The Kam family jetted off to the Big Island for the long Labor Day weekend to spend time with my parents in Kona. Needless to say, it was great to unwind and just veg out for a few days before coming back to reality (that is the working life) on Tuesday.

Here’s a few photos from our first day there. As you can see, Ensen had a great time playing with Kona Grandpa in the yard and checking everything out around the house. We ended the night with a delicious dinner which was the perfect way to end a long first day (that started at 3:30 a.m. to catch our 5:55 a.m. flight).

And don’t worry. Kona Grandma and Kelly were there too but somehow no photos of them on Day 1. They do make an appearance on Days 2 and 3. 🙂

Ensen chilling “Kona style” with one hand tucked under the shirt exposing the mid-section and other hand at his side. This is typical local style. After a quick change to a cooler tank top, Ensen show Kona Grandpa where to put the mini pineapple they picked from the backyard.

Ensen watches Kona Grandpa light the fire, while later that evening I pose for a quick photo with my boy!

Despite having to be at Honolulu International Airport at 5 a.m. to catch our Hawaiian Airlines flight to Kona, Ensen was in good spirits running around the waiting area. Once on the plane, he slept the entire way. This gave him plenty of energy to enjoy the first day in Kona.


  1. Last weekend was the best!! It was such a treat to have Ensen on our turf for a change. As we said earlier, our house will never be the same without him here. He’ll definitely be #1 in our thoughts and in our hearts as we explore the country’s capital. A BIG hug & kiss to our favorite little guy.
