Made from.......

My kids are always interested in where things are made.

We've sadly neglected our hikes since the youngest was born but we are determined to get back into it. Upon hearing that we were going on a hike today our 3year old asked if we could take a walk after the hike. Which caused me and his sister to smile, she tried to help him understand that a hike was like a long walk. He was still determined to walk afterwards, so we told him we'd see what he thought after we were done. It was a beautiful day here. We went to an old favorite up in Aiea Heights, was reminded again that it was a holiday-I don't think I've ever seen so many cars there! The trail was very muddy, we got sprinkled on and rained on but had a good time.
Here is daddy dragging J3-I mean helping him-through the mud. I wasn't sure if it was a good thing J had his old shoes on or if it would have been easier on him if he had the new shoes that had a better grip to them.

I have to say J did so well. About the last 20min he got tired and we had to encourage him to walk but considering it took us 4 hours today and he's not use to it he did awesome!

I & I lead the group for most of today. This picture cracks me up as I caught I7 with his tongue out:D

the landscape

These flowers were some of my favorites to see dot the hill sides. There were some purple ones with berries that I loved also. It was so lush and green(and muddy!) so different from the area we live.

As we were finishing the Hike J3 decided that he didn't want to take a walk afterwards(snicker) although I fully expect him to ask again before bedtime!

a word about gecko's

Now if you visit us you might be surprised to see a gecko run across the wall. Soon you will grow to love the little critters as you realize how helpful and cute they are, you might even name one! That being said a word of warning about these little beings. My dear husband had a first last night, yes it involved one of these innocent little creatures. There he was sitting at the computer minding his own business. Hears the little guy calling to his friends when a few minutes later he feels something on his neck...hmm what could it be?? Looks up and there is a gecko right above his head. Anyone know if it's good luck to get pooped on by a gecko? I tried hard not to laugh as I don't want to be next to get hit but come on it is a bit funny yes?! and it only took us 4 years to happen:D although I'm not sure I'll be able to look at a gecko the same way now.
