and then we got to do another awesome thing today! every spring, the university of hawaii has a scrimmage. each year they go to a different island. this year is our turn and so andrew and i got to go! and since we were with allan, we got to go down on the field and talk to all the cool people. go warriors!
of course i was wearing my party shirt.

on the way home, we stopped by a gas station. i got a laugh out of the time limit on their parking spaces. 13 minutes?? 15 was just a little too long...
we came home and chilled a bit. then we got to go to a big dinner at our friend allan's house. we ate delicious food (in mass) and got to chat with the uh coaches. and i tried opihi for the first time! (a member of the gastropod family and a hawaiian delicacy) it did "taste like the ocean" but in a good way... we had a really lovely evening. only one more hour till actual birthday!
