Biggest news for today is that we attended the "Lost" Season 2 premiere last night down in Waikiki at Sunset on the Beach. I can't remember if I explained what Sunset on the Beach is in an earlier post... but in a nutshell: They have a large, 30-foot screen that the city of Waikiki uses to put on public events! They premiere movies and tv shows that are filmed here in Hawaii.... and last night was the showing of the new "Lost" Season 2 opener!
The events started around 5pm with games and food vendors. We couldn't go that early, as C had to work his regular day. The actors from the show arrived and did the red carpet thing, gave autographs and spoke to the crowd... all before we got there.
We showed up shortly after 7pm, and the weather was NOT cooperative!! It was pouring down rain, and we had no umbrellas or chairs or anything. I had envisioned sitting either in the grass or sand and enjoying a nice sunset on the beach before the movie. It didn't work out that way AT ALL. So many people had their umbrellas up, that we couldn't see anything! We were cold and wet and unable to see a thing, so we ended up leaving... so I didn't see the show!! It airs on TV next week, so we'll have to wait like the rest of the world to see it.
Another girl here in Hawaii got some good pictures, though! She got there much earlier than we did, and also got her chairs in a spot so she could actually see the screen. These pictures were taken by Nicole:

Like I've said, rainbows abound! Something else that's cool about them, a LOT of times, they're full rainbows here! Full arcs from one end to the other!

At the same time, N was riding his bike, getting more and more daring. The neighbor kids have built a small ramp that they love to jump, and N has joined in with them. Here he is, on the approach:
