We woke up before the sun today

Wow, that California-time morning comes around pretty darn early when you’re in Hawaii. I think we beat the sun up by quite a few hours today…

Totally worth it though, because then we ate pineapple for breakfast on the patio staring at this:IMG_0281LR

Yeah, that didn’t suck.IMG_0283LR

The little honeys are having a wonderful time, and so are we. We took them down to the beach this morning and played around in the light rain. Ro is in the yellow dress (an upcycled Wela Wear piece) and Ree is in the blue one (also Wela Wear). I’m in the tacky Coke tee because no one made me a pretty dress. Heh.IMG_0284LR

For early dinner (or late lunch or breakfast number three or whatever the heck it was), we went to one of the restaurants at Whaler’s Village and inhaled some fish. By the time I thought to take a picture of our incredible food, this was all that was left of my dinner. Oh man I love fish.IMG_0298LR

Ro loves it too. Actually a little too much. TubaDad and I ordered an Ahi sashimi appetizer and I only got one piece.IMG_0304LR

Ree thought her coconut creme brulee was divine:IMG_0318LR

And it looked like someone might lose an arm if they came between Ro and her tropical sorbet:IMG_0319LR

Then we went and played on the beach. Well actually the girls played -- TubaDad and I sat there and digested our food. And I might as well just apologize right now for the insane amount of pictures. I just couldn’t pick a fave, and with this little Windows Live Writer app I can post them all with one click, so there’s really nothing holding me back:IMG_0325LR IMG_0331LR IMG_0341LR IMG_0344LR IMG_0355LR IMG_0362LR IMG_0374LR IMG_0375LR IMG_0382LRIMG_0376LR
