Looking for the aloha in life

Day 3 Fun in the Sun

Leave a comment

We were up early today thanks to my internal clock and Dan’s alarm. He went surfing with friends this morning and while I stayed back to write and get in a workout, I loved peering out on our little lanai to see all the surfers below, knowing he was in the bunch.

He’s out there somewhere in that water!

We then drove about a mile to stand in line for 45 minutes at Leonard’s, a bakery that’s famous for its malasadas… or Portuguese donuts. They were so worth the calories. Especially the Macadamia nut cream filled one!

While we were in line, Dan got an email from his teacher and realized he needed to chat with him and turn in an extra credit assignment. So back we went to the condo to get some work done. I did get to listen in on his conversation with his calculus professor and it warmed my heart. I’m so glad Dan has had the chance to learn from him these last two quarters and it was clear they had a great relationship!

After the sugar rush had died down and the work was done, we drove our little Kia Rio back out to our new favorite beach, Lanikai, ready to relax and enjoy the warm sun. We spent the afternoon lounging, walking, snorkeling chatting, and cloud watching. It was definitely the most relaxed I’ve been since the pandemic started.

A quick poke stop in Kailua for my still growing son.

I can’t say that our evening was all that interesting though… by the time we got back to the condo (after a poke stop for my fish-loving boy) we were too tired to go out so we ordered a pizza… boring, I know!

But it was most definitely another wonderful day on the island!

I'm a mom living in Texas trying to find the aloha spirit in everyday life with my husband and 2 teenagers. Until I can retire in Hawaii, I will continue to love good old fashioned walks with my dog, dabble in home decor, and pretend to play the ukulele. I am passionate about my family, music, and supporting other families, like ours, who have kids with Down Syndrome.
