FIRST PHOTO: Donald and Mina Chaikin of Kihei stroll the grounds of the Emmanuel Lutheran 20th annual Pumpkin Fest on Friday in Kahului with twin sons, Lui and Sky. The couple said that the job of raising twin sons takes additional planning and work. “Sixteen months have gone by a blink,” Donald Chaikin said. “A blink of exhaustion.”
