Let’s-a-go!

Let’s-a-go!

Recently, my sister came home to visit from Cleveland, Ohio. Since we only see her maybe a few times a year, we decided to go on a sibling trip to Tokyo, Japan! This was our first ever sibling trip and what fun we had. Sara-Anne read somewhere that you could ride go-karts in costume on the streets of Tokyo and that was our main priority during our trip. I must say, after spending a few hours on these four wheeled…

Hello? Is This Thing On?

Hello? Is This Thing On?

So 2018 has arrived and it feels like it’s been forever since I’ve been on here (actually it’s been around 10 months since my last post so basically forever). What’s been going on in the world since we’ve last talked? We’ve been on lots of adventures both big and small and we’ve eaten tons of really great food. Hopefully in the upcoming months, I’ll be able to share with you some glimpses of the great year that was 2017. Last…

A Magical Experience

A Magical Experience

After spending a few days with Keao in Los Angeles, the very next week I headed in the opposite direction. My brother was meeting up with his friend Bryan in Japan and they were staying with our friend Gabe so I decided to crash their little party and visit the motherland. To be completely honest, one of the biggest reasons I had for going was the opportunity to hit up Universal Studios Japan, home of the Wizarding World of Harry…

Hooray for Hollywood!

Hooray for Hollywood!

Last month, Keao and I had a few days free so we hopped on a redeye to visit beautiful Los Angeles. I read about a two-hour tour of the Warner Bros. studio that included some glimpses backstage of some of Keao’s favorite shows and so after a quick five-hour flight on Hawaiian Airlines, we grabbed a car and headed toward Hollywood! This may sound silly, but up until the tour, I didn’t realize that there were actually a group of…

It Was 20 Years Ago Today!

It Was 20 Years Ago Today!

Well, not exactly today, but sometime around this time anyway.  20 years ago, I graduated from high school.  Frankly, it doesn’t seem like 20 years has passed since I was in high school, but the numbers truly don’t lie.  Actually, being that it took me almost 18 to get to that point, the first 18 seemed much longer than the last 20.  I guess it is true that time speeds up the older you get.  Heck, can you believe we’re…

Four Parks in Three Days

Happy New Year everyone!  I know, I know.  We’re practically halfway through the year and this is my first post of the year.  Don’t worry, I made a resolution to blog more consistently this year and you have to start somewhere right? So, what happened over the last few months?  In one word: plenty!  I’ll try to fill you in as time permits, but tonight we’re talking about the trip we took in February.  Last year sometime, my parents thought…

Regrets, I’ve Had A Few

Regrets, I’ve Had A Few

When I was a senior in high school, I tried out for the varsity baseball team. Despite not having played any kind of organized baseball since Little League, I figured I was a good enough athlete to make a go at it. When the day of the tryout arrived, I stared nervously at the other students that were trying out as well.  Many of them had played baseball for a while and looking around, clearly I was at a disadvantage. …

2011: A Year in Review, part 1

2011: A Year in Review, part 1

Happy New Year! Whew, I can’t believe how quickly 2011 passed. It seems like it went by in such a hurry. Well, here we are in 2012 and I know I missed a whole bunch of blogging in 2011 so here’s a quick year in review. 2011 was a year of many firsts for us. We got to see many new things and experience many new experiences individually and as a family. Here are a few of my favorites. One…

Baseball: the great American pastime. Living in Hawaii, it’s rare that I get to go to any professional games, but last night, I found myself in the Sapporo Dome cheering on the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters with a bunch of crazy Japanese fans. I believe that the season is about ready to end and I’m not sure where the Fighters are in the standings but the stands were about half-full and that could have been because it was a Wednesday…
