Today I did something that I've wanted to do for over a year...hike the Hauula Loop trail. I haven't done that hike for over 6 years. So this morning I got 4 of my grandchildren to go with me, Peja, Rick, Shawnee and Melia. My son, Bryan who is Shawnee and Melia dad surprised us and met us on the trail with the girls dog Bully. It was great fun, but I'm sure not in a shape!!! And it looks like Peja and Rick aren't either. The walking stick, I got it at Yellowstone National Park, about 4 years ago. It went with me on a train ride to Aubany, New York, a plane ride to Gig Harbor, Washington and then a plane ride home. This is the first time I've used it here, and of course the grandkids had to try it out.
