After nineteen years...

We are in front of the courthouse in Bridgeport where David and I were married nineteen years ago this September.

Strong guys!

On a excursion to Mono Basin from our cabin, we hiked into Panum Crater. It must be the mountain air, but boy can these guys lift rocks!

Another one gone!

Brennan lost his second front tooth gone.

Orange candle

We made a candle from an orange peel. It took a while to light, but once lit it was beautiful!

The ocean is so beautiful and the water is warm. But I don't have many pictures to share, since I don't want my iPhone exposed to the sand & salt water.

Record player

We all enjoyed the retro feel of using a real turntable to listen to old Hawaiian songs. Kelton thought the songs were too slow so he kept turning up the turn table speed.

Hiking day

Easter Day we hiked a bit above the Na Pali Coast. The views were astonishing ( the epic-ist according to Weston). Brennan loved the tropical look of the abundant ferns. We were all impressed with the beauty of Waimea Canyon.
