Hanalei Moon - a very special song

video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NeHZ1ySVWiY

I wanted to share this video clip I took at the baby shower for my new nephew Hanalei...his mommy Charme' is singing and his grandma Val is dancing. Back up band includes his uncle Wayne and some friends that play in a local band here.

This song is really special to Charme as she remembers from a very young age her momma dancing hula to it. Now it's the name of her new born son..my little nephew :)

Super Cool Bugs in my Yard

We found some really cool bugs in our yard last week..first this lady bug. I wish I got better pics of it..thought I had the camera set on macro but in fact had turned macro off. Plus she was bookin' it so fast it was hard to capture her. She was orange w/ lots of spots...




And then this guy was amazing. We mostly see the green stink bugs here..and I found a brown one the other day..but this guy was really beautiful. He actually sparkled like he was irridescent w/ a turquoise and green. The turquoise didn't show up in the pics..but you can kinda see the sparkle.



I was so amazed to see the red on this little guy. I never knew they were so colorful. I guess he can come in lots of colors and is actually called a Pentatomidae
