Day 5 - Beach Day
This day was a great beach day! We jumped between two of the best beaches on the island and enjoyed some fun in the sun.
Luke was super proud of his sand castle.
Benjamin made sure Audrey was being protected from the rays.
Just call me the "baby whisperer".
Sweet beach moment.
The day ended with some pool fun!
Audrey and her mama.
Ben loved spending hours in the pool...
and hours walking with his Daddy!
"I love Hawaii!"
Day 6 - Falls
We headed to the water falls first thing in the morning. The trip was filled with great views, fun hikes, and a yummy lunch out.
After the falls, we went back to our Hawaii house.
While Luke enjoyed dinner with Judy and Bunny Bear...
and Audrey was getting a bath in the pool...
Benjamin was having a major meltdown.
I guessed he missed the memo that he was in paradise.
Classic moment with my parents.
Me = taking deep breaths. Tula/Pop = dealing with crying child in the towel.
Ben was quick to recover once seeing his Daddy come back from a run.
LOVES his daddy!
Day 7 - Last Beach Day
Our last full day on the island started out with my Dad spending an hour cracking a coconut. Fresh coconut juice is super over-rated.
Audrey was a little under the weather and enjoyed lots of TLC.
Just one of the guys.
The boys managed to look somewhat convincing wave surfing...
The Gibson Four.
... And the love birds that made it happen.
Our journey home was a long process! Our departure flight didn't take off until 9:45 pm so we had a whole day to kill. Tula and Pop bought the kids cute Hawaiian outfits and they were a hit!
We killed time visiting the resorts that were near the airport.
There was great restaurants and shopping nearby. Benjamin loved walking store to store.
Luke made some new friends...
Amanda and I are so blessed!
My family of three.
My Hawaiian babe.
The Hawaiian islands have always been good to us. We have loved being blessed by their beauty and culture. I am so grateful to have parents who are generous enough to bring us to place that God's presence is everywhere.
I love the following picture because it embodies pure joy, pure love, and pure beauty.
Hopefully we will see you again Hawaii but till then...
