Just Another Day in Paradise…

July 9, 2016

What else is there to say?

We’ve been having a blast, exploring beaches, hikes, canyons, and waterfalls.  On Thursday (I think?), we drove up a winding, winding road to Waimea Canyon, the “Grand Canyon of Hawaii.”  I’ve never been to the Grand Canyon, but I was pretty impressed!

After viewing the canyon, we hiked around a bit with the kids…and rewarded ourselves with GIANT shave ices:

Just a little sugar.

That night, we were beat from the day, so we just relaxed and ate dinner at the pool.  The kids soaked their weary bones in the hot tub:

Hahaha.

Yesterday, we drove up to Wailua Falls:

…which apparently you used to be able to hike down to, but now can only view from above.  Womp, womp.  Oh well– they were still beautiful!

Afterwards, we headed to Lydgate State Park, which was a beautiful state park with a really cool playground that Charlie loved swinging at, plus a GREAT children’s beach.

I strapped Charlie in the Ergo so that he could nap, and we strolled the “big” beach too:

So pretty!

Finally, a few days back, we explored a local farmers market, and indulged in some great Hawaiian treats:

We are having so much fun.  Hawaii has been a great choice for kids AND adults– there is so much to do, and we have another week but I’m already feeling the stress of running out of time! Gah!

We’re checking a big “must do” off our list this morning though– helicopter ride around the island!! Eek!

Pray I make it back alive, haha.
