driving to winter

On Tuesday, while our family was still visiting from Grandma's wedding weekend, we decided to take a drive up to Mauna Kea. This was a PERFECT excuse to wear my winter clothes, which interestingly enough I had been missing. There is nothing MORE fun than dressing up in winter clothes. We didn't make it up to the snow because it was too high, but it was still PLENTY cold. My poor cousins were FREEZING, but I was nice and toasty thanks to our winter experiences in Utah last year.


Here's me and Aunty Melissa. Note my cute toasty jacket that Keola got me for Christmas last year. It was on sale at the Gap. He has good taste when it comes to buying me stuff.


Poor Miya smiling through the cold. The cousins kept asking me how cold it would be. I didn't really know how to explain to them how cold it would be. They sure found out on their own.




I forgot how spectacular the drive up to Mauna Kea is. Of course, this is Mauna Loa taken FROM Mauna Kea. Naturally, I didn't actually get pics of Mauna Kea....
