What to do on New Years Day??

Alex tires of choking the puppy and suggests a road trip.
We stick him in the car and chain him down carefully.


Mom, Auntie Doe, and Nena suggest a trip to Topachau and we are off!
Alex tries to throw me off the cliff but I resist manfully.
I want to ride the ATV's and will hold my breath until you relent.
Maybe later Kid. Goats, that is
We see beautiful tree flowers blooming.
We visit the Shrine at Santa Lourdes and cop some holy water.
We see a snowman...a bit of a rarity here in the tropics.
Alexander drives the 2-man go cart at Marianas Resort...Full tilt boogie, pedal to the metal the entire time. The kid is pretty darned good for 3 years old.

As you can see there is lots to do on Saipan for New Years Day. After the above pics we spent a little time at the beach. Then Olive and I ate dinner at the 2298 and drank a bottle of Mouton Cadet Phillipe Rothchild (all of it) then had a congratulatory Bananna Split at the Big Dipper. By then each of the NYD resolutions had been compromised so we headed home. I spent the rest of the evening playing with the baby's Momma. Fun.

Looks like a great day and night:) Alex and Sommer need to get together.

Good idea, Boni. Maybe on a weekend when you are off. Or perhaps after school some afternoon we could all get together and go for a boatride or something. MAybe she can teach him some manners. (:-))

Alex's expression says it all: "My dad's a nut, but he's my nut."

Sommer? Manners? Oh boy.
