Random photos of Little E taken with the Canon EOS Rebel T1i. Think he looks better as a cool dude or a cool chef? I might be biased, but I love both!
Another fantastic Halloween in the books. What has become a family tradition, we headed down to Kailua to trick or treat with the family and Ensen gave fellow ghouls and goblins his best KISS (Paul Stanley) impersonation. Kelly sewed his costume and the little guy even let her paint his face. Doesn’t he look like a true rocker? He got a lot of nice comments from passersby and from the family. Now the big question is, what should he be next year? Before you answer that, here’s a few more photos to recap the night.
The hunt is on for candy…
Uncle Glen and Aunty Kim join Ensen on the trail…
Bag is filling up fast with lots of candy…
About half way around the block, Ensen started going up to the houses himself, saying “trick or treat” and collected candy himself. Priceless!
Battling the big kids for position…
A successful trip around the block and we’re spent…
Having fun with the Canon EOS Rebel T1i. Still figuring out how to use this thing…
Here’s a couple of Ensen’s friends…Kyle and Tara…
And one last crazy photo before we close.
Had some fun last night photographing our girl cat Tikki with the Canon EOS Rebel T1i. She was quite the model for the first 30 shots…then as you can tell by the last photo she had just about enough. We did reward her with extra pets which she thoroughly enjoyed.
He doesn’t know it yet, but I’ll soon be her brother Jabbey’s turn for his photo session. Stay tuned for those photos of our masked tuxedo cat.
In most cases, pictures speak louder than words, so I’m going to let the photos do the talking in this post.
But first a brief overview of what’s going on here. The Kam family enjoyed spending time this past weekend at the Sheraton Maui. It was a mix of business and leisure as I attended the Hawaii Hotel and Lodging Association’s Annual Membership Meeting and brought Kelly and Ensen along too. Ensen was especially glad Uncle Jon flew up to join us and was excited to cruise with Maui Grandma, Uncle Frank, and other family as well. By the end of the trip, I realized I hadn’t taken many photos though we were on the go-go-go most of the time. For what it’s worth, here’s a handful that documents our time there.
New toys awaited Ensen at Maui Grandma’s house.
We had a goal of eating Tasaka Guri Guri ice cream everyday we were there, but failed. We only ate it once but we ate a lot. Just for the record, Maui Grandma and Uncle Jon were with us. Four scoops mix (strawberry/pineapple) for the big kids…two scoops for Little E.
Our room at the Sheraton Maui in Kaanapali Resort was great. Tons of space for the family to chill out and beautiful views of the West Maui coastline. We had perfect weather too which didn’t hurt. As for the awesome pictures of Little E and me swimming in the pool…err…we’ll keep those in the family vault for now.
We even took some time to relax and play on the oceanfront lawn.
Watched the locals folks jump off legendary Black Rock.
Here’s some photos I took with my new Canon EOS Rebel T1i. I’ve got a long way to go in figuring out all this technical camera stuff and the fancy settings, but I did manage to take some pretty neat looking pics.
All in all, a great weekend trip to the Valley Isle. I should also note that we had tons of fun at the Maui Brewing Company which serves up great food and some of the best local beers in Hawaii. Strategically, there are no photos from those experiences. But trust me, we had an awesome time!
