Today was my Mom's 65th birthday. :) To celebrate, Mark & I took her to a delicious breakfast buffet at the Halekulani hotel in Waikiki. Everything in the buffet was delicious, but I especially enjoyed their selection of fresh fruits - they were all so sweet (especially the pineapple!) :) We also got her the Season 2 dvd set of "West Wing" - I thought it was a fitting gift since I was the one who was responsible for her addiction. ;)

After the breakfast we went over to her house and spent some time with her and her cute, but VERY neurotic dog Yuki. She's so neurotic, that she's probably the only dog who's afraid of tile floors, doorways, and stairs. Poor Yuki - since most of the rooms in my Mom's house have tiled floors. :( Yuki is also a pretty hyper dog and will usually run several laps around the entire house for the first few minutes that we're there. It usually takes us a while to actually see what she looks like each visit because all we usually see when we walk through the door is a fuzzy white blur. :P

Here are a few photos we took at breakfast and with the fuzzy neurotic puppy. :)

While we ate breakfast, we had a fabulous view of Diamond Head - which you can see in the background of this photo. :)

My Mom with her cute, neurotic puppy. :) BTW, I love this photo of my Mom - I think it's my favorite that I have of her, though Yuki looks a little silly in the picture. :)

Here I am with Yuki. It's so hard to take a picture with her because she just WON'T stay still! ;) We both look really silly here, but this is one of the only photos I have with her. :P

Hope you all have a nice start to your week. I'm off to catch up with all of your journals. :)
Current Mood: hothot & humid!

Awww! Thanks so much, Andrea! :) My Mom and her dog are sure a lot of fun to photograph! :)

Halekulani is on Kalakaua, in the back of Royal Hawaiian and the Sheraton Waikiki. It's so pretty there - it's my favorite place to eat breakfast. :)

Those pictures are great! :D Your mom looks so pretty in the picture w/Yuki. :)

Awww, thanks Carrie! My Mom is such fun to photograph and Yuki is even more fun to photograph since neither of them like to sit still. ;)

I love that picture of you & your Mom! No way would my Mom pose for a pic if she knew it were for the Internet.

The pic of your Mom with Yuki is too precious as is the one with YOU and Yuki -- cute cute!!

Your hair looks GREAT btw!

My Mom is a bit camera shy too, but she's gotten used to my shutterbug ways. ;)

I really like that photo of Yuki with my Mom, though Yuki always looks like she doesn't have any ears... I have yet to take a picture of her with her ears up (which they are normally until I get out my camera!) ;)

Awww! Thanks for noticing my new hair color! I think you're the only one who noticed. :D

What wonderful pictures! Your mom looks so young and vibrant. :)

It's hard to imagine Yuki being your dog!
Sheri: Sydney & Sherishutterbug93 on July 12th, 2005 08:45 am (UTC)
Thanks, Amanda! :D

And I find it hard to believe that she was our dog too! Her personality is SO different from Sydney's (and ours) that I can't imagine having to chase her around the house every day or carry her over tile or out of doorways. ;) Gotta love her, though - in all her cute neurotic glory. ;)

Thanks, Kristen! Yuki is a cutie, I have to admit! :D We love her a lot! She used to be our dog before we gave her to my Mom so she'll always hold a special place in our hearts. :)

We actually gave Yuki away as a puppy to my Mom when she and Sydney didn't get along. Poor Sydney had so much anxiety from Yuki's hyper nature that she got physically ill. It all worked out really well, though since my Mom adores Yuki and we can still watch her grow up. :)

Beautiful pictures of beautiful ladies! :)
Sheri: Sydney & Sherishutterbug93 on July 12th, 2005 08:47 am (UTC)
Awww, Smitha - you're so sweet!

Your mom is so cute! She looks so happy!

Happy birthday to your mom!

How cute she is....

What kind of a dog is that?
I can tell that she's a pistol! LOL
Sheri: Sydney & Sherishutterbug93 on July 12th, 2005 08:49 am (UTC)
Thanks so much, Stacey! I'll definitely pass along your birthday wishes to my Mom. :D

Yuki is a Japanese Spitz. :) It's kind of hard to tell because her ears are never up in any pictures that I take. ;) And you're right, she's a feisty one! :D
Sabine: Micki's placesabine10 on July 11th, 2005 08:54 pm (UTC)
That are wonderful photos. You all look great and, to me, your hair looks beautiful. And, you know, seeing you all smiling made me smile, too. :) Thanks for sharing the photos, Sheri.

Hope you had a nice day. Big *hugs* to you
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on July 12th, 2005 08:51 am (UTC)
Awww, thank you Sabine! Thanks for your sweet comments about the photos and my hair (thanks for noticing too!) I'm glad that I was able to get some photos of Yuki since it's almost impossible to keep her in one place for long. :)

Hope you're having a nice week, Sabine! Big *HUGS* to you! :D

Very nice pictures. Your mom does not look 65. She's so cute. :)

BTW how ong is Guys and Dolls? The reason I'm asking is because of the Brock sitution.
Sheri: Sydney & Sherishutterbug93 on July 12th, 2005 08:54 am (UTC)
Wow! My Mom will be happy to hear that she doesn't look her age - that'll probably make her day! :D Thanks, Laura! :)

"Guys & Dolls" starts at 2pm and will probably run until 4:45 or 5pm at the very latest. Totally understandable that you'd wonder since Brock is still recovering. How's he doing?

I remember the Diuamond Head when I went to Hawaii, it's quite amazing. You know, you look like your mom, very pretty!! The doggie pics looks wonderful, she seemed loved. I know what you mean when a dog just doesn't wanna stay in one spot when it comes to taking pictures, I do that same thing w/ Kahlua. She's always hyper and always acts like she's got ants in her pants butt!!
