Ka `Ohana Haugen

We're VERY proud of our growing family and we'd like to share them with you, our many friends around the world. Here are some pictures of our healthy, handsome, happy children (and their spouses), our mo`opuna (grandchildren), and our mother, Mary. Call it a page from the Haugen family album.

On the next page in this album, we will show you some of our "extended" family, including some of those who are so close that we treat them like family and that is how they treat us. Some have been friends for many years, and some are new found friends.

First a little background. Carmen traces her family back to Big Island ali`i of hundreds of years ago. And if you can believe Keith, he is the many times great grandson of Eric The Red. Ha! That's a laugh. Eric was born on March 7, 940 in Norge; Keith, on March 7, 1940 (it happened to be a Thor's Day), a thousand years later, in Minnesota (aka New Scandinavia).
