So many visitors, so little time!

So I have a ton of pictures and stuff from the Robinson's visit over the New Year's.

I had so much fun while they were in town, I can't even express it. I wish you all could see the dance I am doing right explains it all ;) Maybe Renae can show you sometime...I wish I could get the videotape from that elevator camera haha. The list of activities for their trip was ever changing and somehow never seemed to get any smaller, there is just so much to do and so little time! We did however manage to squeeze a lot into 2 weeks, including but not limited to-Parasailing, Sealife Park, North Shore waves, Pearl Harbor, swap meet, picnics, sunset catamaran ride, Maunawili falls and Diamond Head hikes, BEACHES, shaved ice, fireworks, ocean, and LOTS of food :) Here are some pics of the fun!

Thanks so much for everything while you guys were here, I am so spoiled to have such an amazing family! Love you guys and cant wait to see you all again soon!

Hikin', eatin', ballin', jumpin'...the usuals!

I know it has been a long time since I updated this...seems to be a trend haha. Sorry I am such a slacker. Anywho there has been a lot going on. I started back to work on the 14th of January after almost a month off for Winter Break! I worked for 2 days then school got cancelled on Friday because they were predicting a huge storm. Thursday night I hiked Koko Head with Kat, Tom, and Jon. It is 1106 stairs to the top!! Let's just say I almost passed out when I got to the top but I did it! :) Well by the time we got to the top it was totally dark...good thing the baseball field at the bottom had its lights on so it wasn't too bad and we all made it down safe and sound!

The next morning since I had the day off I had some yummy coconut pancakes at the Seaside Grill, courtesy of Jon for finishing the hike, then hung out in my apartment waiting for the 'huge' storm to hit...but it never did! Monday was Martin Luther King day so we hit up the secret swimming hole! It is just off the Pali highway and has a rope swing, rock slide, and cliff jumping :)

The next weekend was Chinese New Year so Christine and I went to the block party in Chinatown. Welcome Year of the Ox everyone! They had tons of yummy food booths, Lion dancing, and a parade. We had a good time and got out just in time, it was getting so crowed you could barely walk down the street!

Lion Dance

Jin Dui- Chinese doughnut AKA Grease ball! I could only eat a few bites haha

Later that night Kat and I went to the Utah State vs. University of Hawaii basketball game, sporting our 'Show em' you A' shirt of course and the Aggies dominated!! "Show me the true blooded Aggie from Utah who doesn't love the spot where the sage brush grows!!!" (milking motion with the arms ;)) Sorry Hiram...we still cheered for you while you were in!

This past weekend I went to see the reggae group A'a Mele play at The Shack in Waikiki. Good music and good dancing=good times. Then on Saturday I went skydiving!!! We went up on the North Shore and it was B-E-A-U-tiful!! I can't believe I actually did was so surreal!

I love you all and miss you everyday. I can't wait for Kim to come tomorrow!!!
