Aloha Hawaii

we're home. the flight home kinda sucked more because we had two stops instead of just one, but it was better since it was not a single nine hour flight from Chicago to Honolulu.

I'll be updating the pictures some time in the next day or two.

Sandy feet

I got sandy feet!! We were just swimming in the ocean. I can not remember the last time I did that. I know it was December 1980, but that is all I remember.

Here is the link to the photo album for the trip. It is not complete yet, but it is the first set of things I've got uploaded. Pictures from Yasuyuki (brother in law) & Rie's wedding will be in a separate album.

Heading to Hawaii tomorrow

Well, the airplane leaves at 07:00 tomorrow morning... I just checked the 7 day forecast for Honolulu and it's partly cloudy with a 30% chance for scattered rain every day I'll be there...

Yasuyuki's wedding is at 09:30 on Saturday morning and that is the only planned event of the trip.

See everyone when we get back.

Wedding Cake ordered

Yesterday we went to Patty Cakes (http://www.pat-t-cakes.com) in Highland and ordered our wedding cake. We started with the same heart design that was on the cake in Tokyo. Make sure you come to the reception to see it. Or you will have to wait for pictures here afterwards.

Skydiving pictures

Here are three pictures from Motoko's skydiving video.

I'm not allowed to post the video itself. :)

Back Porch Video

Here is some video taken during construction of the back porch on Sunday the 2nd and Monday the 3rd of September.

My helpers were my Dad & my brother in law.

Japanese Festival 2007

The Missouri Botanical Gardens held their annual Japanese on Labor day weekend as usual. Motoko & I went to it on Saturday morning. Here is some video that I recorded.

still no work

No new interviews yet. Had one two weeks ago, but it didn't pan out.

hopefully I'll find something sooner than later.

I'm getting a bit depressed about this.

Yeah I know I am a bad blogger, over a week and I haven't posted anything new...

Well this weekend I did get something decent accomplished around the house. The back porch I have been wanting to build every since I bought the house is now built.
