What do you do when you wake up at 2:30 AM and can't go back to sleep because it is really 7:30 to you?
1. Eat a banana while setting your failure of a fantasy football team
2. Bake cookies
3. Drive to a place in the dark to watch the NFL games.
We went to Giovani's Pastrimi in downtown Waikiki and shared a delicious pastrami sandwich.
Our morning had a sad ending.
But, we soon forgot about the bad morning with the beautiful plants and views while walking around Waikiki Beach.
Next we went to the Aloha Stadium swap meet and found quite a few things we couldn't live without.
Dan bought some Hawaiian shirts made by this guy.
Teresa and Gordon bought Margaret her first quilt. Isn't that adorable?;
After shopping we built up an appetite and went to Uncle's fish market.
The blackened mahi mahi was just as tasty as I remembered it four years ago.
After lunch we finally had a second to throw our swim suits on and head to the beach.
Margaret was so excited for her first time in the ocean. She gave a few extra kicks to tell me so.
Dan and I had a great time watching kids around us play in the water and build sand castles.
And talk about how we will be designing crazy castles with our kids soon enough.
The night ended with a fireworks show at the beach.
Dan, his mom, his uncle (who lives in Hawaii) and his grandma.
It is now 10:30 Hawaii time. I don't even stay up that late Kansas City time. I would consider that a win! Have a good week!
