Astrophotography


So here are a few of Nathan's latest pictures from Mauna Kea. He took the girls up last weekend to the freezing cold to test out his telescope so he could be ready to teach the scouts about astronomy.
Here are two amazing astrophotography pictures he took (he thinks they are not very good).
The 1st--A Nebula
The 2nd--Star Cluster

Def. of Nebula:s an interstellar cloud of dust, hydrogen gas, helium gas and other ionized gases. In these regions the formations of gas, dust, and other materials "clump" together to form larger masses, which attract further matter, and eventually will become massive enough to form stars. The remaining materials are then believed to form planets, and other planetary system objects.

Father's Day was filled with waffles and pineapple syrup--easy recipe: 1/2 cup cup sugar, 1/2 cup pineapple juice and 1/2 cup butter. Heat to boil. Yummy.

For dinner: pulled pork and coconut (haupia) chocolate pie from allrecipes.com.

We stayed home from church because Dallas woke up with no voice and very bad cough. We are headed to Oahu for her follow-up eye appt. Trying to figure out an activity for the day there--maybe Dole pineapple plantation??
Check out Dallas's hair do in rags--I thought I would never do this to my kids but it is so fun!

The beach was so crazy windy last week, but great for these kite sailors.

The girls are growing so so fast. Brenna gave her first talk in Primary this Sunday. I was so proud of her because she practiced so much and didn't need my help. It was about Jesus walking on the water. We got it from here. There is a clip at the bottom I made her say it for me. She had little trouble in the middle in the video:)
