'Ohana and Hale

Aloha! Each day as I wrote my post, I so wanted to start the day with Aloha. I know most of the readers figured out that we were in Hawaii, some even remembered we always come to Kauai and that is where Val(my blogging buddy)lives. Last night we gathered with my cuz, aka cousin, and her family for dinner. Such a wonderful time! The first photo is of Mary Anne and her hubby Paul. I have to say, one more time, that Mary Anne has always been my favorite cousin. All of my cousins were between 6-15 yrs older than I am and Mary Anne always showered me with love when I was little while I stayed at my aunt and uncles house in San Francisco. She will always hold a very dear place in my heart. She is now 70 and in incredible shape~she plays tennis, golfs, travels and hikes on trails that I wouldn't venture on. Here hubby is the same age as my big brother and reminds us so much of Rich.
Mary Anne and Paul's youngest daughter Margo with her hubby of just two years.  What a great couple; she travels to Colorado on business, so we told her to come and stay with us.
Melanie and her hubby Bill in the background.  Bill did a wonderful job bbq'ing the fresh Ahi for tacos.
Here are some houses that we walk by when we are here-love them and would love to rent them.

WE had a great time here but looking forward to home.  It is supposed to rain here through next week, so I'm thankful there may be nice weather at home.  I say may be, because you never know in Colorado what you are going to get-one day might be in the 70's and then next it might be snowing.
Hui Hou~until we meet again.
