I made it to Japan! So far, I am absolutely loving every part about Japan. I love the people, food, culture, beauty, safe, and how clean it is! So far, I have been to Tokyo Disney Sea(sort of like California Adventures), hiked in Kawasaki, biked to Odaiba, been to the beach, shopped, and much more! I love going to the park that is right next to our house and just enjoying watching the turtles and taking in the beauty of it all. My mom has been away now for about a month and comes home this week and I am SO excited to go on more adventures with her, which automatically includes shopping! I love being with my mom because we always have a great time! Being here with my dad has also been really fun because every weekend he makes me go somewhere with him and most of the time I have not been there. Besides him falling asleep at 9 o'clock every night, I love being able to have our daddy-daughter time!

At Disney Sea with some friends and had a blast!

I absolutely am loving it here! I definitely need to take advantage while being here and need to try and see as much as I possibly can while I am here!

8 days full of siblings

My blog was not working in the end of being in Hawaii so I was not able to make any new posts! I apologize for that! After Hawaii I went to Utah for 8 days to stay with my siblings before I left for Japan. This week so beyond fun; I love hanging out with my brothers and their wives. It is never a dull moment with them! And did I mention I got to see my baby(my dog, Lulu)! I had tons of fun with Ariana while staying at her house. We never fail to eat too much food and do just about nothing! I am so proud of her as well for getting her new job! She goes camping every other week with people up in the mountains(I cannot remember what it is called). Then, I have my other sister-in-law Jackie! She does my hair, we eat great food, and it is never a dull moment. I can honestly say that I am the luckiest girl to have such amazing sister-in-laws.

My sisters Jackie and Ariana. I know what you are thinking, they are gorgeous!

And last, but not least, Lulu! She may not be the most photogenic dog, but she is still adorable!

Being in Utah with my family is always a blast. I love being able to spend time with them and do such fun activities. I cannot wait to see them when we go to Georgia for our family vacation in August!

Let's see if I can actually do this!

Keikes, North Shore Oahu
So I am attempting to start a blog of my life and the adventures I go through. I am the opposite of technology savy, so let's just give it a whirl! I have about three more weeks left here in Hawaii for my winter semester. It has been such a great semester! I have done a few adventurous things while I have been here on Oahu. Yes, I did get hurt in almost all of those activities. But, besides all my injuries, doctors appointments, I have loved every minute of it. From just basking in the sun getting bronzed to swimming to China Man's Hat and hiking(and climbing) to the top. Luckily, there was only one emergency room visit for me and that was the first weekend here from a concussion off roading.
 Did I mention I did a shark tank adventure?? This is probably the only adventure I went through without getting hurt! Amazing right? It actually was not as scary as I thought it was going to be! When I first saw the sharks come, I began to freak out and not want to get in the water. I eventually got over my shark fear and got in the tank. On our way out to the place where we park the boat to get into the tanks, we saw whales and dolphins! It was awesome! The captain said that really never happens, you either get dolphins or sharks. So I thought that was amazing! 
Brent and Wendy came to Oahu from Tokyo! My parents came to the island, although they stayed on the other side in Ko'Olina. It was so good to see them and spend some time with them. They met some of their good friends Abbie and Jim here and it was so good to see them too! This little week teezer just got me so much more excited to spend a whole summer with them back home in Tokyo(YES, home). My parents moved to Tokyo, Japan this summer. Cool huh? I sure think so. So I need to take advantage of them being there while they are still living there!
