I can’t really explain how much I love this song. It makes me think of wonderful times riding in the car with my family, singing along with the radio, and all of my siblings telling me to shut up. The message is great though. I love hearing about “The good old days.” I wish Milo could grow up back then. I’m so afraid of raising a child in this day and age. Today so many things are going wrong in our world and I wish there was someway to go back…. as long as I can keep my internet and cell phone 🙂

Heather was waking Milo up from a deep sleep and she was doing some very scary crazy faces (kids turn your heads).
We haven’t gotten a good video yet but Milo snorts, so in the meantime she does some other cute things.
So Milo has arrived at her new home and met her brother Oliver. Oliver still doesn’t know what to make of it all so he just smells her hair and lays down right next to Heather or me just to remind us that he was our first.

This is the very popular sand bar that the folks go with their boats and kayaks. The tide can get low enough to just drop anchor and people grill out and relax all weekend long out here. Heather and I have yet to do it but once I get my boat license I can rent boats cheap at the Marine Corp Base… all we need is some visitors to come enjoy it with us…
We saw this at our Koolau Ranch Tour and ever since we can find it all around our condo.
Here’s some info on these cool WEED!
Mimosa pudica is well known for its rapid plant movement. In the evening the leaflets will fold together and the whole leaf droops downward. It then re-opens at sunrise. This type of motion has been termed nyctinastic movement. The leaves also close up under various other stimuli, such as touching, warming, blowing, or shaking. The stimulus can also be transmitted to neighbouring leaves. These types of movements have been termed seismonastic movements. The movement is caused when the leafs lose turgor pressure. Turgor pressure is the force that is applied onto the cell wall by water and other cell contents. This allows the plant to stay upright, but when it is disturbed by a stimuli, chemicals in the plant force the water to leave the cell. When this pressure is lost the result is a sagging plant. This characteristic is quite common within the Mimosaceae family. It is not known exactly why the Mimosa pudica has this feature but many scientists think that the plant uses its ability to shrink as a defense from predator. Many animals may be afraid of such a fast moving plant and would rather go and eat a less active one.
