My Grandma was surprised to see us, and felt bad that we flew all the way to see her. She kept saying, "No need come!" though she always feels bad when we go out of our way to see her. She looked great and healthy and kept thanking us for making the trip to see her. :)
In addition, we were able to stop by some of our favorite food places on the island!! Mark & I ate lunch at Cafe 100 - which had THE BEST veggie patty loco moco I've ever eaten! (Mark had the Super loco - which is basically a heart attack on a plate - 2 eggs, hamburger patty, spam, and portugese sausage...) Whoa... We then stopped off at Two Ladies Kitchen to pick up some fresh strawberry mochi, and then headed to Big Island Candies for some INCREDIBLE shortbread cookies.
All in all it was an extremely wonderful day!!

My Mom, Uncle, and Aunt who also came to share in the celebration. :)
With Mark at Two Ladies Kitchen - THE BEST mochi place in all of Hawaii!
Here are just some of the delicious types of mochi that they make there. :)
Mark with his Super loco - 2 eggs, hamburger patty, spam, portugese sausage, gravy, AND mac salad...
Otherwise known as the heart attack on a plate... :P
My Mom would kill me if she knew I posted this photo... but I think it's SO cute!
She was laughing when the photo was taken... a priceless moment! :D :D
A silly photo of all of us on the way home from a great day trip!! :)
Hope you all had a lovely Saturday!! I'm off to spend some time hugging my fuzzy dog!! :)
