Here's Brady and Kamalei - don't they look like they come from the same gene pool?The girls had just returned from girl's camp and had woven these lovely shade hats. Kamalei thought it would be a good fashion statement for Brady.The girls are hula dancers. Not just your average, neighborhood dance studio hobbyists, but really expert dancers that compete in international competitions. The nice thing is that they perform on command for family. Kamalei and Kokia danced for us in an impromptu performance in their living room. These adorable girls are just 14 and 17 years old. The video is a little dark, but you can tell how good they are and how strong they are. And there is a proud mom and dad in the background.
They tried to teach Melanie and Roxanne some moves. Melanie gave it a good try. I should have taken some video of her. Her hips were trying to hula, but her shoulders and her feet had a little too much hip hop in them.
Here's Dave and Kiona: We got a serenade from Colin:
Melanie and Kamalei:
Rachel and Kokia:I'm happy the kids got to renew some friendships with their cousins. They don't get to see each other often enough.
