We haven't really done too many "touristy" type things since we moved to Hawaii. We've been focusing on trying to get everything in order - house, car, Blake's job - before the baby comes. The one thing that we have done was to visit the Polynesian Cultural Center. We went with Nick and Christina Clemmer - who we knew when we were at Fort Leonard Wood.

Jacob loved the shows. Just sat and stared at the performers the whole time.

Our dinner!! It was soooooo good!
There was a coconut dessert and Jacob DID NOT like it.

Living in Hawaii has its advantages. You make new friends. Like this gecko that came into our house. We have another one that lives behind the light on our front porch. We see him every night.

We've been wanting to get a fish tank for a while and couldn't resist when we saw a tank kit for a reasonable price.
Ready to go . . . no fish yet.

This last Saturday there was a ward potluck/beach trip. It was so fun!

We've loved being here so far! Our ward is very friendly and we have callings already! I am the Relief Society Pianist and the Co-Organist and Blake is the Gospel Principles teacher.
Blake likes his job at work. He is an engineering officer but they didn't have room for him in the Engineering Company so he is working as the Battalion Maintenance Officer in the Motor Pool. Usually a warrent officer does that job but until this last Friday they didn't have one so Blake has been learning the ropes. When they got a warrent officer, Blake was told that he would be staying on and continuing to learn that job. We don't know when he'll end up going somewhere else, but it will be a learning experience.

You all look so beautiful. We have been craving to see your faces. Sounds like you are having a wonderful time and settling in. Only a few more days and we will have another face to gaze upon.
We love you so much, Mom
