I hope everyone had a great weekend!
I have a few posts I’m working on, but for now I just thought I’d take you with me on my typical afternoon at the skate park. You know, just like you’re tagging along. Because that’s what friends do.
We spend many hours a week at Bonzai Skate Park here on the North Shore of Oahu. Recently there have been more and more cute, little rippers at the park, (and less not-cute big guys with no shirt/shoes/class.) So it’s been fun hanging out there.
During my many hours at the park, it’s kind of become my personal hobby to spend some time checking out all of the adorable groms in their super-stylen skate gear. It makes the time go by…
Check out little Kaiser’s pink hat and colorful pads. And Makana’s purple shoes…! These groms know style.
And Luke, sport’en the red with red (good matching this time!) And…the flannel shirt in the middle of the summer in Hawaii? (Don’t ask me, I just work here.)
I am all about giving groms the freedom of self-expression.
The fact that I like to sit around and check out what the groms wear may or may not say something about my spending an excessive amount of time at the skate park.
Have I become numb to the fact that my eight-year old is dangling horizontally over a 12 foot empty swimming pool?
I do enjoy the action though. And I love to
embarrass encourage them by yelling things like “Go big or go home Lukey!” which he loves. NOT.
Once again, I blame the Olympics. I’ve been a little worked up lately.
(Making his own style statement here: The classic yellow muscle shirt. Quick Style tip: Only wear these if you actually have muscles, AND a tan, or if you’re under three.)
