Haunted Lagoooooon..where grown men are cradled in the arms of lagoon monsters...

So for those of you who are not familiar with where we live, we live right next to (like a 2 minute walk) the Polynesian Cultural Center (PCC). SO theres this lagoon that runs through the entire PCC and you can take canoe tours through the whole thing on a normal day, but this year for the first time they opened it up at night and made it HAUNTED!
So we went to this haunted lagoon the night before Halloween. We went with Steven and Lauren (of course) and then our cousin Hannah and her husband Durah (I have NO idea how to spell that, forgive me if its wrong guys!!) who are HILARIOUS. So below from tallest to shortest haha, which was not planned, its me and Alex of course, then Lauren and Steven, and Hannah and Durah.
These are our scared faces right before we made it to the lagoon after waiting in line forEVER!
Lets play a game, how many chins can you count!!!!?
These are Lauren and Stevens scared faces, haha, Steve looks TERRIFIED!
Heres the canoe in the lagoon about to go! That guy on the back is the canoe pusher, he uses a huge stick to get the canoe around, I tried to apply for that job at the PCC in spring and they looked me up and down and told me very nicely, "maybe you can apply for a food and beverage worker..."
RIGHT BEFORE GETTING ON! Ok seriously theres no way this canoe pusher is stronger then me, I'm twice his size...this is HORSE CRAP

Ok time for the funniest story of the night. So we're going along on the canoe, it was seriously pretty dang scary, people were popping up from under the water and like jumping right onto the canoe! They would grab and touch people which is different then most haunted houses, and they were doing it alot to our friend Durah, who was sitting right in front of me and Alex. So towards the end of the ride this huge dude pops outta the water right next to Durah's side of the canoe and gets right in his face, he like sizes him up, and then all of a sudden he puts one arm behind Durah's back and one arm under his legs and PICKS HIM UP like in a baby cradle position!!!! Durah is just staring at this dude and kicking his legs so calmly and saying in a total monotone calm voice over and over "cell phone in pocket...cell phone in pocket..." Dude holds him for a minute, then sets him back in the canoe and disappears under the water. I can neither confirm nor deny that me and Alex peed our pants...SO WORTH THE LONG LINE! THANKS DURAH!!!!!!!!!

Happy Halloween!!!!!

Sooo I stayed home sick from work the other day but I had the craziest urge to bake! (those of you who know me well know that this def means I was sick...) So I wasn't sure why or what I was going to bake but I just started going at it and before I knew it I had like 3 dozen cookies and a ton of cupcakes! So after eating 2 of the 3 dozen cookies and half of the cupcakes I decided to use the rest to deliver to friends for halloween.
Halloweeny cupcakes! (yes thats a diet coke and a jar of frosting with a spoon in it :)
ok, when I(Alex) got home from school, as I was walking up to the building, I could smell something....when I walked in, the table was covered in cupcakes and cookies, and Emily was working away. If you think they look good in the picture, they were way better in my mouth. We decided to go reverse trick-or-treating, and take some goodies to some of our friends.
We decided to make this Halloween really special for our friends and hired Joe Dirt to deliver the goods...he was quite foxy and extremely charming and can only be described in the words of our friend Steven, "theres no business about that, thats party alll over!!"

so close

So me and Emily are both a little OCD....and one of those things that Emily is very OCD about, is washing her face. Showering, shaving, brushing her teeth....not so important....BUT her face is serious stuff!!(she gave me permission to say that....) Anyways, she has this sulfur mask that she will put on anything that looks like it might turn out to be a zit. So a while ago, as demonstrated by the picture below, she had put some sulfur on her face. After an hour or so, we decided to go to the store to pick up some stuff. It wasn't until we got out to the car, that she saw her reflection int he window, and realized that she had forgotten to wash it off....I may have noticed before we left, but oops....I forgot to tell her. I swear it was an honest mistake....Anyways, it gave us some good laughs.

no alcohol, littering or golfing?

Soooo me and Alex went to the beach the other day and as we were getting in our car to leave I saw this sign that was in front of a field on the other side of the road from the beach....all reasonable requests, no alcohol, animals, camping, parking, littering or fires. BUT thats not all, they also threw in no golfing, JUST in case you decided to grab your clubs and play a little putt putt in a huge dirt lot with fences around it....YOU KNOW YOUR IN HAWAII WHEN.....
