Great Aloha Run

My first time running the Great Aloha Run! 25,000 people, 8.15 miles from the Aloha Tower to the Aloha Stadium. I ran with my friend Micaela because Zui's too fast for me.We bought matching outfits for the run (I know, I'm cheesy)
TONS of people. Would you believe we didn't even cross the START line for a half hour after the race started?? Just waiting for the mobs of people to move in front of us. We didn't even pass the walkers until mile 4 or so. Next year we will come earlier so we can get a better line up.

We did it! Micaela and I finished in 1 hr 30 min and Zui in 1 hr 10 min. I came in 6,427th! Not bad!A fun goal, I'm glad I did it. Maybe next year I'll be fast enough to run with Zui! lol ;)

Happy Valentine's Day

The kids had a great Valentine's day. Zui and I did some quick decorations and surprised the kids with a few candies and...Lucky Charms! They loved having special sugar cereal :)Later that day Anjuli and Zion dressed up to get married. Love is in the air!
My baby girl is 9 months old today! Jazzy has grown up so much lately. She loves to put everything in her mouth--I really have to vacuum more :)

She LOVES climbing the stairs
and unfortunately has just discovered...the toilet! Aak! Super fun age, sure love my Jazzy girl.

Happy Anniversary!

Well we've finally hit the big one--SIX years of marriage! Okay, so maybe it's not that many, but something about 4 kids makes me feel like we've been married forever ;) I took some time to look at some pics of that day not too long ago.

I was SO excited to be married to my man!

Now, 6 years later I am still so happily married. Zui was full of surprises this anniversary. 5 days before our anniversary he wrote me a poem each day. One day the poem ordered me to change into my swing clothes (that he had laid out). When I came into the house I was shocked--he had transformed our living room into a dance studio! We spent the night swing dancing away, then ate icecream just like the good ol' days.

We had 2 babysitters lined up for our one night getaway. My good friend Micaela took the 3 older and Lindsey had baby Jaz. The first thing we did was hike stairway to heaven. It's like being on a stairmaster forever (about 2 hours), but with great views!

It's hard to tell, but this is a huge cliff.

The view from the top was A-mazing. You could almost see the entire island, it was such a beautiful clear day.

By the time we got down we were both famished. We headed to Zui's favorite Korean restaurant--Camelia's. All you can eat meat cooked fresh right on your grill, it doesn't get much better than this.

On Saturday all we wanted to do was relax, so we slept in, had a huge complimentary breakfast at the hotel, took a 3 hour nap, then picked up our kids. It felt so great to sleep! We capped off our getaway with a short date out to DQ for waffle bowl sundaes(thanks Joy!).
What a great night away! So glad to be married to my true love, it was definitely the best decision I've ever made. Sure love ya Babes!
