Sunday Funday

The nice thing about having a 70.3 next weekend is that I didn't have any big huge training days this weekend. Only about 2.5 hours each day. Funny how 2.5 hours of training is prefaced by 'only'... as in 'only' when you're ironman training is 2.5 hours short. :)

Anyway, that left me the rest of the day to play! YAY! Some of our friends set up a slip-n-slide at Lanikai Beach this afternoon so we headed over there with Moana for a fun afternoon.

Scott dug Moana her own little ocean pool to play in.


I won the Mom Of The Year award for being so careful with Moana's nutrition.

Not that it mattered. Moana just covers herself with sand when she's at the beach and has not yet decided that eating it isn't such a good idea.

She is sure there's something good in this cooler... all the adults keep coming over to grab something from the inside...

We really need to spend more days like this. They're so much fun, but I swear, sometimes I'm just too lazy to go to the beach... haul all that stuff down there and then deal with the sand everywhere and on everything... but you know what? My car and Moana's diaper bag are already full of sand, so I should really get over the sand excuse and take her there more often.

I totally get the sand everywhere thing...I need to get there more often too. It is always so much fun. Good luck next week!

That's great! I love the bottle in the sand. Brayden would eat anything covered in sand, potting soil or dust. Disgusting I know but hey, they've got to meet the dirt quota for the day, right?

Love, repeat: LOVE Moana's hat. BTW, when we were in Tahoe Nathan ate FISTFULS of sand just like Moana! Hubby was worried that the sand would upset his stomach, but after seeing several pictures of Moana eating sand hand over fist, I knew he'd be fine:> I can't imagine thinking that 2.5 hours of training wasn't much. Enjoy the DESERVED free time!

Very impressed that Moana lets you put a hat on her. And, yes, I remember that 2.5 hours on a weekend during IM training seems short. Nowadays it's a big day!

Hope you have a good day at Lake Stephens.

ha, love the bottle in the sand pic. I remember as kids our parents would take us to the beach a lot - and everything would get that nice coating of sand...I'm sure it's good roughage if swallowed ;)
