We finally got off our lazy butt's this weekend and painted the bathroom. Thanks to Nat for picking out the Fairy Godmother color from the Disney paint line. So it took a lot longer than we anticipated since we had to prime it first. But I think it looks pretty good. More of a beachy, tropical feel than the poop brown that it was before.
And this is just a pic of Chloe and her obsession with boxes. She loves boxes! And her new obsession is tearing up paper... which she managed to do by shoving her paws under the door and into the bathroom to get the drop paper we had put on the floor when we were painting. She's crazy.

Wow! This was quite the adventure. We took off at like 5:45am so we could make the 6:30 departure. We should have known it was going to be a little rougher than anticipated, because it was all rainy and stuff when we left.
So we hop on this boat and go like 2 or 3 miles out to sea, and they tell us that they don't even really need chum because the sharks are so used to crabbing boats that they just swim right up at the sound of a boat putting a cage in the water. And believe me they weren't joking. I would say that there was at least 3 sharks visible within 30 seconds. It was pretty crazy.
Long story short...you climb in this cage that they tie off to the boat and float out into the water. You are supposed to float around in the cage all nice like and snap some pictures. BUT... there were these pretty big swells that were coming in and they would make they cage yank against the ropes real hard...and really suddenly... so it was a pretty violent ride, and I think I bashed my head against the cage like 4 times.
But we got some pretty good photos... and that sweet video that Rach posted. We both have all of our limbs and digits.
Something you should all check out if you ever come to Oahu.

For my 25th Birthday Brian took me on a "North Shore Shark Adventure". It was awesome to say the least, I would highly recommend it if you are in the area!
Here is a video we took when they were feeding the sharks. Enjoy!
Also, please stay tuned for our under water pictures, from inside the cage!
