We got lei’d (hee hee)

Hawaii2008 127, originally uploaded by YarnDork.

Here’s my sister and me just after our lei making. This is the finished product. Pretty, huh? We’re standing in front of the little garden area that was just outside our lanai/patio. They planted those to hide the unsightly outdoor grill. If Jim had waited a few seconds to snap that picture, he also would have gotten my 3 boys slamming themselves through the plantings as if they were breaking out of prison. I never mentioned the resort we stayed at, did I? It’s called The Point at Poipu Beach, I think. It is a partner of the Disney Vacation Club, which is pretty much the only thing that has allowed us to take vacations some years. I’ll put up a huge free advertisement/blog to the Disney Vacation Club sometime. Really, they’re wonderful, and the places we’ve been able to go have all been fantastic, including this one. We got in at like 9 pm or very late, local time, which was 4 hours later for us. And we had been up since 4 am. You do the math. We got checked in, and almost right away when we get to the room, here comes some guys to re-make Kristi and Jim’s bed. They were in the 2nd bedroom, which had 2 twins, and we had mentioned that at some point, maybe the front desk could send someone to mush them together and make it into one bed. We certainly weren’t expecting it to be done that night. So, by the time we got the sofa sleeper unfolded and made up for the boys, and used the sofa cushions and another sheet on the floor for the oldest son, and got the bags all unloaded from the minivan, Kristi and Jim had a new bed. The people there were all very nice, and, unlike the Grand Hotel up on Mackinac Island, never once told us our children were “so full of life.”

(That’s code, by the way, for “For goodness sake’s, please get your boys under control before they completely tear up this over 100 year old hotel.”)

    I love the lei’d joke! I don’t think it ever gets old. I remember a high school trip that we had a couple of plastic leis, so being the wonderfully mature teenagers that we were, we’d put them on each other and then announce that so-and-so had gotten lei’d by thus-and-such. We mostly liked watching the chaperons freak out until they figured out the pun.
