How To Annoy Your Neighbors...


When living on an island surrounded by water, living 1/2 mile from the local pool, and living in a condo that has it's own swimming pool in the middle of the complex, the best way to totally annoy your neighbor (the ones living under you) is to flood them...

Kainoa and I thought it would be hilarious to put one of those kiddie pools on our lanai. Seriously, how much fun would it be to have a pool RIGHT THERE? We got a pool for $6 and made a mess. (think slip n' slide).

About the time my sister came over there was less water in the pool and more on the floor. She asked if I knew where the water was going....hmmm? Looked over the balcony and there it went... like a rain storm on the family below us. Thought about inviting them to join the pool party but the pool barely fit 2 of us.


While swimming laps we discovered our pet gecko has a girl friend, in fact he has 2 girl friends. We tried to put them in our pool... bad idea...

To complete our tropical pool party on the second floor of Kalani Kai we juiced. This one you gotta try (for all of you that own juicers).

*2 pears
*1 large lemon
*1 small chunk of fresh ginger

Happy laps! AND the most fun part of our pool, it instantly turns into an ice bath with a LARGE block of ice... for 6 bucks you can't help but have fun!

Wow - am I the first to comment again? Holy Cow! :) Hey GREAT idea for the pool party - i LOVE it! Oh and the Geckos - have you guys named them?? If you name the bikes...you have to name the pet Geckos. :) Great pics!

BriGaal said...

So fun! We stayed at the Kalani Kai in 2005 for the Ironman. Great memories :)

Natalie said...

I'm so jealous! :-) I can only dream about going swimming outside right now.

Great pics...looks like a lot of fun!

A kiddie pool is my ice bath tub. Out in my back yard in the warm sun (when it's around).

Randy said...

Sounds like you guys had a blast Bree. Let me know when you are ready for photos of you and Antonio. And where is the new burrito place?

Oh hey, I drafted off you Sunday in the race. Well it only lasted for about 5 strokes at the start then you were gone but it gives me some bragging rights ... take care.

bart said...

ADC said...

It seems as perfectly made for two of you.

LeAnn said...

I KNOW I could hit my intervals in that pool. Do your worst, coach.

Flatman said...

You are the best/funnest mom in the world! :D

Cricket said...

Kainoa is getting more cute by the day...(if that's possible?)
Looks like you two are having a blast- I'm so happy!
The geckos are sooo cute! Cuter than Florida geckos- way cuter!

The Lazy Triathlete said...

The joys of communal living. As long as it is all in fun!!! Who can get upset with anyone in a kiddie pool.

Kim said...

So fun Bree! I love it and you can't do one lap in that pool which is good. It was made for fun (well, and ice baths, which I think is like a crime in Hawaii) only! Love the pictures..they warm me!!

Jill Costantino said...

I LOVE it! I bought one for the lil guy in the summer and I was questioned whether it was for me or him? Let's just say we both had fun!

Your Gecko boy is a STUD!

See, I never would have thought of the kiddie pool thing! I use the bathtub, but might need to get a pool now!

Mama Simmons said...

Can't wait to try the juice! I love anything with ginger... carrots and ginger = my favorite. :)

Kainoa is looking so much older! What a cute kid.

Benson said...

that is wonderful.

Cy said...

You two are so cute in that pool together! Good times.

Kathleen @ ForgingAhead said...

Brilliant! You get top marks for creativity and finding ways to have fun on a budget!

beth said...

Eileen Swanson said...

AHAHHA, muy muy loca Bree! ;-) Pero me gusta la picina chiquita!! Kainoa es muy guapo ;-)

XOXO

Steve Stenzel said...

LOVE the pool!!

Bruce Stewart said...

What a life! Just lying in the pool sunning yourself all day! Come to think of it, I could fit one of those on my lanai, too.

IAN said...

Thanks Bree. I am pretty stoked on it. I was weary about 2:55, didn't think I had any shot at sub 2:50, and 2:45 never even crossed my mind. Only bad part is it makes my next goal that much harder ;)

Wes said...

That's a little more fun than a big box :-) Amazing how much fun can be had for cheap!

Ange said...

Kainoa looks so adorable in that middle picture. you're such a great MOm.

Speed Racer said...

That Gecko's such a pimp! Be careful or he'll start bringing home alligators soon! Then the neighbors will REALLY be pissed. Seriously, you seem to have so much fun all the time. What am I doing with my life?!?!

CoachLiz said...

Whoo hoo!

I have all the juicy pears, lemons, and ginger root in my kitchen right now. I am going to give that a shot today.

Strange how your geckos look different from Texas geckos. Your Hawaii guys have fatter tails.

This is totally hilarious!!
I once tried having Koi fish in my little plastic pool (like minds think alike) on my deck in Naples.
Your boy is incredible goodlooking!
He should on the cover of something!
