Sunny Saturday Luau Fun!

The sun has been shining here all day and boy did we Gatchel's take advantage of it!  Grant cleaned out the garage (to make ample room for Sasha) the kids spent a good deal of the day outside, there was a trip to the park, a bike ride with Noah and I (that unfortunately ended in a crash that I will be feeling for the next week or so...) and then some luau fun with the Janoch's tonight.

We also finally opened our Hawaii mail.  The kids loved the postcards my Aunt and Uncle had sent, the vivid pictures made Hawaii that much more real for them, and the fact that they got to read about what Aunt Mary Anne and Uncle Bill were doing (swimming with sea turtles and seeing volcanoes!) was even better.  The latest information I have is that Aunt Mary Anne is awake and stable.  I'm not sure what the plan to get to her is at this point, but she has been able to talk to Uncle Bill and they are trying to set up a time for her to talk to my cousins.  Continued prayers are so appreciated!

Hope that however you spent your Saturday it was just as enjoyable.  Hoping for more sunshine tomorrow!  Until then...

Hawaii Fun Fact of the Day:  The Hawaiian Archipelago consists of over 130 scattered points of land stretching some 1,600 miles in length from the Kure Atoll in the north to the Island of Hawaii in the south.

Hawaiian Buttermilk pancakes anyone?

Had to have Hawaiian punch at our luau tonight

Tess made my favorite - white chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies with cranberries! They were outstanding!
