Micronaxx The adventures of Finn & Henry

Sugar Cane Train

Train-loving Hen was really hyped to check out the once-popular Sugar Cane Train. This narrow-gauge ("Two feet six inches!" Hen would interject) system would take tourists on a leisurely 6-mile crawl across Maui. Sadly, train service is on hiatus, but undeterred, our little train enthusiast wanted to check out the train cars & buildings we could glimpse from the road. Grandma Nack was a great sport (just as she'd been in my childhood, indulging me in so many explorations) and joined us in sneaking around the private property just a bit. Here's a little gallery.

¡Rocas Ígneas!

I meant to post this last May when Finn & his bilingual amigos dropped some science on the San Jose district staff. As team leader of the group focusing on igneous rocks, Finn was really dedicated to creating a great poster & presentation—to the point that he skipped Take Your Kid To Work Day at Google so that he could ensure they finished the job properly. Here's a little taste of how things turned out:

Leprechauns & Captains & Mustaches, Oh My!

You know what's kinda great? Having fellow goofball photographers as friends. 🙂 Our buddy Michael celebrated his birthday this past weekend in part by inviting friends to dress up a bit & have him take their photos. Here's a little selection of our silly fam in action.

Storytime: “We Found A Hat”

Hot (or maybe cold?) on the heels of seeing Hawaiian turtles, Finn here reads our latest storybook, "We Found A Hat." He did it for our friend Sam, but I thought you might like it, too. 🙂

It’s “turtles all the way down”… the beach!

Okay, Hawaii is officially 🍌🍌🍌: I mean, where else can you walk outside of your room, clamber over a few boulders on the beach, and come across nearly a dozen giant, ancient sea turtles basking in the sunset glow? And yet thanks to a thoughtful neighbor giving us a heads-up, that's exactly what we discovered. Check out a few pics of the fam getting up close (but not too close!) with these old gentlemen.

Hula Hen

Our Henry is a quirky little dude: Sometimes he's super fearful in cases where Finn would rush in (e.g. snorkeling), but in others the boys' positions reverse. Here's an example of the latter, where Hen got right up on stage with Mom-O to learn some hula moves at our Hawaiian luau:
