Happy Belated 3rd Birthday Celebration, Kekoa
It took awhile, but we finally made it to Hilo. Huge mahalo to everyone who contributed some moo-lah to Kekoa's birthday fund. We got a year-long family membership to 'Imiloa Astronomy Center aka THE MOST INTERESTING PLACE EVER!
We started with a show in the planetarium called Seven Wonders (about the 7 wonders of the old world, of which only one is still standing...Mr A calls shenanigans) then headed out to see the canoes which had been brought up for the Wayfinding & Navigation Festival. Last, we blasted through the exhibits inside. The boys were so overwhelmed with the newness of it all, they were just running around and touching everything. Maybe next time they will take a moment to like, I dunno, actually read/listen/do some of it.
Something I LOVE about 'Imiloa is that all of their exhibits are in both English and Hawaiian. Ikaika was pumped to see a giant picture of his school principal on one of the displays (the exhibit was about Hawaiian education). I'm excited to see every single planetarium show on the menu.
