Hale Koa luau









A trip to Hawaii is not complete unless you go to a luau. We went to one at the Hale Koa hotel which is on Waikiki Beach. The Hale Koa hotel is owned by the Army. The kids had so much fun watching the polynesian dancers and of course watching one of the locals climb the coconut tree. It was nice to be at a luau where they honor military members.

Backstage Mom



Kiely had the privilege of being casted as, Alice in "Alice in Wonderland". The Vacaville Ballet Company always does such a fabulous job on their productions. It was her last performance in Vacaville. I was a emotional wreck as I gave her one last hug for her final curtain call. I knew I would be emotional but I was not prepared for how sad I would really be. I have always helped backstage and loved being involved as much as I could in her ballet life. It has become a tradition for me to put on her eyelashes before every show. It was not a planned one but it just became one. Kiely has danced since the age of 3. It has been such a joy to watch her perform for so many years. It seems like I just took her to her first dance class. I am so proud of my girl!!!

Laie, Oahu Temple







We were able to attend church on Sunday at a near by meeting house. It was so fun to hear them say ALOHA from the pulpit. After sacrament meeting we went to walk around the Laie, Oahu temple. It is gorgeous with a fabulous view of the ocean.
