So an entire year of nonsense. Who would have thought? Honestly, I have NEVER been one who has been able to keep up a diary or journal – and Lord knows I am not a writer – so I am pretty proud of the fact that 180-some posts later I am still enjoying this.
I am only kicking myself for not starting sooner. I’ve been reading blogs for years and was very intimidated. Finally decided to jump right in and I am so happy I have. I hope that people reading get a peek at our life and maybe learn a little about living in Spain or Hawaii.
So onto our day today!
Veteran’s Day so the kids were out of school. Once again I am sitting there wracking my brain trying to find something fun to do. I have to try and force my children out of the house or else we will never go anywhere, become hermits and I’ll never shave my legs again.
So google, various military wives forums and bingo, out to MCBH to hit up their Tiki Island. I love this side of the island, it is just so beautiful and EVERY time I come out of the tunnel I just can’t believe I get to live here!
Started off with a little mini golf. Omar had never played before, and it was only a tiny bit frustrating to try and get him to hold the dang club the right way! There weren’t too many people there so it was great.
Here is Omar after hitting his hole in one. Guess he caught on pretty quickly, he was the only one to get one!
After a round of mini golf we hit up the bumper boats. Oh. My. Goodness. I don’t know when I last laughed that hard.
The boats have squirt guns on them. We were soaked.
Adios Tiki Island! If you go do boats first so you can dry off during golf!
After that I drove around the base a bit, ending up driving up this hill? Not sure if it was legal or whatever, but there were no signs and no one stopped us. And the view was spectacular!
We ended up having a great day (after a mandatory commissary run that was painless! A miracle!).
On to a busy week, thankfully it’s a short one!
