I got spend almost a whole month with my family. We mourned and laughed together. It was exactly what I needed.
As always, my time in Hawaii was spent eating. Every single time I go home, I have to stuff myself silly. There's just so much food that is hard to get or impossible to get the same quality outside the islands.
My cousin and I were both craving sushi when we were helping clean our grandparents' house. So that night I talked the family into getting some. I got my favorite soft shell roll. We have yet to find a restaurant in Italy that serves it. Crab in general is hard to find in our part of Italy.
But now that I'm living in Italy, I also crave fast food and greasy American food. In college and when I was working at the hospital in Portland, I pretty much ate Bacon Cheddar Potato Wedges from Jack in the Box everyday. So of course I had to make Daddy stop by for some.
Leetle, Beebee, and I were surprised with a trip to get shave ice. Real shaved ice. Not that ball crap some mainland places serve.
