So now that is out of the way, I have to share our fab weekend. Living in Hawaii we are very lucky that friends and family always want to visit here. Since we have been here we have had at least one friend or family here every month. This weekend my son's football coach from the mainland was here on business. Luckily we to spend one evening with him and his family. My son was ecstatic to visit with him. We also had a great night out on Friday and a winning Saturday at my son's wrestling meet. The weather was gorgeous. Now, if the Lakers win our house will be in heaven!
