Our pumpkins Posted by Picasa

For Halloween, Nan and I carved these pumpkins. I was trying to make a rabbit, but it came out looking like a cat.

People from a lot of different neighborhoods come to our neighborhood for Halloween because the streets are lighted and there's a lot of houses that you can walk up to. All the parking on our street was taken, and about 400 kids came by our house. Also there were a lot of older people trick or treating too. I think when you're pregnant, it's probably time to stop trick or treating.

Kauai Trip

Nan and I went to Kauai early October for the wedding of our friends Oliver and Uyen. This was the first time I'd been back in years, and the last few times had been with my Boy Scout troup to hike the Kalalau Trail.

Kauai was more even beautiful than I remembered it. Green valleys, sandy white beaches, hidden waterfalls, and good food!

Nan is at the end of her 23rd week of pregnancy in these photos.

In Limahuli Garden with original terraces for taro.

Terraces for taro, now filled in mostly. You can see a few patches of taro being grown--the dark green spots on the 4th-6th terraces.

There are feral chickens everywhere on Kauai. While we were in Kokee above Waimea Canyon, we saw this group of chicks who were so hungry, they were eating this cigarette.
