Who needs Disneyland when you have Okuma just up the road, right? At least, that is what we tell our boys and for now it is enough.
A week ago, our family enjoyed 2 days up at Okuma. The weather was PERFECT! Cool on the first night, and warm the next day. In fact, I had kids in jackets and hats the evening before and swimsuits the next afternoon. Who can complain about playing in the ocean the week before Thanksgiving?
I know that most here on the island won't be too interested in a timeline of events, but for my family, let me tell you a story about a day in paradise:
The car wasn't even unloaded yet before Andrew and Dad took off to go play a round of golf. It wasn't long before Logan joined them.
After golf, we sat and enjoyed this:
Then, our good friends arrived and all the kids grouped together yelling "take our picture!!" Well, who am I to disagree on that one?
The next morning started out with bikes! See that big one? It was a doozey. ALL of us had sore legs from peddling that monster. (Oh, and see that ocean in the background? It really is that color.)
The the kids ran through a tree/bush maze and found this lurking in the branches. That was one brave momma bird because I was right next to her and she didn't fly off (because I have yet to aquire a nice lense for my camera...hint hint)
Then we did race cars:
Some of our group were VERY excited!
After lunch it was an afternoon of lounging on the beach and soaking in the rays (except for mom who hid under her umbrella...the sun hates me!).
And last but not least, we enjoyed one more sunset before driving back home (though a couple of us went kicking and screaming...not the kids).
