Still at the zoo

Was impressed with these trees. Colors were unique and so were the hanging roots.
They do have real elephants but this was cuter.

Honolulu Zoo

This sign shows how far we are from all the famous world zoos. Honolulu Zoo is quite small but very children friendly. My son bought a family year pass and they enjoy going here a lot.
On this day, we met up with other wives of residents who enjoy these outings with their kids too.

During the rain we took refuge under a roof with milk cans and a ceramic cow.
There is a sign on the cow and it wasn't until after we took these photos that I read the sign, "Do not climb or sit on this cow!"

In Hawii

With Nami in Honolulu Zoo

Did you ever watch turtles doing it? Well here is a pair and too bad you can't hear the noise they make! I never though turtles could say anything but they were really drawing attention to themselves.
One of the highlights of Nami's day is when Daddy comes home and takes her for a bike ride.
My first day in Hawaii, I had a delightful lunch with friends from the AFWJ club. Some live in Hawaii and others were just visiting...but all of us have Japanese husbands.
