You know I’m drunk when I start repeating the same prompts every week. Between this week and last week it looks like I’m just REALLY needing movie recommendations right now because I’ve asked for reviews twice in a row.
Unfortunately I don’t watch enough movies to care to answer that prompt…although we DID see Maleficent and I would go back and watch it again this instant. By myself, with a stranger…I don’t care, it was that good!
Today I’m recapping how we spent the first day of Summer. Last week I talked about the last time we visited Hawaii so I thought it would only make sense to follow up with the trip we’re taking. Our first day of Summer was spent at the beach that used to be Pat’s grandmother’s homestead. The land has since been purchased by Paul Allen, but the remains of her home were still there.
I wonder what it was like to grow up there years ago, running down that path to the beach. Rumor has it that when she was called in to do chores, Pat’s grandma would sneak out into the ocean to avoid the work.
I wonder if she ever in her wildest dreams imagined that one day she would have 11 children and of those 11 children one of them would have11 of her own, and of those 11 one would marry a white girl from Seattle and they would have 3 kids (because 11 is crayzee) of their own and would spend a day walking her coastline and posting about the experience to her blog.
One thing I know for sure, the family reunions on Pat’s side of the family are way more interesting (and warm and fun and tropical) than the family reunions on my side of the family. The family reunions on my side of the family are also non-existent so he’s got me beat on a number of levels.
I’d say we really set the bar for future first days of summer (minus the sun poisoning), not sure how we’re going to beat this next year.
Now it’s your turn!
