My Hawaii Trip


I will be going for a week long trip to the Big Island of Hawaii May 13.  I will be going with my Mom, my Sister, my Cousin, my two Sons, and the Love Of My Life. We will staying at the Mauna Kea Beach Resort.  It will be great because we haven't been anywhere in a long long time.

My older son Aman is happy they have a weight room so he can work out.  We will do lots of suntanning and swimming and even some sightseeing around the Big Island.

Of the hundreds of islands in the 1,500-mile Hawaiian Island chain, Hawaii, "the Big Island," is by far the biggest and most diverse. Larger than all the main islands-Oahu, Maui, Kauai, Molokai, Lānai, Kahoolawe and Niihau--put together, the Big Island covers more than 4,000 square miles and contains the sunniest spot in Hawaii, the rainiest and southernmost cities in the US and the tallest mountain in the world, Mauna Kea, 33,000 feet from the ocean floor to its summit. Geologically, the Island of Hawaii is the also youngest and is still growing, as the ongoing eruption of Kīlauea volcano continues to create new land.

I Had A Real Scare Today

Today I took my dog Peanut for a walk around our lagoon. I life in Alameda, CA and behind the house is a lagoon where across from my house there are lots of bushes. While I was walking Peanut got scared of a bicyclist and got out of her collar. Now this little dog is still a puppy and she loves to run. So as you can probably guess she had the whole lagoon to run around. I was very scared for I might lose her. She would come very close to me but then she ran off, kind of like teasing me. Even the bicyclist tried to help but to no avail. So I just started walking along the lagoon and Peanut ran up and down the bushes but she always came back. It was a very big scare for me for I love my puppy very much. Finally she came close enough to grab her and I gave her a big hug and held her all the rest of the way home. I have to check to make sure collar is tight enough but I dont want it to choke her.
