We had the amazing privilege of spending 3 weeks on the Big Island Hawaii!!! Nana and Papa are building a dairy over there so they have a long term rental that we could stay at. The kids and I headed over a week before Daddy so that they could get used to the 4 hour time change before he came! They did wonderful changing time zones and were SO excited to get to the beach! Camden was a little scared of the airplane but ended up doing good. The first little bump we went over on take off though, he let out a loud scream! I had to switch him over to sit by me and after about a half and hour he said, "Ok, Mama that's enough flying, lets go down now!"
|So cute with their bags!|
|Killing time since our plane was LATE!!! I did make these pants for her though to wear on the plane!|
|LOVE LOVE LOVE this look!|
|Papa knows his way into this little girls heart!|
As soon as we got to Nana and Papa's Hawaii home we had to take a swim!
|This photo makes me laugh!|
The first few days were spent getting groceries and settled but we stopped at the turtle beach to get some energy out in the middle of shopping.
|Sunbathing turtle... what looks like a white rock to the side of Keaton.|
|All the kids by the turtle in the tide pool. The tide was REALLY low so the turtles were mainly in the tide pools or on the rocks.|
|She found a tiny dried up little crab!|
|They are so cute when they are asleep.... poor kiddo was so worn out! Sleeping shirtless... adorable!!|
That evening we headed to Beach 69 to play. This is one of our favorite beaches so you will see lots of photos from here!
|Uncle Derek was here and wow it is awesome to have an Uncle around!!|
|Keaton LOVES the beach. From the moment we got to a beach to the moment we left he would be in the water. Rolling around in the waves!|
White sand beach!! This beach was BEAUTIFUL!!!
|What do you know, Mommy can build a sand castle!|
Even bubbles are cooler in Hawaii! I couldn't believe it when I looked out at them doing bubbles... it looked like they were glowing! When I got closer I discovered that you could see shadows of palm trees in them!
Wednesday we went down to the market to get some fruit!
|She got to pick out flowers which just brightened her day!|
|Cute kids ready for Wednesday night meeting!|
|Hey, I get smiles if I let them do this afterward.... you will see lots of these photos!! I say, whatever works!|
Hang in there, this trip may take me a while to post... lots of photos and not much time to edit!
