My attempted cake bites...

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

I was bored last night so I thought I'd try my hand at some cupcake bites. These are pretty much the same as my pops except I put the cupcake ball on top of a chocolate candy mold. Sounds easy right? UH WRONG! I once again forgot about how humid and hot my kitchen can get so dipping the stupid things in chocolate was a disaster. I don't think I'll be making these again anytime soon, so don't even ask. You hear that? NO, I will not make them for any baby showers or parties, bah mitzvahs, or will just make me grouchy because the stupid chocolate just does not want to cooperate. You may think they look ok, but look at the next picture and that is what it's supposed to look like. Then you'll understand why I'm so irritated.

The Bakerella lady is my idol. Don't know how she does it. >:(

Judy & Kenny

Kaimana Beach

Judy and Kenny flew in from California for a couple of days before they head off to China for a 6 week vacation (6 weeks!!! I'm so jealous!!!) Since they are here for such a short amount of time I was lucky to spend the day with them today...I would've took more pictures but it was sooo bright out there I didn't bother :|

This is Kenny's cousin Jake, he lives on Oahu
Kenny, Judy, Mary (Judy's mom), Jake, and Teresa
Great to see you guys! Hope we can get together again in December!! xoxo

Haunani, Austin and Jack...

Wednesday, May 25, 2011
Kakaako Park

My co-worker Haunani got the cutest puppy a couple of months ago and I practically begged her to let me get some pictures of him. Meet Jack. He's part Jack Russell and part Chihuahua (I think!!) haha. oops. I'm supposed to know this. Anyways, he's a total rascal and getting him to hold still was next to impossible. We were able to get a few good ones in there though!!

Although we were able to grab a few keepers, it was like this for most of the day....completely hilarious...

He's only 4 months, so he still has his puppy teeth. We all got a sample of that. I think Austin got the worst of it...
I love this picture of Haunani!
After all the group shots, it was finally time for his close-ups

Painting With Bea

Saturday, May 7, 2011
Ho'omaluhia Botanical Garden

My dad has always loved to paint. I think the gene stopped with him. Well, maybe my sister Pam has some artistic qualities but I sure don't have any! I'm really good at drawing stick figures and happy faces. Anyways, he's been taking an adult painting class and for the month of May the student's artwork is being displayed at Ho'omaluhia's lecture room gallery. Tonight was the opening reception...

This is his instructor, Bea Hunt
