San Antonio

Just got back this evening from a quick overnight trip to S.A. for Rey's grandparent's 60th Anniversary party. It was very nice. A Hawaiian lual theme and I learned that my Hawaiian name is Loika and Rey's is Lei. Miranda is Milanaka and I never found Seth's name but now I know it's Keka. (Go to: to find out your Hawaiian name)

Rey had a really good time seeing his 6 boy cousins and 2 girl cousins. Rey and his brothers are 4 so that's 10 boy grandsons and only 2 granddaughters his grandparents have! Isn't that wild?! They are all one year or months apart from each other and span about 10 years.

Rey's parents only had 2 grandchildren for 11 years (Rey's daughter Mandi and Robert's son Bobby) and then they had a great spurt of grandchildren. They had 6 grandchildren in 5 years! Three girls and Three boys born right after each other for a total of 4 grandsons and 4 granddaughters. The only one missing that night was Mandi. We took pictures of the seven grandchildren that were there.

A good time was had by all but now here we are back to the "troche moche." Don't know how to spell that but it's what my mother would always say and it's roughly translated "back to the grind." Dentist appointment for Miranda tomorrow and tons of work to do. Good night!
