Another day in Hawaii.
My Saturday started off with a run in the craziest weather. I left for my run and got in about .2 miles when it started POURING rain = I ran right back to the house. I waited there for it to stop raining (it lasted about 3 minutes) before leaving again in complete sunshine. Followed by crazy wind and then more rain. On repeat… 6.3 miles for the day and 40.3 miles for the week. Next week I will be a bit lower again in my mileage but then I will bump it back up to the 50 range leading to my next half marathon.
And it looked like I had gone into a waterfall when I got back to the house.
After my run we were off. Brooke asked to wear her hat (if you remember, it is the one thing she asked for for her 3rd birthday) because of the rain.
I was SO excited to see one of my very best friends. We go way back… we met in our 8th grade sewing classes and sat next to each other. She helped me to sew the tennis skirt I was making and we have been close ever since. I don’t love that she lives so far away now but seeing her in Hawaii is pretty great.
The best pancakes I have ever had. Ever. Boots & Kimo’s was worth the 50 minute wait for the Macadamia Nut Sauce on banana pancakes. I will dream about these for a very long time. If you are ever in Kailua, please go here.
We stopped at Target for some supplies for our next adventure at the beach. The kids are both obsessed with ‘buried treasure’ so we bought a little treasure for them to find on the beach.
X marks the spot.
They dug for a little while to find their treasures and they were pretty excited about it. PS for every parenting success I have, I feel like I have like 20 parenting fails ha.
They ran for a long time.
And played for a while until….
I was standing next to Brooke in the water and all of the sudden she started screaming (the scariest scream I have ever heard her do). She held up her hand to me with the saddest look on her face and we realized that it was a jellyfish. We ripped it off of her hand but she was in pain for a bit. We washed it off in the salt water and then took her back to the house to rest for a few hours.
We kept a close eye on her and before we knew it she was back to herself again.
We told the kids that morning we would go get a snow cone and once Brooke was feeling better she asked to go.
We then went back to the house and rested for the rest of the day.
I hope you have a beautiful Sunday!
Ever been stung by a jellyfish?
Can you sew?
What is the best part of your Sunday going to be?
