First of all, thank you to those of you who commented on my ultrasound post last week. Prior to writing the post, I was mostly focusing on the negatives. I guess once I got that all out, I realized that things won’t necessarily be so bad. A c-section is honestly the least of my worries. I just want a healthy normal baby, which is entirely possible, no matter what it looks like the ultrasound shows.
Anyway, a couple of John’s fraternity brothers have been here since Wednesday night, which has helped keep my mind off of baby things. Except for the fact that I feel like I’m the size of a baby hippopotamus and I can’t sit comfortably unless my legs are wide open. Those things are constantly on my mind. Along with not being able to breathe and constantly peeing myself. #sorrynotsorry
Since the guys have been here, we’ve gone out and done a handful of the touristy things that there are to do in Hawaii. Even though we’ve lived here for over six months, many of these were firsts for us also. Having visitors is quickly helping me cross off items from my Hawaiian bucket list. The guys did their research before arriving, so there hasn’t been a shortage of things to do. In fact, I’m looking forward to resting and doing nothing when they leave.
Thursday started out on the other side of the island at the Spitting Caves, a place I had no idea even existed. We continued touring the windward side of the island before calling it a day just in time for the Heat game. After traveling all day the day before, the boys were exhausted.
Friday evening we went to a luau at Paradise Cove. I was extremely impressed with everything that they had going on. When we first got there, there were a bunch of activities for the entire family to participate in. Then there were a couple demonstrations, followed by dinner and the performances. Eventually, I’ll get around to posting a full review of the entire experience. It was a long night, but there was never a dull moment.
Saturday was a boys’ day. They did a hike in the morning, followed by a US soccer game, and then some more sightseeing. I was home all day with the girls. By the time they made it back, I was rather annoyed so I’m not even quite sure what they spent the day touring.
Yesterday we attempted to cram a bunch of activities into the day. After we left the house around 10 am, we didn’t return until about 8 pm. The day was spent in the sun, so although I’m definitely getting closer to achieving that sweet tan that I was hoping for, this momma was exhausted. My girls were troopers the entire day, but knocked out as soon as we hit the highway on our way home.
Since today is the boys’ last day here, we’re going to attempt to squeeze in a few more must do’s, without getting too crazy.
I will never know how tourists come all the way out here and have an enjoyable time… There is SO MUCH to do and it doesn’t seem like much time to do it all in. Add to that, the fact that East Coasters are attempting to adapt to the six hour time difference. No way I could do it! As it is, it took us close to two weeks to adjust to the time difference when we moved here, and we weren’t even out doing tiring activities all day.
