From Daddy: We had so much fun at Shaver Lake last weekend!
From Daddy: He received another swimming achievement award at swimming class today! Click below or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qh6bByo6QWM to see him receive it.
He’s doing great!
We got a 50-cent Frosty at Wendy’s and did a bit of shopping.
The Day Before Yesterday
Swimming practice paid off at a swimming play date with friends!
He still won’t dive. I hope that he dives like them below (or click https://youtu.be/SMkQmueVd1E)
Two Week Ago
He left his homework at school. Fortunately a friend’s mom sent a copy!
From Daddy: This morning, we took a friend to IHOP for breakfast, then played at the playground, and then to his house for fun!
Here’s a conversation in the car ride from IHOP to the playground:
Friend: “Are you as bored as I am?”
Beanie: “How bored are you?”
Friend: “Pretty bored. Are you bored?”
Beanie: “No, just relaxed.”
We had a fun walk with some friends, then walked on the beach, and then had another playdate.
Four Weeks Ago
I just found notes from his birthday party four weeks ago. These were notes for coming up with obstacles for his obstacle course which come together that morning:
Train table crawl
Spike ball into clown car
Koopa shell brick wall mission
Fireball / piranha plant
Ice Flower / piranha plant
Coin to unlock the door
- Black construction paper
- Masking tape
- Printing of Bowser Jr.
From Daddy: We had a very big family gathering tonight to celebrate Vickie Goo-Goo. See the fish above!
The fog rolled in during my drive home from work yesterday (click above or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G38XVxhKu6w. When I got home, the boy wanted me to record the following for his friend during this week’s Camp Edmo (click below or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6zFj67UaYW4).
Here are the photos that Dole wanted us to buy!
(or click https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mv-blbU9ii4 to watch him play with an instrument banana, parade a bit, pose, and receive a birthday song)
From Daddy: On our last full day in Hawaii, we drove to the Disney resort and spa Aulani to enjoy a character breakfast with Stitch, Chip, and Dale.
Afterward, we did finally make it to the USS Arizona Memorial.
That afternoon, fun in the sun.
That night, dinner and dessert at Little Noodle Village House.
The Next Morning
From Daddy: On our driving tour of Oahu, one of our stops was the Halona Blowhole Lookout.
Later, we stopped at Makapu’u Lookout, a ridge with an amazing view.
Mānana Island is called “Rabbit Island” because it looks like a rabbit’s head. I didn’t see the resemblance. The nearer island is supposed to resemble a shark’s fin.
Next, Waimānalo Beach. The audio tour called the parking area “Sherwood Forest” because of the high theft rate (of the rich to give to the poor? Maybe that just romanticizing the crime…)
We got splashed by a big wave at the beach; that was no fun!
Next, a quick stop at the bronze statue of Akebono (which was cordoned off because it recently fell) and then a late lunch at Uahi Grill, seen on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. Cousin ordered a very yummy Furikake Tofu Sandwich. I ordered the Red Curry Grilled Fish.
Later, boats and water at Lanikai Beach.
Next, Nu’uanu Pali Lookout
After this, we headed back to the hotel.
In the Morning
