Neat, huh? Here's Conner throwing up his best "Shaka."
After waiting around awhile, we decided to grab a drink for the road and head back to the car. He's an addict, like his mama!
By this time, the kids were tired and hot, so we started heading back to the car. Of course, that's when they bring out the other boats for the races LOL.
We didn't stay to watch, so thanks to Susan for these 2 pics :)
Just as we were leaving the beach, I got inspired and took this shot. I lurve it.

This is why.
Can you belive it was actually $10.74 a couple weeks ago? Too bad I didn't have my camera on me then... its ok if you don't believe me LOL.
I know what you're thinking. This is INSANE. Thank goodness I can utilize the commissary most of the time and get away with paying just under $6 per gallon instead. I wonder if housing would get mad if I got a cow for my back yard? Not only would I get my milk FREE, I'd have a built in lawn mower!
No wonder there is so much poverty here...

Man this marketing/catering to kids thing is getting a bit over the top. I mean, I can KINDA understand when you see images of Disney characters on fresh fruit, or other characters on canned veggies. I guess it makes healthy food more appealing to kids? Whatever.
But to see movie advertisements on my bananas? Really? I took a Chiquita sticker off of a banana last night that had a pic of a chimp from that new movie (Space Chimps?). Under the pic were the words "In Theaters Now!" WOW. Was that really necessary?
OH! Or how about the new Burger King Apple Fries?? Don't get me wrong, I'm so glad that fast food restaurants offer healthier options for kids meals these days. But to disguise the apples as fries?
As if the only way that something healthy would taste good is to make it look like junk?
