Raya 1st birthday celebration. We didn't have a big party for her but we did celebrate it with the family! Even my sister came!

Raya wearing the onesie that Olivia gave her especially to wear for her birthday!

Staring at her cake and candles as everyone sang to her.

Smiling and unsure on what to do with the candle and cake on her face.

I think Aaron ended up blowing out the candles for her ;)

Eating cake and ice cream for the first time! (well, the ice cream, not the cake)

Ended up taking her shirt off as she ate by herself.

I think she's done.

Thanks Aunty Pii for the shoes and custom made shirt!

Thanks guys for celebrating with us!

Aunty Pii made this blanket for Aaron when he would get into preschool. Aaron loves it!

What a nice smile! He was happy with his gifts!

Parts of Sept and Oct 2010 rewind

This was at a friend's birthday party. Aaron wearing his Cars sunglasses he just got

Raya showing off her new outfit from Aunty Olivia and my parents and the skirt we got her.

Raya also tried to take her diaper off a lot back then.

Here's a picture of Aaron and his weird poses! ;)

This was at the Trunk n Treat. Aaron was feeling sick.

Here's my little basketball with her bucket.

And here's Aaron who knocked out from not feeling well that night.

Instagram pictures from March 26 & 27

I took a bunch of pictures this weekend with my Instagram app. I love it.
Went a beautiful wedding reception on Saturday

David and I

David was trying to get Raya to smile for the camera. I love this picture.

I took this picture just as Raya moved her face closer

Aaron was making a funny face but I wanted him to smile, this is the face I got! Love it!

This was at church and Raya wanted to do her own thing.

I like this picture of the boys shoes.

Aaron drew a picture of him and David. (notice the eyebrows, shoes and hair? Hehe)

Raya's tattoo

This is what happens when you don't pay attention to your kids when they have a pen.
I did give her the pen so I am totally to blame. She just wanted to draw/write like her brother but I guess she got tired of the paper and figured her leg would be a better canvas!

She's covering it up in this picture but I love the smile!

She is already posing for the camera! What a ham!

Aaron the Artist

Last week during church, Aaron was drawing in his notebook that my mom gave him when she was here.
He said this was me and I asked where my hair was, he replies, " I forgot!" and drew my hair!

The picture below is one he said was David...

Notice the long legs and hair ;)

This is his self-portrait.

I guess he didn't have a chance to get to Raya. ;)

I was excited he drew hair! What a mommy comment ;P

GAR 2011

This was my first Great Aloha Run.
I was determined to run the whole way but the hills got to me and I had only trained to do 6 miles so far. But I walked for like 10 minutes or so and tried to run the rest of the way. Maybe it was more jog. But once I hit the road leading to the stadium, I picked up the pace a little. But the finish line is still far away!
This is me concentrating on making it to the finish line!

I was sooo tired at this point! Can you tell I was super tired at this point!?
I really should've listened to them and cheered when I made it to the finish line!

Once I crossed the finish line, you gotta exit all the way and I was met with another photographer. I did the Asian pose!

I finished it! I was so exhausted! Thanks Mailani and Hiilei for coming with me and especially mom Imi for taking us!

My time was 1:42:46 (pace 12:37) -
I came in #7931 overall out of 19,244 and in my division Females 25-29, I came in #686 out of 1569. 
Not too bad. Now I just need to keep up the running!
