We had a few things planned for Sunday. All were close by (meaning no long distance driving with 10 people in one car… once was enough!). We were headed to our favorite little cafe down on the beach for breakfast. However, after our Saturday craziness in the Tonga Lei Room with the screeching monkeys and mocking littles, Matt decided that he would stay home with the trio so that Kerri could maybe enjoy ONE meal in peace. I didn’t argue with him this time!
While Kerri and I were getting ready, Matt fed the littles (and Holt) breakfast. I came down to find the four of them sitting at the bar like this…
Not a flattering shot of any of them, but I wanted to point out that they were all dressed very similarly… by sheer coincidence! All four of them had on brown shirts with camouflage shorts. I came down and called them my ‘quads’! (Lord help me…)
Kerri, Noah, Eli, Hailey, Holt, and myself headed out for breakfast. (Yes, Holt was going to get to eat twice…). We had about an hour wait, just like we did on Father’s Day. This is the one place where the kids WANT there to be a long wait. We let them four of them play in the sand and surf while we waited on our table. They had a blast. They were taking turns burying each other’s legs. Cheap, easy entertainment!
This shot is my favorite…
A close second…
We finally made it to our table and ate ourselves silly. YUM! Afterwards we headed back to the house to pick up Matt and the littles. We had a boat to catch! We didn’t have much time, but we managed to pack some PB&J’s and a few other snacks. We rented a little boat to tool around on in Balboa Island.
Here’s a shot of all the kids (except for Luke). They were waiting on our boat. See what I mean about the matching outfits???
A few shots from our excursion…
See this boat?
Take a closer look…. Just how CUTE is this guy??? We actually saw several seals that day. Love them!
The boat ride ended up being more fun for the adults than the kids. The littles enjoyed themselves, but they ate the entire time we were out. The bigger kids grew tired of it after a few minutes. After that they wanted to go back to the beach, complained about their life jackets, etc. Go figure. We had rented the boat for 2 hours, but ended up taking it in a few minutes early.
Here’s a quick shot of Kerri with her kiddos from the afternoon beach trip.
