I think that is a WONDERFUL way to celebrate 90 years! Surround by family, relaxing, and beach beverages! We're getting ready to celebrate my very special aunts 80th birthday. I'll have to tell her about this

P.S. I especially loved your music today:)

Wow! that is so awesome!!! I so want to visit Hawaii some day. I hope I do not have to wait until someone's 90th birthday before I get there though. But that is just awesome that your grandma got to celebrate 90 years of living in such a beautiful place.
