Papa Mele

Owen and I have been taking music class this summer. We had a concert last week. Here's Owen playing the ʻili, the split bamboo sticks.

Ah Mah and Ah Gu's visit

Wow, it been awhile since we've posted. We've certainly with busy with visitors. And now that summer school is in full swing, mommy has been super busy teaching her class. Owen has started swim class again and I'm loving the water play Wednesdays at school.

Let's backtrack a bit. A few weeks ago, Ah Mah and Ah Gu came to visit us! And we all went to the Big Island for some R & R. Here are some pictures to highlight our trip.

Horseback Riding in Waimea
The big highlight of our trip was horseback riding! I was rode on BJ and Owen rode on Rosie in Waimea.

We had so much fun on the Big Island. Owen keeps asking mommy and daddy when we'll get to go back again. Ah Mah and Ah Gu stayed a few more days at our house -- long enough for us to take them around to our favorite good eats. Daddy and Ah Gu hiked up Mariner's Ridge to burn off those extra calories. Until mommy gets her surgery to fix her knee, she has to babysit us instead of going on crazy hikes.

Thanks for coming to visit us, Ah Mah and Ah Gu. We miss you already!
