Triple Crown of Surfing.

That's Joel Centeio (blue shirt), a local Hawaiian pro,  with Joel Parkinson on the bottom right.

Last winter, we were big surfing competition watchers.  We still are, but the season is over for now and we just watch repeats on the Surfing Channel.  The Triple Crown competition is the biggest one, and we predicted the winner, Joel Parkinson from Australia.  Unfortunately, we only made it to the Haleiwa Pro competition (there were 2 others, but rain and low wave delays made it hard for us to go on the weekdays.)   We did make it to the North Shore on some non-competition days, though, and enjoyed days of surfing, laying on the sand, and playing in the water.

We're getting back to normal after our big trip... We made it out to the beach, and even watched a polo match this weekend.  Although realistically, I didn't end up seeing much of the game because two year-olds have the attention span, of well...two year-olds.   He got a hold of my camera again - I took his play camera along, but he's not dumb.  He wanted mami's fancy camera with all the buttons. And again, he took some pictures.  In fact, he took about 55.  I'll just show you the ones I took, for now...

The polo field is in Waialua, in the country, in between mountains and the ocean. 

We also managed to get some work done in the yard!

A budding photographer.

Little S got a hold of my camera the other day and took these pictures.  Artistic!

March 2011.

It's already May, and I noticed that I haven't posted anything in a while.  So much for keeping track of life in Hawai'i!  But in my defense, I was gone on vacation. For a month.  To Miami.  I KNOW!!  It's a tough life...but someone's gotta live it!! :)

Let's see...there was a Baby Shower, a Farewell Party, and a birthday! None of them in my honor...

...a Super Moon, a hike, the beach, and a few turtles too!

Not too shabby!

p.s. - If anyone knows how to fix my banner (and by fix it, I mean center it) please let me know! :)

I'm a wife and mama. I used to have a corporate job. I appreciate good food, a good read, and a nice bath. I currently call Hawaii "home," but I've lived in lots of other places. This blog is about things I like and notice. Kinda random, like me!
