The Mokes

The Mokuluas (the "mokes") offshore Lanikai beach is one of the most beautiful and memorable sights in Oahu, and one of our most favorite places to go!
Last week, we got the boys up early earlier to watch the sunrise at Lanikai. Never a bad idea! 
Then on Saturday, Keaton and Scott took their first father/son hike up to the pillboxes which overlook Lanikai and the Mokes. This is a pretty intense hike, and I was very skeptical if Keaton could make it to the top without complaining or giving up. But, Scott said he did great, and the view was totally worth it! 
 At the end of this hike are two World War II era bunkers (pillboxes) used for observation of the Windward coastline front against possible Japanese invasion. It's a great place to explore or just sit and admire the view!
As much as Keaton loves his brother, we are realizing how much he really craves 1:1 time with Scott and me. He was in such a great mood when he got home!
"Let's do this again, Dad! Without Mark, ok?"
