Dallas’s family’s best friends on Kauai are the Matsudas. They live just down the road from where Dallas and his family lived and we try to see them every time we go back to Kauai. Some years it’s just the family and us and some years, like this year, there are a lot of people. I think because Dallas’s parents were with us and a lot of their friends came over.

After the drag races we headed over to the Matsuda’s house. Uncle Bob and Uncle George and the others had to finish up at the race track and put the car back into storage so they met up with us later. Every time we come to Kauai, no matter what, Aunty Nancy makes Dallas his favorite dish that only she makes: Portuguese Meat. At least that’s what they call it (Aunty Nancy is Portuguese). This year she also got this enormous platter of ahi sashimi. Seriously, it was the biggest plate of sashimi I’ve ever seen… and probably the best-tasting too.

It was fun to see everyone again. Safina and Swede are growing up so big! They are such nice and open kids. Right away they fell right in with us. Swede was saying “Uncle, Uncle look at this!” to Dallas and kept bringing things out. We played ball and helped them decorate a cake for everyone (just the sprinkles). We’re not positive if it was someones birthday or if the kids just wanted to blow out candles.

So nice to see everyone and visit! Until next time..!

    OMG. That sashimi. It just. Oh my. All your Hawaii posts over the years have really, really, really inspired me to eventually go there. That plate? It’s like icing on the inspiration cake. Only in fish form.
