Bellows Beach Babe

This week we went to Bellows Beach and "camped" in the cabins for two nights. This beach is one of our family's favorite beaches. Corynn was a little worried about getting in the water. Just two weeks prior, we went swimming at this beach with some friends, and she got stung by a Portuguese Man'O War. The tentacles had wrapped around her leg from mid thigh, to mid calf and left welts and blisters. She was in a lot of pain. Here is a picture of a small one we found washed up on the beach. We were lucky this time that nobody was stung.

Pampered Toes

Corynn has been wanting to go with me every time I get a pedicure. I finally gave in, and we even invited her friend Mya to come with us...just for a girls night out. We all enjoyed being pampered, and giggled together when they tickled our feet with the pumice stone. We all got Hawaiian flowers with rhinestones. Here are the final results from left to right, Mom, Corynn, and Mya.

This week was Mya's 10th birthday, so we decided to have a surprise party for her. I think some of the kids spilled the beans at school, but you still can't help being surprised when you have a bunch of girls yelling, "surprise," with horns and silly string. They had a fun couple of hours playing, dancing, jumping, yelling, get the picture. After blowing out the candles, a cake fight broke out. Whoooaa. Not in the house, girls!
Mya ended up with some serious cash. Since moving to Hawaii Corynn and Mya have been inseparable. I almost feel as though she is my 4th child. I sure love her like one of my own.

Kids For All Seasons

While vacationing in Maui, Corynn and Dallin chose to attend the keiki camp Kids for all Seasons for 2 days. They had so much fun. Who wants to drive around Maui with Mom and Dad for 2 days? Corynn loved the fish tank and bird cage with the parrots Ricky and Lucy. Her favorite activity was going to feed the fish at the resort's pond. She is my animal lovin' girl. Here is her beach scene.
Here is her hula girl, door hanger and butterfly.Here is Corynn proudly showing off her lei.

What's Cookin'?

Corynn has been refining her culinary skills lately. I bought her a kids cook-book this summer, and she has loved trying out different recipes. Here are her funny face pizzas that she made for the family one night for dinner. She enjoyed making the pizzas so much, the next night she enlisted the help of her friend Mya to help make a chicken pasta dish. Yummm....
This week she started cooking classes at the community center. Can't wait to see what she whips up next. I'd like to put in my order for chocolate cake please :)
