Been behind on catching up on everyone's great photostreams these past few days due to a few reasons: 1) Back in Japan now, so was busy with the logistics of flying back with 4 weeks of luggage and family! 2) Got Swimmer's Ear (too much surfing!), so am on some *heavy* pain killers right now (forgive me if a comment I make doesn't make sense on anyone's pics over the next few days ;-)
Our Texas/Hawaii trip is all done now. The longest vacation we've ever had outside of Japan (4 weeks!). Gotta say, going back home to Texas with the whole family was somewhat of a religious/pilgrimage experience for me as it was a big deal for the boys to see/feel the other 1/2 of their heritage.
Hawaii was awesome as it always is. Been going there every year for about 20 years now and still as much fun every time (ex the Swimmers Ear this time!).
I still have a few pics to upload from the Hawaii portion of the trip and will drip them in over the next few days.
