So the kids went to bed early last night and woke up early (5:45) this morning. We baked some muffins and bought some snacks at the neighborhood store, and were at the beach by 8:30. Toddlerness took a nap on the beach right away, and the older kids played themselves silly - they probably would have stayed there as long as we let them, but we left around noon. The kids rediscovered the wonder of spam musubi, apple bananas, shave ice, and taco poke. Girliness and I are sunburnt - Boyness and Toddlerness seem to have escaped. Girliness and Boyness are both rashing up something fierce and we're not sure why - hopefully we can figure it out and stop it, because the rashes seem to feel really "raw" and they hurt. Green goo rocks, but they're washing it off almost as fast as I can put it on. Back in the pool with Uncle Marty now, actually.
