My sister and her boyfriend will be heading to Maui as well. My sister has to go to a bunch of meetings. Ha ha! I, in turn, get to watch my nephew for a week while they're gone.
If you have been a reader of mine, then you know that I love Hawaii. Instead of letting this get me down, I have a bunch of things planned.
This next weekend will be filled with Star Wars Day and a Sunday Hawaii Night. My nephew has never seen the original trilogy, so we'll be marathoning that. I'll change his life forever. Since we're both going to miss out on a trip to Hawaii, I'm making a Hawaiian dinner. I am going to make pineapple teriyaki pork chops, mashed taro, spam fried rice, broccoli, and some kind of fruity smoothie.
During that first weekend we have to put together Dylan's Valentines Day cards for his class. They're dinosaur themed and are "Dino-Mite!"
The rest of the week will be filled with board games and probably movies, but maybe some kid crafts. I'm always open to suggestions. I do plan on taking my nephew out for Valentines Day, breakfast or brunch or something.
