Five years old now. In his first year of kindergarten. Favorite book is an encyclopedia about sharks. Favorite food is chicken katsu (which we will be having for dinner). Birthday cake request was carrot cake with cream frosting and blueberries on top. Told me the other day that he wants to be a writer when he grows up, "but only in Hawaiian".
How fortunate that Ikaika's birthday this year fell on a no-school Friday! Over breakfast, we looked at his baby scrapbook and marveled at how much he has grown/still looks the same. Then we went to the 4-D movie theater and saw "Sea Monsters", which was super cool. Thanks Aunty Beth.
After, we went to the black sand beach and just enjoyed the cool, clear ocean water. Thanks God.
I got a resnap of a picture from 5 years ago.
Our first son. I just love him SO much.
