Good Morning! May 22, 2013

Each of our Hawaiian mornings began like this. Adele waking up at 6:30a for a quick cup of milk before heading back to bed for another 3 hours. The sun was just starting to show it’s glow, the resort was sleepy and the mischievous cats were roaming the backyard. Just wanted to post a few pictures to capture how perfect it was. It’s these little moments I treasure the most in life.

One more Poolside Photo Recap post for ya! Just a collection of some photos from the week.

First up… pictures from the Golf Clubhouse where we met daddy for lunch one day! He had a golf PR (is that a thing?) that morning! Best round he’s ever played!

We found a patch of grass and set up shop one afternoon. Irving and I took turns on baby duty while the other one read magazines and books. Heaven. Adele just played with a shovel. ha!

This picture is so funny because Adele is TERRIFIED of grass. She won’t go near it unless she absolutely has to. She kept peeking under the towel to check to see if it was still there. Spoiler Alert: it was!

Of course, when it was my turn to read, I couldn’t peel my eyes away from these two.

Don’t worry, I had Adele safely on land when Irving did a little waterfall dive here!

Another snack! Each one of these little puffs is 1/3 calorie! I don’t really mind if she has a handful here or there. They’re more of a distraction than anything else really.

Awe, daddy loves!

So apparently there are goats on the resort property? Kind of random, no?

Are you guys sick of Hawaii pictures yet? Few more posts and I’m done, sorry!

Adele looks too cute in her bathing suit, so I have to just do a photo dump again to share all these pictures! These were taken in our hotel pool (which was salt water instead of chorine! So nice!) Enjoy!

Swim break for Baby Puffs!

One afternoon, Irving went golfing and I took Adele swimming solo. She is a fun swim buddy.

These stayed on for 1.2 seconds. Oh well, still cute!

Irving participated in the Water Slide Relay race (believe it or not, there were more adults than kids playing!) He won a prize too! Red Vines and a plush soccer ball for Adele!

PS… Twizzles > Red Vines in my book. Am I right?!

 

A Cloudy Sunset

On our last full night in Waikoloa, we decided to trek over to Buddha Point again for another gorgeous sunset. But the orange sky wasn’t in the cards for us, we were greeted by an unusually cloudy sky.

But we had a blast taking pictures and enjoying the warm air anyways. It’s still beautiful even without the sun here!

I think Adele must think the camera is my 5th appendage by this point.

Working on the self timer. This is where Daddy will sit. haha
IMG_2948

There we go! (PS, this was on the Waikoloa Golf Course, luckily no more golfers were playing by the time we got there!)

Family Picture! Might have to blow this one up.

Once the sun set (well, when we THINK it set… too many clouds to tell for sure!) we headed out for late-ish dinner down the street. Adele was tired, but we kept her entertained with bread and crayons.

Adele has a history of drooling after my delicious looking drinks. Case in point:

So while in Hawaii, it was no surprise that she was lusting after my Frozen Lava Flow. I don’t blame her.

I just couldn’t torture this cute little face any longer….
IMG_1818

…so I made a deal with her. Rum for mommy, pineapple for baby.
IMG_1831

IMG_1832

 

It’s safe to say… she LOVED it.

IMG_1833

IMG_1834

 

She ate it all the way to the rind! Note to self… buy pineapple at home.

IMG_1835

In other “Baby Hawaii Food News”… Adele had tastes of a non-alcoholic coconut smoothie, whipped cream from a German Chocolate Cake dessert, and um…. an entire half of a mango shaved ice. (She would have ate the whole thing if I’d let her).

Life’s simple pleasures, right?

 

Baby’s First Hula Show

We didn’t think an authentic Luau would be worth it this time since Adele is so young, but our hotel offered a free Hula show, how could you go wrong! She loved the loud music and colorful dancers. Aloha!

A Morning in Downtown Kona May 14, 2013

Halfway through our trip, we took a morning to explore downtown Kona. It was so sticky-humid-hot, but it was nice to walk around down there. Kona is where the big Ironman Triathlon takes place!

I stopped to get an Iced (Kona) Coffee as we looked at the boats in the harbor. (HAHA Adele is totally eyeing my drink! Sorry, sweetheart, mommy doesn’t share the good stuff.

I am totally impressed that Adele didn’t attempt to eat or destroy her little lei!
