still in Papeete


,
we are still here at the anchorage, waiting for parts for a boat Steve is working on.... we checked out of here for last Friday so we are riding on borrowed time. Tonight is the opening night for the big Tahian Festival - the Polynesian Dance Competition. so I went and got us tickets!! should be fun, will post tomorrow before we leave for Moorea. How do you like Emma's hair cut?! she went real short!! shocked me, I think it looks cute, makes her look all grown up...... now my son, his is getting longer! go figure the daughter get short, the son grows it long! nice sunset, eh? right in the anchorage at Tahiti, that's Moorea in the background, we plan on going swimming with the rays soon as we get there. Malachi has been there for a few days now waiting for us and O"vive will be leaving tomorrow or the next day. They have family fly here from France and we look forward to hanging out with them. The kids took the "Le Truck" to Papeete all by their selves to see Emilie and Alec ( Ovive) apparently Emma was scared the whole way there and back , thinking they would miss the stop, but they did fine! I am looking forward to leaving here, we've been here almost 2 weeks.... thats enough time in the City for me. I like Vancouver as a City a whole lot better. nice to have a big park in the middle ...... miss that.

I didn't even recognize you, Emma!! You look so much older, a beautiful haircut...will have to show it to your brother, he might decide to get one too!! You all are growing too quickly, its hard for me to keep up with you!

Keep enjoying yourselves, sounds like you are really learning a lot while away. Missing you sooooo much and loving you more!!

Great hairdo Emma and a beautiful dress! Kyle...first it was your Dad and now Emma...take a cue here buddy! Maya, I know you'll want to keep your hair long, you and Mom can stick together on that one.
Incredible sunset Orca III...so Tahiti really is a peaceful place.
Weather has been great here (finally!) and my garden is finally 'bloomin.' I know it's hot when I have to water my plants EVERY night!
Big hugs to you all - love you and miss you...
