Today when we got out of church the day was so beautiful I didn't want to waste it sitting around in the house. So we all decided it would be a nice day to visit the zoo and see Zuri, the baby elephant, that we have all been wanting to see. Sarah didn't work so we were able to go as a family (well, without our two sons that are serving missions). It was the perfect day to go to the zoo. It wasn't cold or hot and most of the animals were out and about enjoying the nice weather. We were able to watch Zuri nursing, playing with her toys and taking a little nap. The colors of the leaves were beautiful. We ran into my cousin, Portia, and her children. It seems that often times when we go on one of our outings were run into a family member (I guess great minds think alike). We all had a fabulous time at the zoo.
I am the father of 4 great children and two incredible daughters-in-law. I have been married to the same amazingwoman for over 26 years. I enjoy life especially when I am outdoors. I am employed as the Environmental Manager for a mining company.
I think that the Disney character that I'm most like would have to be
Aladdin. I'm not sure if this is because it was my favorite Disney movie as
a child ...

My sister Kimberly is 10 years my junior. She is among the most adventuresome and accomplished of my siblings. She is married to Sione Fifita and they have one son Viliami who just turned two. She has been a professor of English in Hawaii and currently works for a scrapbooking supply company (Stampin Up). She has actually changed jobs more often than I have! She is writing a novel (has been for years) which I am eagerly anticipating. She has always been a great sister and in some sense is the glue that keeps all six of us bonded together. It has been nice to have her family back on the mainland and to live closer to them.
