Last Days: PROJECT RUN AWAY TO HAWAII
Early this morning, Jase went to turtle bay to surf with Matty Raynor. Jase really enjoyed some much needed surf time. I got to sit and watch and take some fun pics of him catching some great waves.
While Jase trained and worked, I got to spend a lot of time alone. Its quite odd being alone when usually you have at least 3 – 6 attachments. I went to Hukilau beach and hung out. I did a little workout, I listened to scriptures, talks, books on tape. Mostly I enjoyed the sound of the waves uninterrupted.
I had to take some pics of the places around town for the kids. This is Kahuku Intermediate and High School.
Laie Elementary. All 3 big kids went here for many years. We enjoyed so much at this school.
Heres the playground at the elementary. For many years they had a broken down playground, where the bridge was slowly rusting away and the slides were cracked. They got this playground when Klai was in 2nd grade.
The beautiful Laie LDS temple. It is so beautiful inside and out. We love to visit the temple to find peace and answers to our prayers. Jase served in the temple for many years, I think 7-8 years. What a blessing to have, so close to home. Now that we have moved to the mainland, the closest temple is 35 minutes away…not bad, but Laie was less than 5.
I of course visited the Hydes….many many times. Montana was just a pup a few years ago and loved to play with Rusty. She is the best Fetch dog.
But The best picture that describes life in Hawaii are these chickens. Most days we would see a chicken and her chicks crossing the road or finding a place to hide in the bushes.
And No trip would be complete without a girls night Karaoke! Of course the theme was women of the 80’s…and I was Cher!
This last few days in Hawaii were spent with good friends. I had to have a lunch with Jen, singlemom wives in Jaseboards and Yardsale buddies. She’s a great woman!
Another Hyde visit, the kids were making fun gifts for our kids. Emma making shrinky dinks and Naleo showing off his Lego computer. Genius….these kids are Geniuses!
We even stalked our old Moana street house. We planted these palm trees years ago being only 3 ft tall.
The perfect palm tree across the street from our dream bed and breakfast.
Our last meal on the island was spent at Ted’s. Shrimp, and chocolate Haupia pie.
Life is complete.
