Rob, Lisa, Laura, and Douglas are back in South Carolina by now sleeping off that long flight. We are left here with great memories, over 200 pictures, and a houseful of sand! No more beach time, snorkeling, boating in the bay, eating out in Waikiki, watching the sun set over the ocean... oh, wait. We live here. I forgot.
It still kinda feels like our vacation is ending too. We had such a great time with Scott's sister and her family this past week. The weather was a little bit of a bummer, and I still regret that they didn't get to see the Windward side of Oahu in all its glory. But, we've never been ones to let a little rain getting in the way of our fun.
|We took them to the beach on their first night here. We kept them up until 8:30 (2:30 EST), no easy task!|
|Snack in the tent after playing hard at Lanikai on Thursday|
|It was cloudy and the current was a little strong, but the kids had a blast playing in the surf at Waimea Bay|
|My sandy beach baby|
| Cholo's on the North Shore after a |
fun day of beach and swim.
Cheers to locksmiths. Nuf said.
|Shave Ice with cousins! Doesn't get much better.|
|Mark was baptized on Sunday. It was so great to have family here for that special day!|
They spent the last four nights of their trip at the Hilton Hawaiian Village
|We spent the day with them on Monday at HHV. So fun!|
|Keaton would have gone down this slide 100 times|
|I love sunkissed faces|
|I like how Keaton is looking at Douglas. That boy LOVED having his cousins around!|
|Watching the sunset from the pier|
|Snorkeling at Hanauma Bay was a big hit|
Other great memories:
- Thunderstorm of the century followed by power outage and "family bonding" by the light of our iphones
- Driving all over the island to find sunshine
- Enjoying a picnic and watching the surfers at Yokohama Bay
- Our little "run-in" with security guard/parking attendant at Hanauma Bay
We miss you already!
