New Simon's Cat: Fly Guy

I love all of the Simon's Cat episodes. If you have a cat, you can relate.

I love this one - "Cat Man Do." The first time I saw this one I laughed so hard I cried.:

Are you a fan?

I am a terrible blogger! I go and create this thing to keep everyone updated, and then I never update it! Oy.

This has nothing to do with an update on our life, but I had to share.

I love Harry Potter, I really do. I've read all the books, and I am getting ready to re-read the series in anticipation for this summer's movie.

But I am not THIS big of a fan of the movie. Check it out - real-life Quidditch!

Our Pro Bowl Experience

Going to the Pro Bowl was one of those things that I never expected to be able to do. It's in Hawaii, after all, and when was I going to get a chance to go to Hawaii (and have enough time to spend at a football game while there). Well, lo and behold, here we are in Hawaii. Jim and I hemmed and hawed about getting tickets (the good seats were pricy, but better than regular NFL games). we kept talking ourselves out of it. Finally Jim said "let's do it", so we ordered our tickets, and managed to get really great seats, considering we ordered tickets the Tuesday before the game (we were on the 30 yard line, just past half way up on the lower level).

We had such a great time. It was really neat to see all these great players all in one spot, even if the game didn't really "matter." I spent a good amount of time trying to get good pictures of Payton Manning (as you can see if you check out the Picasa album)! Weather was perfect and we had a great time. We arrived super early so that we could get parking, and just to take the whole experience in. As we were walking around before the game we managed to come across the Bears' mascott, who was nice enough to take a picture with Jim (who was thrilled).

Wordless Wednesday: Waikiki Sunset

First Week Fun: Waimea Bay

From Wiamea Bay, Jan 2009

We can’t have all work and no play, right? Jim and I decided to take some of our time during our first week to be tourists.

The first out of town trip we made was up to Waimea Bay Beach Park on the North Shore, and the country town of Hale’iwa. We had lunch at Breakers in Hale’iwa, a yummy kalua pork sandwich. Not quite stuffed to the gills, we stopped for a shave ice at Aoki’s. Yummy stuff, but don’t get the large size unless you are super hungry! I highly recommend getting the shave ice with the ice cream on the bottom – some of that yummy syrup drips down through the ice and forms a nice topping on the ice cream.

Next we made our way to Waimea Bay Beach Park to see some of the legendary big winter waves. While the waves we saw probably weren’t of legendary size, they were pretty darn impressive. Lots of body surfers (experienced ones), tried their luck with the waves. Looked pretty brutal to me!

Here are some pictures from Waimea Bay, including the rainbow we saw as we left:
