Last night we opened our tent and posted it up on our lanai (that’s a deck to anyone not in Hawaii). This offered the kids a “playhouse” mid afternoon and an awesome sleeping under the stars experience at night. Daddy wasn’t feeling so hot so mommy (me!) got to hang with the kids.
I’ve never seen my son want to go to bed so badly. After assuring both kids there was no such thing as Big Foot (at least not in our yard) my son was fast asleep. My daughter on the other hand wasn’t convinced as easily and with each click of a gecko or movement of the wind, she announced “Big Foot!” It gave me the opportunity to snuggle her closer.
All in all it was a great night’s sleep and I was well rested when they keiki woke up just shy of 5 a.m. Yes, 5 a.m.
Oh! And in case you are wondering, roosters do not only crow at sunrise, oh no, they seem to crow all.night.long.
