  A good night's sleep
was just what the crime fighters needed ! They awake bright eyed and ready to go look for good deeds and/or crime . . .

But first . . . breakfast for the Bat-team ! What's to eat ? they all call to mama Ruthie ! We need energy - lots of crime to fight today !

Mama Ruthie makes sure they get a healthy breakfast with fruit and carbs and protein ! Just what they need to start their day !

Soon as they finish Laka, Pookie and Cookie give her kisses and wave bye-bye as they head out to the batmobile !

  Hi Laka
The movie sure was fun! I like seeing Rio 2 almost as much as Rio. That 3D is awesome, isn't it? Okay, I'll check with mom about the cruise next week, but I'm sure she'll be okay with it. She always wanted to do that herself, you know, and she's never even been to Hawaii!
Let's go for a walk in BC today, see the KB, the castle, the movie theater, the pizza place, the pie shop, whatever else there is to see. Maybe we can stop by the flower shop and I'll buy you a pretty rose. Hugs, Willie

  Hi Laka
Let's catch a movie, unless you want to do something a bit more active? And, if we have time next week, I heard that there is a really cool cruise of your Hawaiian Islands, maybe we could go on it for a few days?? I'd love to see some of the other islands, especially Kauai, where there are still lots of native birds because they wouldn't let the mongoose on the island. Willie tells Laka he will pick her up for the movie, but if she wants to do something else, they can go for a hike or play tennis. Hugs, Willie

  The winged crime fighters
turn the batmobile back towards the house . . . it is getting near dinner time and they know that it's movie night !

Cookie hops right up to the table when they get home to tell mama Ruthie all about their idea to write a book about their adventures ! Then he asks if he can dunk his popcorn in the vege soup - he loves to dunk !

LakaAolani decides to try it too, but Pookie rolls his eyes and grabs a wingful of popcorn to toss in his beak !

feel good about themselves after helping the little bird . . . they wave to the little bird as it flies off to meet up with its family and they high four and hug each other !

LakaAolani takes out a Batdiary to write down their adventure . . . later when they have a bad weather day they can start to write a BatBook !

Your score was like my mom's scores when she tries to bowl, but we always remember that it's all in fun. Nobirdie takes this seriously here, we just like to play. These fries and coke are good, let's go for a walk in the gardens before I take you back home, okay? We can go in the Aussie garden, and Falco's magic flower garden. You can pick flowers for your mom, because they grow back immediately! Willie gives Laka a little kiss as they walk.
Hugs, too, Willie

  Pineapple cake for brain food !
Boy, mama Ruthie sure has some good ideas ! And then the crime fighters are off to see if they can find some good deeds to do ! They decide over their cake that that would be just as good as fighting crime !

As they head out they find a little tree frog trying to hop across the road and run to his rescue before a car comes ! !

They make room for him in the batmobile and hurry it across the road - he hops out and thanks the good deed doers in capes !

High fours all around as they race back to see if they can have some more cake to celebrate their first mission !

  Hi Laka
I hope you can get the video up on the BC. I bet it's adorable!
I think you need a splash pool at home to cool off. One like the parronts had in their hotel room. It was 3 feet deep and 7 feet wide and 9 feet long ... just perfect to relax in and get cooled off. And of course, a birdie splash pool too!
We had a heat wave today for a couple of hours! It was 55 degrees ...woohoo! Still waiting to see some sun on my feathers. Hope every bird had a nice weekend.

decide to take the box mama Ruthie found for them and paint it to look like the batmoblile on the tv show. As Pookie runs to papa Peter to see if he has some paint for their batmobile, LakaAolani and Cookie drag it out to the garage and start drawing designs on the box . . .

We need lots of shiny buttons and switches ! And a big BATGIRL on the side ! Let's see if mama Ruthie has something we can make capes out of !

Three very excited friends planning a new adventure !

Is your video on BC or FB? I can view those. I'm sure you look adorable!
I will be happy to trade weather ... just send it here.
Just another cold (49 to 51 degrees for a high) and rainy day. I was busy destroying some new toys. Mom waited until I was finished to clean my area. I wonder why? I thought it looked nice. It finally stopped raining at dinner time.

Oh yes please, send the hot weather (and sunshine) this way! I really don't think you want temps in the high 40's for the day and 30's at night! Also, we haven't seen the sun in a long time.
I can hear your theme song ...dadadadadadadadadada ... BAT GIRL! So you have the costume too?
I would love to see your video but, we can't seem to get email videos.
It was just another cold, dark and rainy day. At least, dad turned on the heat this morning. Mom & I were frozen! Hope you are having better weather. It's time for hot chocolate and warm fuzzy slippers.

Cookie asks mama Ruthie to show him the video of LakaAolani (aka BATGIRL) again ! He just can't get enough of how silly she is and how happy she makes mama Ruthie !

As Cookie is watching mama Ruthie's telephone one more time, he hears Pookie calling from the yard for him and Laka to come see all the bugs that are vacationing in the little wingmade resort they built !

I think you are special too! I was wondering why the name Bat Girl ... now I know ... silly girl. I can hear the batman music playing LOL!

What a cold and dreary day we had. The high temps were 48 to 52 degrees ... BRRR! I had to wear my hoodie to keep warm.
Today we remember all the people lost in the WTC, Pentagon and Shanksville PA ... keeping them and the survivors in our thoughts and prayers.

take little twigs and leaves to make a little bug park near their wingmade river . . . all they need is for the bugs to find it !

Pookie says they won't come if the three bbf's are watching, so they head into the back to play on the swings for a while :)

Every once in a while they sneak over to spy on their little park - Laka thinks if they put a few little flowers and little rocks for the bugs to sit and enjoy the day . . .

Where should we eggsplore first ? Pookie decides to eggsplore the yard - Cookie and LakaAolani grab a couple magnifying glasses and run to catch up -

They check in the dirt to see what kinds of bugs they can find :) Cookie takes a little stick and drags it through the dirt making a little dry river bed . . . Laka jumps up, grabs her pink pail and runs to the pool to fill it up . . . pretty soon the three friends have their own little river in the yard !

Laka calls to mama Ruthie to see if she can help them make a little origami sailboat . . .

sit and look at the pretty green rock and wonder if they could move it near a lamp so when the light is on, the rock will sparkle :) They keep moving it from one spot to another in the house . . .

Then they sit back to look for a while . . . Yep, I think that's the spot says Cookie, right near Laka's cage where she can always have something pretty to see :)

Laka smiles . . . awwww, you guys are so sweet :) Group hug and off they run to watch some Gilligan !

is soo eggcited and she gives Laka a warm wing hug!You know you are so right about great minds thinking alike,Auntie Ruthie and Mom sure do have so much in common and always seem to be thinking on the same wave lengths!
Oh Laka I just can't believe that you love the color pink as much as I do!I just love pink everything and anything!You are so right that the Pink Store would be so dangerous to the two of us and I totally agree with you that its more fun to go shopping with two instead of all alone and by yourself!
I will get online and check out the origami sections store and chose some prints and colors that I would like and then I'll get back to you with the designs and colors I think would go great on the tree!I'll get some paper and send you some then after I check the whole thing out and send you all my choices,then we could have a big folding party!

How sad that she passed away so soon,and I'll bet wonderful Mama Ruthie's husband Dean was just as awesome as she is too!
Little Angel is so eggcited and she agrees that she will love to start help folding and get some of the origami cranes begun so they can plan on just how many of each color combination they will need!

  The move
Well, Rob has wanted to move to TX for years now. Even though he was born and raised here, he just doesn't have the "local" mindset (and neither do I). We just have a hard time relating to most people here and tend to get along much better with mainland/military people. 95% of our friends are military.

The only reason we haven't moved so far is because I didn't want to leave my dad. So with the agreement that my dad will come visit me every year (which is easy since he goes back to TX every year to visit his relatives and check on his rental property) and Rob will send me home to HI every year so I can see both my parents and stock up on things I can't get on the mainland, I've agreed to finally move because I know it's better for us in the long run.

Another reason is our retirement. It will be much cheaper to retire on the mainland, whereas we'd have to save up at least a million each to retire "comfortably" here and not have to rely on Medicaid/the state. We really don't want to end up in state-run homes or anything like that.

We've paid our house off already so we plan to just rent it out, while we'll sell the condo and use that money to buy the mainland house.

Come visit me, Raptor, Mika (RIP 10/18/12) & Emeria.
