The Bunny Cookie

Happy Easter to those who celebrate. SO many more photos to post, but this must tide you over until I get some time to myself with my Mac....

Heard This Morning

Mia's at the table eating cereal. Craig was still here because he had to stop on a closer base before going to work.

"Mia's hair looks like Bon Jovi's hair first thing in the morning." (It kinda does... now that it's shorter, it actually sticks up in the morning after she's slept on it.)

I grabbed a little water spray bottle to fix it, and Mia pouts and whines. "Mooooooooommmmmm! I don't like it when you wet my hair to do that. Because then I go to school, and my friends all say, 'Eeeeeewww, you got all naked and took a shower!'"

I'm laughing and she's crying at this point.

"Mia, just tell them 'eeeeww... you don't shower?' and they'll be quiet." Although I'm pretty sure she made that up anyway because her hair will be dry by the time she gets on the bus. Just another excuse to complain. Sometimes the arguments are just ....creative.

The Fam

I have a bunch of fun pictures from the weekend, we went to Kokusai Street in Naha and to Comprehensive Park too. Though I have some interesting "stuff" pictures, I also have some family shots - this post is about that. I know you've gotten to know our crazy kid through this blog, here are a few more shots of her, one of Craig and (gasp!) even myself in some of these for a change.

Here I am with Mia, ready to enjoy a gorgeous day.

Loving my 20 chins in this one... but whatever. I think I got the pose right.

These phone booths are too cool... and I love that bright green color of the phone!

Craig bought a Pepsi from a street vendor because "Pepsi from a glass bottle tastes better" - not sure I disagree, it's pretty darn good.

After Kokusai Street we went to Comprehensive Park where Mia played on this crazy jungle gym.

The kids love it.

And then the ever popular tire swing.

As the sun was setting it was low tide and we snapped a couple by the tide pools.

More pictures in the next day or two.

Random Thought...

What kind of gifts do you think Dr. Phil gives to Oprah? What exactly says, "Thank you for giving me a life!"
