Beach Days

We have spent every day on the beach, and it has been a highlight of this trip. I love the beaches here even more than California's beaches. The sand is finer, the waves are small where we are, which is perfect for Bryanna, she gets in with Mark, me or her cousins and we sway with the tide, its is HEAVEN! We spend a few hours in the ocean at a time because the temperature and tide is just right.

The sky was a mixture of volcano ash and cloud was amazing!

The Tuitama family came to the islands with us. They have been a long time family friend, and they are so FUN! Shawna and Foi actually met at BYU HI, so they love coming back time and again. This is the first time they came with their kids though, it just happened to work out that way!

Jamie and Tyler, have become great friends on this trip!

We have been loving it so much here, I have a feeling this might turn into a tradition! It has been an amazing vacation. We still have a few more days left to enjoy all the beauty here! Mark went golfing yesterday and it was ocean views 270 degrees!

We went to the beach yesterday and Parker ran into the waves and we DONT have warm water out here! That would be nice! Anyhoo, love the pics! Happy New Year!
