I had a plan for Father’s Day. And that plan was: have a baby. I was certain that we’d be busy with a newborn and made no plans to celebrate an amazing dad (who, even though he can’t gestate a baby, can at least carry his child in a backpack up Koko Head and also change diapers). So I made a quick reservation at Monkeypod for brunch to at least get us out of the house.
After breakfast we decided to go for a walk around Ko ‘Olina. I suggested walking the entire path around the lagoons, but after five minutes of the slowest pace ever, we decided to run around on the grass. Pregnant women walk really really slow. Stella got to burn some energy trying to tackle and tickle Wes and give him raspberries. After about ten minutes, though, she crawled back into her stroller and we set off for home so that we could get a much-needed nap.
After my nap I went to the grocery store and when I came home I found Stella and Wes making chocolate chip cookie dough. Not a bad surprise. Plus, how cute is that apron? I found it in Brooklyn and I’ve been waiting this entire time for it to sort of fit her. She loves it and now wants to help us in the kitchen all the time.
