|After this we all went back to our house for dessert ... and a long nap. Even splitting up the leftovers we will still probably get a couple days' worth of meals from it!|

|Ceramic figurines of a wedding party, as gifts to that wedding party, over a thousand years old.|
Outside of how amazing the artworks are in their own regard, we particularly appreciate the MIA for helping us present and talk about Wynn's birth culture in a wonderful way. If we lived anywhere else in the U.S. we simply couldn't do this.

|Today was U.N.'s annual Hawaiian culture festival; they had local dancers going for much of the day, plus special island-authentic foods at the deli. We needed a few ingredients from the store anyway so Wynn and I went over to check it out.|
|Quite the crowd! In fact I've never been there when so many people are in the store. And all eating and buying things - it's great publicity for sure but it's even better for community-building.|
Wynn was fascinated by the dancers; no surprise with that!
|We know the owner of the store, too. What a whopping big rice cooker he's using!|
|Wynn got her lei from the store owner's mom, and showed off some of the moves she picked up!|
