Living here on Oahu so far has been so much fun. What an exciting adventure for our little family this has been. I am constantly amazed by the beauty that surrounds us. Today we went to our favorite beach on the Island, Waimanalo. The water is beautiful shades of  turquoise, the sand is a completely different texture from any other beach I have been to, its so soft and white, and if you look really close it seems as if it made out of smooth tiny little shells. The white sandy beach is not over crowed with tourists as most of the island gems seem to be now a days. You can see out in the distance a few tiny little islands but if you come on a really clear day like today you can even see the soft outline of the Island Molokai. The water was so warm with no under tow I could have played in the waves all day. but as if  being surrounded with the wonderful atmosphere wasn't enough, Gabe was able to have part of the morning off and was able to join us here. The girls loved being able to play with their daddy in the sand. they built castles, chased crabs and buried London in the sand and just had so much fun.

Tea Party

I walked into Reagan's room to her playing in her tent. She was having a Tea Party with her stuffed animals and she said the friends Jerzie, Lulu, Eden and Brinlee from back in Utah were there. She had a tear run down her cheek. It just broke my heart. I feel so horrible that she had to leave her friends. I feel so bad that she misses them so much that she is pretending that they are here playing with her. Poor Reagan

Alligator Pond

 Alligator Pond is a fun beach with tide pools large enough to play in. and its so nice for the kids because the waves are blocked by the rocks. We had a lot of fun here.

Transit of Venus

Once in a Life time. What a neat thing to witness. The Transit of Venus  is, when the planet Venus appears as a small, dark disk moving across the face of the Sun.. Transits of Venus are among the rarest of predictable celestial phenomena and occurs in pairs, eight years apart, which are themselves separated by more than a century. The previous transit of Venus took place on 8 June 2004 (preceded by the pair of appearances on 9 December 1874 and 6 December 1882), and the next pair of transits will occur in December 2117 and in December 2125.
 We made a day of it. I heard that Waikiki was doing an exhibit on the beach and was giving out free shades used to look through to see Venus pass over the sun, we took them around with us all day. We went to the Zoo and then we  went to the beach and watched the progression of the planet all day. It was so neat to see people everywhere looking up into the sky.
