Andrew with a hula girl at the luau. Mike had to get his picture taken with her first for Andrew to want to do it. I would post that other picture, but it is kind of creepy--some Dad getting his pic taken with a hula girl.
The kids favorite part of the water was being pulled to shore by the waves.
Every morning Bev found a flower on the ground and wore it over her ear.
The fam at the Iao Needle.
My favorite picture of the trip--we had a full rainbow. It has been years since I have seen a full one.
I made an attempt at some artsy photography.
We had a great time. A&B are at great ages to take to Hawaii. They did great at snorkeling--we saw sea turtles, eels, lots of beautiful fish, and a reef shark. We loved the hotel we stayed at--very family-friendly and no televisions. I loved swimming in the ocean--the water was perfect. Mike spent a lot of time snorkeling in the bay. He got pushed into a reef by the water and hit a sea urchin. I got to remove them--some were very deep.
It was a great trip. We missed C&J, but it was really nice spending time with A&B. Thanks Mom and Dad for watching the little ones. Now, back to packing. We have a lot to do this weekend. We are moving into the apartment, getting the rest of our stuff moved into storage and getting our house clean. It was nice having such a wonderful vacation right before the craziness of this weekend.
