making new friends. the earth is kind of amazing.
a walk home from the beach. getting caught in the rain.
spring roll making // tofu thief.
drawing "doubles" (W's)
everyday here, I feel like we're on the set of LOST.
evening walk. birds?
I hand her a peanut butter &jelly sandwich. one minute later, I walk out &find her with a spoon in hand, eating the insides. smart girl.
we haven't been home in over a month, yet she knows and remembers how we do things at home. she found a towel on the floor, picked it up, and hung it over the sink cabinet door, like I do in our kitchen. it's the little things.
liliko'i (passionfruit) sorbet inside a papaya. it was worth the sugar headache.
&a video, part of a video anyway ;) I love her so much! &her excitement for certain letters (usually Y and M). She knows them all now, that sweet little smarty.
I'm excited for tomorrow! We have a whole fun day planned with another blogging mama. Q: How many blogging moms can you find on one small island? A: apparently a lot. hehe. I told Marlowe we were going to the zoo... so she is obviously super excited too :) Speaking of which, on our way home from the market yesterday, Maryam was sweet enough to stop so I could make Marlowe's little dreams come true. We got out of the car, in the pouring rain to see real live loggerhead turtles, out in the wild. (I'm not sure how one finds fake ones in the wild, but you catch my excitement). We didn't have an umbrella... or a towel... only a really large hat for Marlowe's head... but it was well worth the downpour (it really came pouring down when we stepped on the beach) to see those huge wonderful creatures!
Ps. Our return flight for Florida has been booked! We will be in the San Jose/San Francisco area (first time!) for 2.2 days. Vegan, bread, beer, cute shop recommendations are highly appreciated :) :)
