I have enough pictures and stories to write about our Hawaii trip for at least two more weeks, but I don’t want to bore you. Instead, for the next few days I’m going to focus on each child and some of their highlights.
RedDog loved snorkeling for the first time. He and the snorkeling gear were never far from each other and he loved seeing the angel fish.
One day on our morning walk on Bikini Beach, we came across this dead eel that had washed ashore. RedDog was fascinated and begged me to take a picture so he could show it to all the boys in his class back home. I think it is super creepy.
Every morning RedDog and his grandpa would head out to the beach to comb for treasures. They were never disappointed.
Here’s RedDog attempting to create fire by rubbing two sticks together like they do in Samoa. He was not successful, but the Hubby was and we all had fun trying. He loved all the activities at the Polynesian Cultural Center. I just noticed that the feet of all my family members are in this photo – except for me, of course.
At Waimea Falls RedDog was happy to hunt for awesome rocks to add to his collection. He liked this red one very much.
A big highlight of our day in Honolulu was taking a tour of a World War II submarine with his dad at Pearl Harbor.
We all agreed that the best swing ever is the swing made of driftwood anchored to a tree right on the beach. RedDog was in heaven!
This treasure, found beach combing one morning, looked like some sort of vertebrae. Whatever it is, it makes my boy happy and now lives with us in Virginia.
