What is better than a bridal shower? Being in a group of women, eating food, and opening gifts is one of the best ways to spend an afternoon. Yesterday we did just that. We celebrated my soon-to-be daughter in law with lunch at Bucca’s. We played some fun games and ate until we were stuffed.
Here’s the Bride and her bridal party along with flower girls.
I’m so blessed to have a daughter-in-law who is an amazing mommy to my granddaughter and grandson on the way. Stay tuned for some pics from the wedding!!!!
When I’m at the beach I love to read a good book. I find me a nice space in the shade and get comfy with my book. This week the kids really wanted to go to the beach, so we took a little drive to the North Shore. The weather was perfect! I chose to start Nine Perfect Strangers. I’m a huge fan of Liane Moriarty and this book did not disappoint. If you enjoy her books… you will love this one. And I have to say, it was the perfect summer/ beach read.
No one better than daddy to go to the beach with. I’ll give him that one, Im not a fan of the beach and hate the sand, so daddy wins over mommy there! He will let her bury him for hours if she wanted.
I hope you all are having a wonderful summer! I know most of us are working during the summer, but I hope everyone can find some time to do something fun!
Schools out! It’s summer. Summer means double the laundry, and the first load I do… my dryer breaks! For me this is NO BUENO! I loathe doing laundry. I will clean toilets over laundry! Maybe this is why my dryer broke? Maybe it’s asking for a little appreciation for making something I hate a lot easier for me? Well…. I’m sorry trusty dryer, please come back to life! I love you and will never take you for granted again.
Just ran over to see if it resuscitated, and nothing!
So today we are spending the day looking for a new dryer. And by golly this dryer will be loved and cared for.
My daughter loves to go to Bay View Golf Course for the mini putt and zip line. On Monday her and I shared some mother & daughter time with a round of putt putt. We had such a fun time that I actually wouldn’t mind doing it more often. Maybe this weekend the whole family can go (fingers crossed).
My daughter is very competitive so she took the game pretty serious! I beat her score on a couple of holes and it only made her more focused. A good thing for the future.
After we were done she got a bubble gun from a friend. She’s growing up so fast that it was nice to see her being young and having fun! Life is so busy and crazy that this day was a good reminder of how I must find time to do more things as a family.
Over the weekend we took our 3 year old to Ho’omaluhia in Kaneohe. She loves to go to the lake and feed the ducks and fish. Its a beautiful place and great for families to have a relaxing time without costing anything.
It’s a little bit of a walk to get down to the lake but along the way you’re shaded with trees and the chirping of birds. There’s something about being surrounded by nature and the sounds of nature that is an instantaneously calming on the spirit.
It was such a hot day! It’s been really hot and muggy here lately. We only spent about an hour before we couldn’t handle the heat any longer. On our way back we took our time and learned about some of the different plants. Aria was complaining about her legs being sore, so the lucky bugger got to ride on daddy’s shoulders.
Rachel is in her third trimester of pregnancy when she finds out her husband is having an affair with a family friend. From that sentence alone, you would think this is a serious story, but that is so far from the truth. I had moments where I was literally laughing out loud at the wittiness of the author. Reading this book, I am reminded that if you don’t laugh through the hard times you’ll break. I recommend this to anyone who wants a light read and in need of a little chuckle here and there. I do wish that this book was a little longer, I finished this book in just a few hours with breaks in between. It had me craving more.
