There's Swimming, Then There's Swimming With The Sharks


Monday April 28 we went to Turtle Bay Resort where we had a birthday party for Aaron Jones.  The kids loved swimming and going down the slide where Aaron or Chad would catch them at the bottom.

Aaron had this system going where Eli would go down first and put him on the rocks.  Then whoever was second, either Drew or Kali, he would put on his shoulders while he caught child number three.  Then he'd carry them all to do it all over again.  Drew is usually terrified of Aaron.  He's the epitome of the Hulk but as you can see here the water makes her forget all her fears.  We hope you had a fun birthday Aaron we sure did!

Tuesday April 29th the Stimmels and us went to Ala Moana mall.  After we had a delicious dinner at the Nordstrom Bistro Leah and I checked out the Coach store while the men took the kids to look at the fish in the Koi Ponds.  This is right where they were at when we met up with them.  Leah noticed that Adi was wet and then I noticed she was crying.  Apparently the kids where getting to close to the edge so Taylor and Kurtis told them that if they fell in sharks would eat them.  I think that made Drew more curious than afraid or maybe she wanted her friend knocked off because after they embedded this into their little minds Drew pushed Adi in.  Then poor little Ella thinking that her sister was going to be eaten by sharks and maybe her next, tried to claw her way out of Taylor's grasp as he reached in immediately after she fell and pulled Adi out.  Drew stood there in shock, with the other onlookers, at the chaos that she caused.  Poor Adi will be traumatized of those Koi ponds for the rest of her life because of Drew.  The guys got a pretty good kick out of the whole situation and may I say handled it very well.  When Kurt asked Drew if she pushed in Adi, which they obviously knew she did, Drew said, with her finger in her mouth, "No...no...umm, yep.  I pushed Adi in."  I asked her later why she pushed Adi in and she said that she wanted to see Adi swim with the fish.  I'm still so sorry Adi and at least she wasn't trying to feed you to the sharks, right?

kids are so hilarious, "No ... um, yes." Someday Adi will come back with her own little family and she can tell her kids that she swam with the fish at the mall. That will make her way cool.

p.s. I tagged you.

Well Dew-B-Dew - You are a spunky one, but that exactly why we love you so much. Adi had a good swim with the fish but once she got into that Disney Store and got to pick out a new princess night gown I started to think maybe we (the parents) were out smarted... Maybe the two of you were in cahoots the entire time with a mischievous plan to get to dress up... "No...no....umm, perhaps yes?"

haha funny drew!

and Kaiya is terrified of Aaron usually too but lately she has warmed up to him. Kaiya did NOT like the slide at all.

That is so hilarious! I just had to be there to see it! sorry Adi . . . were you guys shopping afterwards with soaked kids???

Reynolds said...

Yeah, we kept shopping. Adi was pretty upset that her skirt was wet though. She quickly got over it when Taylor and Leah suggested going to the Disney store and picking out a nightgown. We think they planned the whole thing!
