First on the agenda was to make flower leis, made from paper flowers, straw pieces and yarn. Ryan and I spent a couple of hours tracing the my flower template and cutting out all those flowers. As I was nearing being finished, I thought I really need to make friends with someone who has one of those Cricut cutters. Anyone?
Then it was time for a rousing game of Hot Coconut. It is surprisingly similar to Hot Potato, if you are curious. Except you use a coconut and play Don Ho's "Little Grass Shack" song.
Lunch time- keeping with the Hawaiian theme: Hawaiian pizza and fruit kabobs. I'm sure it's very authentic Hawaiian food.....
If you have a chance, you should click on the above picture of Elizabeth for a closer look. She has a super-crazed, excited look over the big box of play-dough. Clearly this was the Best Present Ever. Even now as I write this blog post, she sees that box and is still excited about it even though she played with the play dough for quite a while yesterday afternoon and this morning.
