P1010040  We had fun talking about which animals have whiskers, then decided we really should have some, too! Gramma, mommy and Sammy all had whiskers on when Dave arrived home. Think we got some on him???? P1010044  A morning at the tide pools - such a great place for Sam to play. Lots of other little kids there this morning. P1010042 P1010048

IMGP2653  "Happy hour" at the tide pools. This has become a Friday tradition, and this time we were joined by neighbors Ronnie and Giji and their 2 1/2 yr old boy Jonah. We had a great time swimming, then enjoyed pizza that Dave brought and chocolate chip cookies that Ronnie baked. IMGP2658 IMGP2661  You can't tell...but Giji is expecting!!! IMGP2662

He makes oatmeal, coffee, raisin bran, etc. for 2 hrs - by the time we leave I am famished after playing along! We take a swim, look for more turtles then either have a lunch "date" in Haleiwa or picnic on the beach before heading home. IMGP2768  Dear friends Angel and Mike invited us to celebrate their 17th weddding anniversary at a private jazz club above someone's home. It was really cool.
IMGP2784  Sammy and I visited story time on base, then made a craft. IMGP2785  Taking Caff to the beach on the base. IMGP2786  BIG crab...I was filming this guy up really close as he scurried, then I felt something on my foot. I totally wigged while the camera was still running. I edited that part out :) ha ha! ATT00051  Sammy riding his bike at the beach park. He's gotten pedaling and steering down well enough he toured all around the park and didn't want to turn around to go home!  Here he's pulling tricks already  - no hands!
