Today was a beautiful, sunny day.

My sister and I packed the kids in the truck…

and headed off to Ala Moana beach.

Friday Funday: Shopping Expedition

It’s tropical storm season here in Hawaii and we just had our first storm of the summer pass through. It was kind of a let down…little rain or wind.

What it DID bring was heat.




Today I packed the kids in the car (air conditioning!) and we headed off to Pearlridge Shopping Center (air conditioning!). They had some allowance money to spend, and I didn’t feel like playing the hero and taking them to the zoo (NO air conditioning!) or even the aquarium (BROKEN air conditioning!). So we went to the mall.

Emma bought a DS game (yes, I let my kids watch t.v. and play video games!).

Gracie bought a pair of fancy, smanshy white dress shoes ($5 at Payless!).

Judah tried unsuccessfully to pull everything off the shelves as we strolled by.

Momma got a chocolate-dipped shortbread cookie at Cookie Corner (the best part–they dip the WHOLE COOKIE).

We got Wendy’s on the way home.

The girls played Wii while Judah and I napped.

It was, indeed, a fun day!

Not-So-Fun Friday

My plans for Family Funday fell through when I realized that I had

at least 8 loads of laundry to do…

And two sink-fulls of dishes…

And sheets to change…

And rubbish to empty and take outside…

And a bathroom toilet to scrub…

And an entire house to vacuum.


Oh, well. At least Friday comes along every seven days!

We’ll try again next week.
