Isaiah's 13th birthday 2009
Photos by dee photography

We ate fresh Waimea strawberries, thanks to Nancy, fresh salad from the Ko's farm, pizza(Isaiah's favorite)tender rotisserie chicken, from Noelle, potato salad, and two kinds of cheese cake, New York style which took 7 hours, and a lovely little cheese cake that took 10 min. to make, then 3 hours in the fridge haha!
Oh, and adult guests enjoyed two kinds of home made wine from the famous Claudia Riley.

Isaiah got to show off the potato cannon he built himself. The cannon works well, especially if you like your potatoes to be flaming, and loud. He also let off a few fireworks. The young guests swam till late at night, and then had a sleepover.

Ke Ola Farm

The Ko Family at the Farmer's Market June 2009 taken with my BlackBerry

I love the Kos. I admire the way they work together, and though life is not perfect,and there are hardships, they continue on, and persevere courageously. They are pioneers in aquaponic farming.

The Ko family farm is now up,running, and open for business!
They are Ke Ola Farm.
They grow exotic lettuce, herbs, green beans, squash, and the best cucumbers I ever ate in my life! They are still expanding, so there will be much more to come.

Onomea Bay

Onomea Bay 2009 taken with my BlackBerry

I took my cousins who were visiting from Kentucky on a tour of the island, and stopped here briefly.
My Sony cyber-shot is acting up(like sometimes it will take pictures, and sometimes it decides to go on vacation) so I have more fun just using my BlackBerry. I have had the BlackBerry for about three months now. It is so useful for real estate, and also has all the fun stuff. I don't play games on it, but it has the entire Bible in, I think, 14 English versions, plus the daily reading, plus 22 other languages, AND a concordance!(You Version)
I know the iphone is so popular right now, but I tried typing on it, and it was just too weird. I kept pushing the wrong keys. The BlackBerry key pad is way better in my humble opinion.

Honolii Beach

First waves for Isaiah 2009

seventy times seven
more than the pebbles at Honolii
more than I can on my own
I could,maybe once
then I give up
My Higher Power must take over
it is a miracle to wake up
to open my eyes
it is a miracle just to be alive
to get up
to breathe
