she should
-KK flashing the Shaka at the Zoo entrance
