The morning of the first full day on the North Shore we went to an awesome farmers market.  G'ma and G'pa got us popsicles and we bought some yummy fresh ahi and papayas and veggies for dinner. Delish.

Even though it was raining for a lot of our trip, whenever there was a break we could take a 2 minute walk to the beach to one side or to the other side to turtle beach.  We saw 3 different turtles hauled out on the beach, hanging out.  

There were tons more in the water.  Daddy and G'pa went snorkeling with the turtles one day.

G'ma & I and Mommy & I had fun running in and out of the waves.

I also had fun looking for seashells and seaglass.

I have to say, the rental house had a really good location.

Ring around the island

We took a mini-driving tour of the island to check things out and find lighthouses for G'pa.
Diamond Head lighthouse was our first stop.

Next stop was Daddy's old house in Hawai'i Kai. I think Grandpa Jim likes brown houses on steep slopes with nice views.  There's definitely a theme.

Then to Makapu'u lighthouse. We skipped the hike and just drove around to a cute little beach to see the lighthouse. Mommy was a bit sad, since she liked to watch whales from the Makapu'u point. It was for the best though. Davin and I passed out shortly there after for the 'long' drive to the North Shore.

Finally we made it to the house. It was worth the drive.  Great location and beautiful view.

Time travel

Sorry for the break in posts. Luckily, now we have lots to post about. We just got back from a week vacation in Hawaii with Grandpa Ken and Grandma Aileen. Mommy will download the pictures from the second half of the trip. She was at the University for the first few days and so we don't have any pictures.  But here are some other people's pictures of my FAVORITE part of the trip -- the water slides at our hotel!!

Davin was too little to go on the slides so he spent time walking around and going to the beach with G'ma and G'pa. Either that... or he was yelling. He didn't really like the 5 hour time change. It took 2 days for Mommy and Daddy to get a full 8 hours of sleep. Maybe next time he can go on the slides with me!
