Finally!

Yes I know it has been 3 weeks since I blogged and since then my mom came to visit. We mainly used her camera to take pics and she asked me not to post anything until I got her pics (they are better) but sorry Mom...I have to put something up!! She was here for a week and it was so much fun. Was there anything we didn't do?? These are from the zoo...there are peacocks running around and we made the mistake of feeding one and it got way too close. After these were taken Melia tried to hit it away from her then hid behind me.
Let's see...we went to Ko Olina Resort a few times while Mom was here. We went to Dole Plantation and went on the train ride and then to North Shore. We went to North Shore a few times. We headed up there Labor Day and went to a few beaches. Ok so I have to tell this story. My mom has the pics of this amazing beach so I hope I get them soon. We went over to Kailua where the sand is like a baby's blanket...awesome! Well it reminded me of Fiji...just beautiful. Anyway we see a helicopter coming our way and it is hovering right above us. Melia starts to wave so we all do! it looks like they are waving back. So then some lifeguards on jet skis are zipping around the water kicking everyone out of the water. I thought they might be looking for a missing person. So Dan and I had been not super far out in the water but out to where it got deep. We get out after seeing everyone else get out. Come to find out those nice men in the helicopter were looking for a 10 foot tiger shark that was spotted!! I was wondering after that though...what were they going to do if they found it? Ask it kindly to please swim elsewhere b/c it is bothering tourists??
Aahh yes our night walks...Melia loves to take a morning walk and evening to visit the neighborhood cats. I have no pics of our fav...her name is Precious and I she is actually the most beautiful cat I have ever seen. Sorry, Sasha, I think she might have you beat! So the house in the above pic is where Winston, the Brit, lives along with Sir Albert and their Indian friend Fazzel. Did we make those names up? Yes b/c that is what we do! melia is obsessed with cats and loves to visit them and meow at them. She collects flowers along the way just to give to them as an offering. So sweet!
This pic is for you Mom...a glimpse of the alleys here. My mom couldn't get over how nice our alleys are!! I will have to take more pics so everyone can see the beauty! Actually they are really nice!!
