Our first official day in Hawaii was spent enitely at the beach. The two oldest kids could hardly wait to get to the beach...so that's what we did. We found a beach not far from our condo. The sand at the beach was rather coarse, so it was a little rough on the feet, but the kids had a blast! They LOVED the ocean!!

Travis and Carson decided the shower was the perfect place to eat some breadsicks and cheese and sing/yell/scream while we waited for breakfast to come!

Two thumbs up for the beach!!

Getting ready to snorkel! He was actually really good at it. Christian will be so excited to have a snorkeling buddy!

Travis loved throwing the sand in the water!

Grandma and the grandkids. My other niece, Isabelle was fast asleep in the stroller.

Our second day we decided to check out the pools at the resort. We found a great kiddie pool. It had waterslides, shooting water spouts, rocks to jump from, and was calm and shallow so we didn't have to worry about the kids being swept away by the waves.
Travis has an obsession with things being in his toes. He is constantly picking out the sock fuzzies, so when we hit the beach, the sand between his toes kept him pretty busy!
This is what his side of the island of Hawaii looked like. There was tons of lava rock and not a lot of green vegitation, which was different from the other two islands we have been to.
The second night, we had dinner outside at the bbq pits. We had hotdogs and and potatoe salad. Grandma brought the kids light necklaces and they had a blast wearing them and throwing them around like frisbees.

Carson enjoying his hot dog...yes...this is actually a smile not a grimace!

What fun... and the best part (in my opinion) is that you get to share it with your mom, sisters! Someday... I have to keep reminding myself that someday not only will we go to Hawaii but actually just have a vacation! Great pictures and I love how Travis has to pick stuff out of his toes! Kyle and Blake are the same! Too cute!
