I have been really late posting these pictures and blogging. We have had two really great weekends. The sun has been out and we have taken advantage of it. Last weekend we attended a birthday party for a pair of twins at the local Yacht club. Bring a bathing suit, they told us. So we did. And what fun we had. There was pizza, chips, ice cream, cake, chips, veggies and dip, and some chex mix. Mostly this was an excuse for us to have a good time and go swimming. Although it was really fun swimming with Gavin and eating and playing in the pool, the highlight for me was seeing Holly in a bikini. Man she is lookin’ good. Take a look at some of the pictures from our Yacht Club party. We totally had a good time. And Holly looked really good.
This past weekend we took advantage of living in Hawaii and went to the beach. It was such a great day. Holly grabbed her bikini, I my shorts, and Gavin his. We hopped in the car and off we went. We spent a while at Ala Moana beach park playing in the sand and lying in the sun. We have to work on our tans don’tcha know. Gavin found some other kids to play with for a while. They borrowed all his little toys. I volunteered to be partly burried in the sand, but ended up doing it all myself. I was transformed into a merman. After some good frying and playing and swimming, we headed over to Ala Moana Mall to do some shopping and roaming around. Gavin fell asleep in his stroller, leaving mom and dad to stroll around leisurely and window shop. Mike: “You know what I really want? A yummy brownie topped with hot fudge and ice cream and whipped cream.” Holly: “You have been wanting that for a while. We can get you one you know.” After hitting a few more stores and bumping into one of Holly’s old high school mates (who apparently got better looking with time and at one time called Holly fat when she was a 16 year old buff swimmer), we ended up at a place called “Island Burgers”. This just made the day that much better. The burgers were amazing. The fries could have fed 4. And the brownie desert was… well, only a few notches down from the evening finale. We spent a total of 8 hours out on the town. Our skin tone darkened by one or two notches with the help of some tanning oil and SPF 50. When we arrived home, Holly’s aunt and little cousin Chris were at our house; apparently for about 5 or 6 hours. Gavin and Chris were so excited to see each other and play for the next hour or two. They had a blast. With Mary and Beth watching the wee ones, Holly and I snuck upstairs to “download pictures from the day”. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge. ( I just downloaded the pics today. lol ) It was so nice to be able to have a family day and not have to worry about the theatre (so glad I quit) or Karatedepot or mother-in-laws or anything like that. What a great day. Check out some pictures from our outing.
