We wrapped up our trip on the Big Island with a night dive to see manta rays, Christmas celebrations and lots and lots of hugs and kisses from the family. The views had been spectacular and while we didn’t want to say goodbye we wanted to get a move on to our next destination of Oahu.

They got such a kick out of hanging out with the babies. Little hands and little feet just made them so happy and really it’s such a thrill to share something like that with them. Since I was the first born in my generation, there were always little babies around so when our little one came along it wasn’t too strange. For them though, having someone so small around is a new experience.

When we weren’t on boats, diving into the ocean or swimming we were spending time with our family having picnics, eating family dinners together every night and telling stories that we tell again and again. My grandmother sent me a cassette tape with Kermit the Frog singing some tunes for a road trip. This cassette tape was the music when we were young and in my grandmother’s car. We all knew every song by heart and when we get together it isn’t uncommon to suddenly have everyone break out into song. I managed to get the cassette onto my computer and put the songs on USBs for everyone because if we’re going to keep singing these songs, shouldn’t the next generation get in on it too?

Some things never get old.
