From Aiki

Well, not really from Aiki, but I figured he's gonna be too busy to post pics of what he's been up to, so I thought I would post them for him.
These first pics are from a beach event he went to last Sunday with Steve and a friend of ours. From what I can understand, these surfers come early in the morning, surf, then they clean the beach and get a free barbecue. Anyways, I didn't go, so I don't know too much of what happened, though it seemed to be pretty fun.
It seems there wasn't too many waves that morning, so they did a little sand boarding...
In this first pic, I think Aiki is laughing at the terribly funny way that Steve jumped on his board..

So Aiki decides to show him how its done

And Steve goes for it..
And Aiki moves the board away..haha
Poor Steve...

And here's a classic shot. Apparently, the guys had a little long jump competition going on, and I just had to post this pic of Steve going for it...epic...Surfer and ?...
Stever, teaching Aiki "how it's done"
And here's some photos of the JTB/FDTP team...
Hard at work...
The happy happy group


Well, it's that time...again. FDTP planning meetings are underway, and although Aiki is around (the meetings are being held here)...he's not really around, if you get what I mean. And all my kids are growing older. Katie is in the "wanting to do my own thing" stage and doesn't willingly obey anymore, and Kristy is just an all-round rascal going through the "no" stage. Whenever we are in the dining room she runs away and tries to get in the shower room, kitchen, or she will try and climb the stairs up to stage. Or, if she does stay in the dining room, she will, without fail, remove all the flowers from the vase on the low coffee table in the visitor area. Aaand, if I don't get to her soon enough, she will start eating them. So..yeah..pretty exciting. And Kimberly is getting older as well. Her fussy times are perfectly timed for nap time and night time (right after the kids go down, 9-12 at night woo-hoo!). So, no rest for the wicked...And Katie STILL isn't potty trained. If she is bored, sometimes she will ask to go on the potty and she usually pees, but she doesn't tell us on a regular basis...oh well, I guess she'll get it when she gets it. Aiki does this thing with Katie at night when he puts her on the potty; he pretends to make a cake with her and has a whole pretend eating party with her, naming all of her favorite foods and pretending to cook them and eat them. So, now, every time she goes on the potty before bed she'll do this whole "baking a purple hippo cake and putting it in the oven"'s pretty funny. So, here are some fairly recent pics...Joan is so proud of them..haha

Happy Birthday to the best brother (sorry Gene…but it serves you right as you didn’t even remember my birthday). Sorry this is a day late--was gonna post it last night but our internet connection was down.

Thanks for always being someone who I could look up to and for being someone who I knew would always be there for me when I needed you. I can still remember running away from Gene (knowing that if he caught me he’d beat me up) and looking for you to protect me. Those were crazy times but it was great having my brother as my role model.

Anyway, enough with the sappy stuff…

Wishing you the best on your birthday, Shigs, and I hope you’re able to do all that you want to do this year. You need to bring Gene over here sometime during this summer and we'll have a BBQ at the beach.

Here are a few pics that I found in my photo folder. Enjoy! (You can get June to print and frame them on your wall, especially the second one!)

Thankfully something that I wasn't a part of

Definitely not how all Katos eat

This is the real Shigeru
