TO THE BEACH AND FONDUE

It was a beautiful sunny hot day today once again. We are unsure if it is going to rain on Thursday and Friday so we took advantage of the day and went straight to the beach. We are hoping that we get one more beach day before our vacation ends. But if not, we certainly had fun today. It was very depressing thinking that today may be our last day on the beach.

Cousins CJ and Mikey dug a large hole in the sand and put water in it. Halainah thought it was the best thing in the world. She splashed and played for hours in this sand pool. She missed her nap today because she was having so much fun. She refused to go to sleep.

We made burgers on the beach since it may be our last day. I had one last amaretto sour on the beach. We went for a long walk to collect seashells for one last time. It's so very sad but I suppose all good things must come to an end.

We all went swimming in the pool once we got home to cool off since it was so hot today. Halainah loves the water and most certainly has grown very brave on our vacation.

For dinner we ate fresh Tuna and Tile Fish that the boys caught yesterday. I even had a little and I hate seafood. But this fish did not taste fishy in the least bit.

After dinner Alyssa and Billy set up the Fondue pot with melted chocolate and all the goodies in the world to dip. Tons of fruit and graham crackers, marshmallows, pretzels, and animal crackers. We had a blast sitting around and enjoying the fondue. I am so stuffed.

We only have 2 full days left. We are sad but we are hoping for sunshine to complete our glorious vacation.

Love to all.

Halainah thinks it's funny that CJ is buried up to his neck


Giving CJ a kiss...she is so sweet

This girl is quick...turn your head for 1 second and she runs straight for the water
