David Tribble, right, takes a picture of his wife, Catherine, and
sons Aidan, 2, and Connor, 6 months, in front of the sand sculpture
at Pearlridge Center. Fifty tons of pure Hawaiian sand transform
Pearlridge into a railway station of old. Hawaii's largest sand
sculpture, created by sand artist Todd Vander Pluym, is celebrating
its fifth year as the centerpiece of Pearlridge's holiday activities.
Past holidays have featured an undersea Christmas,
Santa scenes and an elf village.
