Just a little something about myself. I love my family. I enjoy genealogy, archaeology, history and my family. I love people. I love Hawaii. Here is just an excerpt of my life and activities:
April 18, 2008, Friday, I, went to Kona, HI for the 95th Anniversary Ahahui Kaahumanu Kona Chapter. I learned that my cousin, Patricia Kimura Lewi, is the Pelekikena for the Waimea Chapter. Her mother's father and my grandma Tsugi are brother & sister. My sister Lei, nephew Samson Kalani and I went up Kona to pick lehua, etc. for my lei po`o to wear @ our Ahahui dinner @ Royal Kona Resort. We later ventured to Pu`uhonua `o Honaunau -the House of Lono were having their ceremonies -wanted to find where our Ahahui paina for Saturday lunch was to be held. My sister Lei, my niece Pomai and nephew Samson Kalani relaxed on the lava rocks at the shoreline @ the sea. The rocks were warm and the ocean refreshing. Yes, the vog was apparent but did not seem to harm my asthma any. It was so beautiful and relaxing. That night I went to dinner @ the Alii Room in the Royal Kona Resort. Saturday, Pomai and I went to paina Pu`uhonua `o Honaunau. There was all the fixings of a luau, entertainment, bazaar, guest speakers -it was wonderful. Sunday the 20th we had an early morning Continental Brunch @ the Royal Kona Hotel, picture taking and Mokuaikaua Church service for our Ahahui. It was my 1st time @ Kona chapel LDS, stake conference.

Sunday, sacrament in Kapaa. Meet up with Christina for Kaiakea's LUA ceremony & potluck in Waimea. Great ceremony & lots of food. Went back to Kapaa for a swim in the pool back @ the resort with Kaiakea, Christina &
Gavin. Janie & I had to get our fill of Hamura's to top the night!
