OK Wendy, here's some Honeymoon pictures although it wasn't quite a "traditional" honeymoon. Teresa is a 1st grade teacher and she could only get a few days off right after the wedding so we took a 2 night "cruise" on the Queen Mary in Long Beach


Took a day trip over to Catalina Island


Back home for 2 weeks then off to Oahu for 10 days for a "family honeymoon" with Teresa's 2 daughters and another family The Hawaiian trip was already planned years before I came along, we just decided to get married before the trip and call it a honeymoon. Stayed in a 4 bedroom house at the foot of Diamond Head, here is a rainbow over Diamond Head taken from the park a block away


Byodo In Buddhist Temple


Cliff diving at Halona Bay

OK, that cliff wasn't over the water so I didn't dive It was just a random, remote beach that we stoppped at. Teresa and I were lounging on the beach watching the kids swim and she said we should re-enact the famous kissing-in-the-surf scene in "From Here to Eternity". We had no ideas that was the actual beach where that scene was filmed 60 years ago! FREAKY!!!!

Snorkeling in Hanauma Bay


Pirate ship in Kewalo Bay


Family shot in downtown Waikiki


Hiking to Manoa Falls


Pearl Harbor



Polynesian Cultural Center


Obligatory PhotoShop of me surfing with a shark at North Shore


Swimming with the turtles in Turtle Canyon offshore from Waikik Beach


Very beautiful and relaxing. I had been before but Teresa and the girls had not. It was fun to see it for the first time through their eyes.

Jon, Matt, Wendy - thank you so much

I have stood on the shoulders of a giant (
UncleTrav) and made a miniature tiki hut. I needed a miniature for a photo shoot and Trav had already done all the hard work of researching and documenting the techniques. This is just a quick and disposible hut, not nearly the amazing detail of Trav's. SPOILER ALERT! - there is a foul wind blowing and I smell disater in the air. I fear things will not end well for MadDog Mike's Tiki Hut

Some shellac help the coloring and tamed down the thatch. It will look better when it's sitting on a sand "beach" that blends seamlessly into the background

Mike, great photos, and great mini-MDM hut! I look forward to seeing mechanized miniatures of you & Teresa around it!

Are you guys heading to SD for Oasis?

I'm no giant Mike. You can see that by all of my mini builds. Your hut looks awesome !!! Can't wait to see the photo shoot. Thanks so much for the kind words and keep up the good work.

Mike and Teresa in paradise. The house is leaning so you better work on that or you'll keep rolling out of bed! Wendy

I didn't know Teresa was a teacher too. I've never taught 1st but I previously taught kindergarten, 3rd and 4th. Now I have it easy and teach 5th graders technology.

Anyhow, thanks for posting the honeymoon pics. I saw some on FB but you can never see enough.

Happy Birthday! (again)
