Waimano Trail

I was in the mood for a easy hike that wasn't too exciting...Waimano Hike was perfect.
There in a upper trail and a lower.
The upper one is about 5 miles and takes you to the Koolau Summit.
The lower takes you along a stream...and....that's pretty much it.
We took the upper trail at first.
The only really interesting part of this whole hike (that we saw) were the tunnels.

There were quite a few of them. Your able to walk all the way through each one.
But don't let me fool you by standing in front of them....I did not walk through. 
One word: Spiderwebs!

 About 3 miles in, we decided to turn around and head home. 
We took the lower trail on the way back. with all the mosquito's.
 With all the rain we have been having, I was surprised the water wasn't flowing.
Nice hike for just a little exercise.
This would be a good one (if I ever come back here) that Bolo would be able to join.

Headed to the North Shore today to the famous town of Haleiwa. 
The Reef Surfing Competition is held there and it lasts for 12 days. 
Today was day 5.
 I was hoping to see some crazy waves today...but sad to say, it was kind of boring. 
There were very few waves to choose from.
This is just the start to surfing season, it will pick up a little later on. 
 The winner out of the 12 days takes home $40,000.
Nice prize if I do say so myself.

Also stopping by at Bonzi Beach...which had way better waves.
 I love seeing them start early. 
Fun little beach day.
It makes me want to get out there.

23 Weeks

Our baby girl is in her 6th month of development.
 I took this picture before work because I wanted to not look like a scrub in every. single. picture of me showing the bump. But then I realized it wasn't a very good outfit to display it.
So after work I got all scrubbed out and made Mike take this one.
She has been really active as of lately. Mike has now been able to feel her moving around when he touches my belly.
I went to the Dr. last week to hear her heart beat again, still nice and strong. She has been measuring right on track, even tho I still feel very small compared to other pregnant women at my stage.
Can anyone say Babymoon? Its in the works! 
My next Dr. appointment is at the end of the month. I'm having my Glucose test so hopefully that will be normal also.
Other then all that, it been pretty rainy on the island so there hasn't been too much fun stuff going on with me. Military Ball season is in full force so I have been spending a lot of extra time at work.

Marine Corps Ball

The Marine Corps is celebrating their 238th birthday on the 10th of November, but we had our ball this past Saturday.
This is the first year I didn't order my dress online, so I thought for sure I was going to have a twin.
 Luckily I was wrong.
The photographer took about 4 different poses for us, so I'm hoping there will be more online so I could get the other ones I like too. 
The guest speaker was a Infantry Colonel that had some great story's to tell.
Dinner was definitely up to par this year. The other years that we have attended, the Marine and his guest usually have one chicken plate and one steak plate. The loving wife that I am, Mike always got the steak.
This year they served each person the same meal...chicken AND steak!
I was happy!  (pregnancy talking)
Another great year!
