The truth as I know it:

We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life. But those who make their journey home across time & miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny and placed among us by God's very own hands. ~~~ Kristi Larson

We're "with the crew" now

So, yesterday, they filmed Episode 7 of Hawaii Five-O right on our street.  They were filming at a house down the street from us, but their stuff was spread from one end of the street to another.  It was really neat. The Amazing Amy stayed out there watching for a good part of the afternoon.  And guess what, she gave a boy her phone number.  And he gave her his "Camera Crew" shirt.  How cool is that?  Alex O'Loughlin took a photo with Amy and Meg.  It turned out blurry, but still, it's proof that he's a nice guy.  And he even looks friendly in the photo, doesn't he?

It sort of cracks me up that a "big budget" TV production would have this dinky little sign on a piece of typing paper to alert folks that they have to go to a different bus stop.  This sign is what initially clued us in to the fact that they were filming on our street. 

This is at the filming site, Connor and Meg were just taking refuge from a little afternoon sprinkle.

On other fronts, we have another Harrison living with us in Hawaii.  Seriously, you didn't think I could go a very long time without a pet did you?  Actually, this is Amazing Amy's pet, but she is sharing her with us.  Her name is Hokulani (hoe-koo-la-knee), which means "Star from Heaven."  She's pretty friendly as bunnies go (though most of them aren't big on being held and she's no exception.)  The kids are having alot of fun with her.  It was SOOOOO hard for me.  We went to the Humane Association and I wanted to leave there with about ten of the animals.  But I'm trying to keep it simple here, so a bunny that we can share with Amazing Amy is probably just the right ticket.  Hokulani is sitting in my lap right now as I type this and she's the cutest dang flop eared calico colored bunny you've ever seen.

My dad reports that Vince has loved rides in the back of the pick-up and that he is a true farm dog now... you know, the kind that will sit in the truck and wait for you while you go into a store and get a cold drink.  I never thought I'd see the day, but they could actually do a show about my dad and dogs, he's a regular Cesar Milan.

Sorry I don't have any great photos of sea turtles or other Hawaiian life, we have settled in to the extent that laundry and dishes have kicked in.  Regular life happens, even in paradise! :)  But the boys are on fall break next week and we will be exploring quite a bit so I should have some more exciting adventures to report.

Okay, I'm boring myself to tears.  Hope you are all having a FABULOUS Thursday.

Great post. I don't comment much but I love reading your blog. I lived in Hawaii from 4th through 6th grade at Barber's Point! I loved living there. It was such an amazing experience.

Love that you got to meet one of the stars of Hawaii 5-0 (it is actually a very good show.

Best wishes to you in Hawaii!
