We have had a fantastic start to the new year thus far! Last night, the Hart family rang in the new year with friends in Punalu'u. There was much eating, drinking, and fireworks. As of today, fireworks are now illegal in Hawaii...even sparklers!
This morning, we rolled out of bed around 10:30am, took the tree down, and headed out for a hike. We hiked a mountain near Dillingham that we later found out is named Peacock Flats. It was a gorgeous hike that afforded views of the entire North Shore coast. I did not see a single peacock though and the hike up this mountain reminded me that I really should start jogging again. At one point, I thought I was going to pass out from going up yet another hill. The views really were worth it though.
After our hike, we headed into town. We took Eve to Buca di Beppo for some pre-theater dinner and then we went to see Cats. It was fabulous! We had seats 4 rows back and she could see the cats really closely, especially when they came to the end of the stage. During the finale, Skimbleshanks came down into the audience and she got to pet him and play with him a little bit.
If New Year's Day is any indication of how the year is going to go, I think we're in for a good one! Happy 2011 everyone!
