In case you thought I was kidding about the unchanging breakfast in yesterday’s post, here’s this morning’s fare. Dang we’re predictable…
The girls had the chance to do another volunteer shift at the animal shelter today and didn’t want to skip it even for pool time. So we got dressed in real shoes this morn and headed on over. The dogs were ecstatic to see Ro and Ree holding leashes.
I wanted to take this little sweetie home in my suitcase. I hope he finds a home really soon.
Afterwards we went in search of lunch and ended up at the Marriott resort. Whoooeeee, that place is just stunning.
I snapped a quick family pic in one of their enormous mirrors. I think it might be the first pic this trip of the four of us together? Whoa, the girls look awfully tall in this shot. Let’s just call it a trick mirror, because there is no way my babies are that big.
They gave us a pager at Duke’s Barefoot Bar and we plopped down in the sand to wait for our table. Gee, what a hardship to sit and stare at this:
The view from the table was just as nice. I think this has been the best food view so far.
Why yes those are lava flows and POG juices. Thank you very much.
This funny character instinctively recognized that Ro and Ree are both softies and rule breakers (a rare combo) and moseyed right up to our table for some illicit tortilla scraps. He didn’t go away hungry…
I was stuffed and could barely move after my delish fish sandwich and multiple lava flows, but the girls were still perky enough to dance all the way to the car.
By the way, after fighting incredibly loudly over scraps of paper and leaves (really), I look over in the parking lot on the way to the car and catch them doing this:
Whatever… Oh, that reminds me, I also got a picture of these pine trees in the parking lot. They’re all over the island and look like Dr. Seuss trees. Anyone know what they are? Just love these wacky things.
PS: One funny story from yesterday that TubaDad just told me. Ro was dying to get this big, expensive crystal tree in one of the stores and TubaDad said “Ok, I’ll buy you that one and then hang on to it for the rest of the trip and give it to you if you don’t fight with your sister.” Without missing a beat she grabbed a smaller one and said “How ‘bout I get this one instead?”
