As we were driving to the beach yesterday, I taught Moana a new word... Referee. I explained that she had been voted to act as the official Referee of this special June Birthday Beer Swim/Run event, which meant that she was in charge of the rules, and that she could award points to anyone for pretty much anything she liked. Not surprisingly, she took to this role like a champ. As soon as she saw Kurt's rainbow goggles, she immediately awarded him 10 points!
I should go back... a few weeks ago we started planning for this June Birthday Beach and Beer Bash via private messaging on Facebook. Nalani, Kim, and Lectie all have June birthdays so we thought an ocean swim and run involving beer would be a fun way to celebrate... It evolved over time until at some point Nalani created this official event flyer describing the "rules" we had come up with. I'll note, we weren't even drunk when we came up with these rules!
So the afternoon went something like this: Scott and Moana paddled out to Flat Island with a cooler full of beer. (We are good parents, I swear) It's only like maybe 400M from shore and water shallow enough we could stand at any point.
On shore we chugged beer #2 then headed off on the 'run' portion of the event. Nikki pulled on her pink tutu and Moana was simply beside herself, immediately awarding Nikki 100 points!
