The Day Before I Do

Welcome to Hawaii group #2! Today is the first day Laura, Claire, Chrissy, Justin and Dan woke up in Hawaii! They were exhausted, and were welcomed by Georgina! She is Ruth's 13 months old, and doesn't speak a lick of English. So every morning at about 5:30am, she imitates the roosters (that are not in Kailua) so we don't miss being woken up by them. Between the jet lag and The Baby (this is what Chrissy referred to Georgina as) everyone was very tired.

So we walked down the street to get coffee.

And then came back for a little breakfast.

Then, even though it was a little overcast, everyone made it out to the beach and slept on towels (or if you were Dan, slept right in the sand), and relaxed in the ocean.

Then we headed back home, showered, and walked into downtown Kailua for lunch.

After hanging out downtown for a while it was time to go though all the things Laura and Claire brought to Hawaii from my mom (mostly our credit cards and other replacements for things that were stolen), and get ready for the big day!18852_3117..31137_n.jpg18852_3117..70077_n.jpg18852_3117..05029_n.jpg18852_3117..97999_n.jpg

Notice the shaver in Joe's hand (the beard from November is finally ready to be buzzed off! Thank you Dan for bringing an electric razor!) And Chrissy tried on dresses for the wedding. Her mom was so proud of that dress with the damn sail boats on it. She got it at Macy's from $90 to like $3 and she used a 20% discount to get it for around $2. It looked great on Chrissy, but we voted for the brown dress because it was less stand-out-ish. (Wish I had that vote for my outfit)
