Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!  Even though it was 80 degrees, it actually felt like Thanksgiving this year.  We watched the Thanksgiving Day Parade and then Cory watched the Lions.  We had a great meal despite the fact that we do not have an oven and have exactly one small pot,  one small pan, and thankfully a crock pot.  We had turkey meatloaf, creamed corn casserole, mashed potatoes and some other small side dishes.  After that we watched Christmas movies.  It feels so great to have this extra long weekend.  A lot of my students have been getting sick, hopefully everyone will recover by the time we go back to school on Monday.

A few weeks ago we got to go zip-lining!  One of our friends works at a ziplining place in Koloa and had extra spots on her tour.  We were really excited because this was something that we always wanted to try.  There were 8 different lines to go on over a 3 hour period.  The first one was very short so we could get used to it.  After that they got more exciting. We could go upside down and backward if we wanted to.  Of course, Cory did that right away!  I was expecting to get the stomaching dropping feeling you have when you go on a roller coaster, but we didn't.  We had a lot of fun!

 All geared up and ready to go!

Nice views.

Below are links to some funny videos that we took while we were out.
