So we had some friends coming to stay with us, our beloved friends the Beans, so we decided to get an upgrade and add a pool to our house. Its awesome. There might not be laps swam in the pool, but many laps around the pool. Hours of fun for small people. I love this picture of Jayne with her Barbie. I caught her out there talking and singing with it. How fun it is to be Jayne. Such a good happy life.
Our pool addition is just right for the Jake man. He's is the one doing laps around and around it. I love that little smiley face he has. He did dunks in the pool with Jayne as well.
The Beans are great! Rose and Tim had escaped for the week on the Big Island, and they were only going to be on Oahu for one day, Sunday. But at the last minute, they changed their flight to fly in on Saturday so that they could play with us all day. Rose goes by Grandma Rose by Jakey. We all adore her. We got to take her to some of our favorite places, like Lani Beach, where the turtle come on to the beach to sun bathe.
Here are Tim and Rose.
After Turtle Beach, we made our way to Halewia for lunch. We had heard there was this awesome new Thai place called Opal Thai, that we decided to try out. It was quite the experience. We came in and were sat by a 7 year old, the son of the owner, Opal. Then Opal, came to take our order. We said me needed a recommendation. From there he started to take our menus. We kind of just raised our eye brows and looked at each other, like, "okay." He then asked us what kind of meats, spices, and veggies we liked. Then he walked away. We all started laughing. Tim said, "Well this is going to be an experience." Then the food started coming. It was too good. I can't even tell you. I loved all of it. And I'm not exaggerating. So good. We all left with a smile on our face and full bellies.
But if you are in Halewia, or anywhere within 20 miles of it, it only means one thing- Shave Ice! Matsumotos was hit again. We always leave there a bit stickier and sugered than before we came, but always glad we stopped. I think its the ice cream in the bottom that makes it.
