Ohana U.S. tour 2010


those of you that follow us on twitter and / or on facebook know we are in the middle of the busiest part of our year. it’s august madness!

on friday august 20th we did marcella and cameron’s wedding at the palm house in the brooklyn botanic garden (brooklyn, new york) followed the next day by melissa and nathan’s wedding in the ocean view room in point loma (san diego, california) and today we are all hopping in the wagon queen family truckster and taking a mega road trip to whitney and man’s wedding in upstate new york next weekend. we are gonna be east bound and down passing kojaks with kodaks for a few days. the whole ohana has not been together on a cross-country road trip before, so this is going to be epic! it’s going to be a one car cannonball run. our “vacation family” members, noah & patti will be along for the ride to help keep us loopy during our midnight run. of course, we’ll be taking lots of pictures along the way so we can share our fun with you. some of the places we plan to hit are the grand canyon, arches national park, vail, kansas city, chicago, niagara falls, boston, cape cod, philadelphia, gettysburg, washington d.c., memphis, and the carlsbad caverns. that’s the plan anyway. we’ll see how many of those we actually hit once we’re on the road.


in case any of you are wondering, this comic book art scene of us was done by our very own april. it depicts some of our previous adventures, like when patti accidentally threw her own wallet away and she had to go dumpster diving to retrieve it.

the uma thurman reference is from a wedding that april and i shot together near santa barbara and while we were eating dinner with the couple, uma thurman (who happened to be sitting a few tables away) saw the couple in their wedding attire and sent over a congratulatory magnum of chateau de camp for everyone. while we enjoyed a bit of the high life, kim, patti, rain, and noah waited for us outside in the car because we were on our way to yosemite. that wine was good.

the pizza represents the pizza challenge we are going to do between chicago and new york. first stop for authentic new york pizza will be this little hole in the wall place we heard about, sbarros. can’t wait!

rain and noah are just like brother and sister, put them in a confined space and it’s like thunder dome.

april always spills her drinks, which is why she will not be getting a glass of that chateau de camp any time soon.

that’s it for now. catch you on the flip flop. later!
