ALA MOANA BEACH
the highlight of snorkeling was definitely the sea turtle
(turned around and realized everyone else was taking a picture of the sunset as well)
the water was so pretty, it was very blue!
Luke's parents, Mark and Mindy, plus Beave (Luke's youngest brother) came during their spring break to visit last week. They stayed with us but were pretty much gone all day everyday doing activities! We weren't able to do everything with them (things are harder with a baby) but we did do some super fun activities with them. The Mitchells from back home were also here vacationing, so we did a lot of the activities together.
We went to Pearl Harbor, which is a super interesting place! I felt like I learned a lot. We did the headphone tour and also took a boat over to the USS Arizona Memorial. Simon was having a hard time napping, so he was a little fussy...so we didn't get to go through everything, but we still did quite a bit! Afterwards we went to Ala Moana Beach and Luke and I did some tandem surfing! It was a very very far paddle but we caught several really fun waves! The next day I was feeling a little sore and ended up getting a little sick as well, so I just rested the next couple of days; plus, going all day will a baby takes a lot out of ya.
Another day we went to Hanauma Bay and snorkeled! It was so cool. We found a sea turtle and followed him for a while, but there were also some very beautifully colored fish...and some very big ones too! We then headed over to Waikiki to surf. I didn't end up surfing because Simon was hungry and by the time he was done nursing the sun was going down. next time though i'll get out there! It was very pretty though and our first time ever to Waikiki. The water was very pretty and I guess it is also warmer than the North Shore (where we live).
It was fun to spend time with the Facers, we love it when people come to visit us!
