Kamehana Tachera, 11, pushes her sister, Nahe, 9, on a swing at Kahua Ranch in North Kohala, Hawaii, where their father, Wayne, is employed as a cowboy.  The girls' great-grandfather, grandfather and father are or were all cowboys and they live in "cowboy housing" on the ranch.  The girls learned to ride horses as toddlers and have grown up with the ranch as their playground. "It's beautiful up here.  Not many children get to see this lifestyle," says Kamehana.
