Saucer Summer Tour Part 15


Friday, June 22nd, 2012
Today Uncle Tim took us to the neighborhood park and had the boys help him build a trebuchet (catapult).  First they tried to lift the 25lb dumb bell.  Then they used the lever part of the trebuchet to lift the 25kb dumb bell to see how much easier the lever made the job.  Then they launched tennis balls and water balloons to see the difference in distance they would go based on the items’ weight.  Finally we used our body weight to increase the force on the lever to see how far the items would go.   It was a BLAST!!!

After Uncle Tim and the boys dismantled the trebuchet we headed back to the house for lunch.  After lunch we opened presents from Uncle Tim and Aunt April.  We played with our new toys!!  Then Uncle Tim had to go to work for a couple hours.  Simon took a nap and the older boys played hard J  When Tim got home he made us super tender chicken to make fajitas.  We ate quickly as Aunt April’s mom got 6 free passes to the opening showing of Brave!!  Ian couldn’t decide if he wanted to go to the movie.  He decided to stay home and play.  Joey found out and decided to stay home with cousin Ian.  So Mommy, Aunt April, Alan and Eddie went to see BRAVE!!
 When we were taking the exit to hwy23 it was way backed up so we off roaded to take the next exit down.  We got to the theatre with time to spare J  They delayed the show about 10min for those people stuck in the traffic on hwy 23.  The showing was for employees of Wells Fargo Banking and their families.  Thank you Mrs. Zeoli for sharing them with us!!!  The movie is AWESOME and will be part of our family collection as soon as it comes out on DVD.  I think the soundtrack will be added to itunes soon as well.

Today we had French toast for breakfast.   Then we played more with Ian and Simon!!  We had leftovers for lunch and played outside.  When Simon took his nap Uncle Tim got out the new sprinkler.  We played in that for a while.  Then it turned into a water WAR!!  We took baths/showers when we came inside.  Then we played some more J  When Simon woke up we had a snack while Uncle Tim showed us how to butterfly and brine a chicken.  We had the chicken and roasted red potatoes and zucchini for dinner.  Then we walked to the park to play. Uncle Tim showed Mommy some tricks on the big camera.  Then Mommy and Aunt April went to the store to get ice cream for night night snack.  It was yummy!!

I Got Type 1 DiabetesMonday, January 1, 2018
  I went camping at Pupukea for Boy Scout winter camp. I was an SPL (the senior scout boy leader). My chest started to hurt with each move. I went to the nurse and she said it was only heartburn; she advised me to treat a heartburn you want to stay a from meats, eggs, cheese; any free carb foods; and eat foods like a bread, juices, milk; heavy carb foods; [all bad for a diabetic but we didn't know yet.] I went home a day earlier after the final fire bowl. The nurse and other medical professionals, at camp, told me all I needed was a hot shower and good night sleep because I was camping in the rain. When I came home and took a shower I couldn't even stand up. So my mom checked my blood sugar just to rule out that I wouldn't have diabetes. I was around 500. You should be 80-150. So, my mom rushed to Tripler (the big pink hospital) at 1:00 am because the hospital on Hickam is only a clinic for appointments and not ER. We rushed to t…
Saturday, June 30th, 2012 Today was the Looney Hooley at Teresa Berg’s.  We didn’t get there at the beginning so we didn’t play in the horse shoe tournament this year.  The boys sent straight to the kiddie pool to play.  It was great seeing all the Looney side of the family.  A group of us played Mexican Dominoes.  It was quite the game as no one seemed to be sure of the rules and we seemed to change them frequently throughout the game J  When the sun started going down someone got the fire going in the fire pit.  The smores supplies appeared and we had a yummy, sticky mess!!  It was a full moon so we decided it was finally dark enough for the fireworks at 10pm.  They were AMAZING and we taught the kids to scream, “Honk Honk” when they really liked them!!
I didn't have my camera out, but Alan took some pictures on a hand me down camera he got from Aunt Kathy.
