We had a few last minuite things to do like painting the hallway......
Planting some plants.......
Planting some trees
And filling up the doughboy swimming pool.
The Hamands were the first to arrive today. We hung out at the house for a few hours and then we needed to go to the recycling center and Costco so we took the scenic train route through the redwoods and even happened to get to the train crossing right when the train was passing.
With a lot of team work.....the shopping done by Courtney and me , almost all of the cooking done by Brittany and the clean up done by me and a some additional help from Michelle, we came up with this awesome Hawaiian style dinner:
Pork, jasmine rice, Hawaiian rolls:
Maitais and coconut shrimp with dipping sauce
The tropical fruit and avocado salad was my favorite part
The dessert of raspberries and bananas with homemade caramel sauce looked yummy........
We were all pretty full from dinner , but Adam was ready for dessert:
We moved down to the garage where we have two long tables with plastic tablecloths set up because we knew this was going to be messy!
Adam could not get enough...he was gobbling them down....
But Michelle managed to snag a few so she was happy!
It was now time to burn off dinner . Good thing the Hamands brought their Wiiii
I was enjoying just watching everyone else play! And folding laundry at the same time!
Now it was Courtney's turn:
( Adam was serenading us with his drum music the whole time!)
I love the way Adam looks like he is playing too in this shot. LOL
I finally decided to give it a try and I was terrible at it. Ken and I were boxing and he knocked me out cold!!
Tomorrow , we'll be going to Henry Cowell park in the morning while we wait for Luv'slilo and her family to arrive. Then we'll be heading down to the Santa Cruz Beach and Boardwalk. If anyone wants to join us, please do!! Just pm me for my cell phone number so I can tell you where to meet us!!!
