The weekends have taken on a whole new meaning since Jeff started working a 'real' 9-5 job (actually 8-4:30). Although we always seem to have chores and errands to run, we have really been making quality family time a priority.
Yesterday was HOT. Seriously. 33 Celcius which translates to roughly 91 Farenheit. However, I am trying to take advantage of this increased energy before Lily comes and I turn into a zombie so I got up and made Crepes! I've never done them before but they turned out amazing (a little on the thick side, but practice makes perfect). We had Nashi Pears from our neighbors tree (best neighbors ever!) so I made warmed pear with cinnamon, strawberries with sugar and had 2 kinds of yogurt to have in the crepes. We weren't sure how John would react, but I think the pictures speak for themselves... he ate more than I did!
After breakfast we went over to Waikawa Bay where the boat is and Jeff did some chores aboard while John and I played at the park. We ran into some friends there and made plans to meet later in the afternoon for a swim at the beach. After lunch and a siesta we made our way back to Waikawa. Hanging out with friends at the beach was a great way to spend the afternoon! John has been making great progress with his confidence swimming, he went all the way up to his armpits in the water and even went underwater without drinking the seawater (yes, the underwater part was an accident). Our friends brought their kayak down to the beach with them and Jeff took John out for a paddle, the wind had picked up considerably but he had a good time.
I wish I could say we all slept well last night, but John ended up with a fever and it was too hot to sleep well anyways... Oh well. It has cooled down a lot today, with a high of just 24C (75F) so unless Lily decides to make some progress tonight I'll be catching up on my sleep!
A Whale of a Tale (and other animal encounters) - Cruising in the Pacific offered Jeff and I some pretty amazing encounters with marine life. We had a few in the Caribbean as well, but it was in the Paci...
