a bird pooped on me today...

There.  Now I can rub it in that we went to the beach again today!  This time to Lanikai beach, just next door to Kailua beach.  Hurley from Lost lives in Lanikai, Michelle Pfeiffer has a house in Lanikai, and Evangeline Lilly (Kate from Lost) burnt down her house in Lanikai.  No star sighting today.  It was very cloudy and windy today, so it was chilly.  At least enough to wrap a towel around my shoulders - no need to feel sorry for me, nothing was going to actually freeze off!  LOL!

The picture above clearly shows what the boys did.  They dug a hole.  And filled it with water.  They called it their jacuzzi.  He-he!  Kids are so funny.  Jake is actually kneeling in the hole, but when I first saw him, I thought he was standing in it!  You can see Patrick is wearing a yellow shirt.  Kids these days wear these swim shirts - I guess surfers started wearing them?  Anyway, it's the cool thing to do.  And I love it!  Keeps the bulk of skin safe from the sun.  Obviously I need to get my little pale skinned children some.  And I love that it helps keep the girls modest.  I just really cringe when I see the little 2 year olds wearing string bikinis.  Makes me wonder what the H the parents are thinking??

Yesterday we did not make it to the zoo.  I lapped the parking lot 6 times, but there just wasn't any place to park, there or on the street.  So, after wandering all over the streets of Honolulu (the streets in Hawaii are NOT made for tourists, despite this being a tourist destination), I finally found my way onto H1 going in the easterly direction and made it to Sea Life Park.  It was fine, but not for the price.  It's geared towards "interactive" venues.  Swimming with the dolphins and that sort of thing.  If I were a tourist, I would skip this attraction, unless you have money to blow and are dying to feed the skate.  I hope I don't get sued for that.  It's just my opinion!  The boys loved it. 

We met Gary for lunch today.  Before that I got two calls asking us to go to the beach!  I feel so popular!  LOL!  So we made it in time to go with the first invite.  I tried calling the second invite, but they must've already been gone somewhere.  I'll call her tomorrow and see if we can set something up.  I never did playdates when the boys were little, so this is new and fun for me!

I'm sleepy.  I think just being at the beach tires you out.  I didn't swim.  I'm not about to put on a bathing suit yet.  It's not really about the boobs, but that is my convenient excuse.  It's the tummy.  It's always about the tummy!

Just a few more days of spring break left.  I don't think two weeks is all that bad.  The beach does help soften the blow.  <smile>

My kids would love to live near the beach. The kids are cute. Love that shirt it looks like a cool thing to go around wearing. Ah poo listen to you complaining about the tummy. I have a tummy and boobs are refuse to put on a suit maybe it's a good thing I don't live near the beach I scare people away. LoL. We haven't had spring break yet it's in a couple of weeks.
Take care, Chrissie

I hope it wasn't a big bird. Your boys are so lucky to be able to have the beach for a playground!  I thought he was standing in the hole! lolol! You know what? It is all about the tummy. I am the same way!
