it wouldn't be a hawaiian vacation without a luau
We went to the Smith Family's Luau, an experience that was quite the show. You get a tour of their gardens, fabulous dinner, and then the show. I was happy to take the tram around and look at the peacocks, huge ducks, gazillion roosters, and swans from afar. I think I may have realized that being attacked by a bird may be a fear of mine.
These peacocks were pretty stunning to say the least. I know I have seen one before but it has been some time so I was incredibly impressed, and terrified, of them.
This evening marked the first time I left Anderson without nursing him before bedtime. He was happy with my parents, exhausted from a busy day in the ocean, pool, and at the playgroup, and apparently asked for me a few times before falling asleep but then did so quite easily. When I heard the report back from the night I may have gotten teary realizing he doesn't need me anymore. I knew he would go down easily for my parents and I'm glad he did.
When we got home he proceeded to wake up around 11 at which time I nursed him so he'd go back to sleep for many many hours. I never fully adjusted to the time change and felt myself quite tired in the evenings.
Thankful for our night out, Hawaiian style!
