Magic Show

  We went to a magic show at the Hale Koa Hotel. We weren’t supposed to take pictures during the performance, but we took a few cute ones of the kids before the show started. James is so cute and happy!     Marion is excited because there is frosting on her fingers. We ate…

Bellows Beach and Fresh Catch, Kaneohe

  We spent one day with Chris’ parents at Bellows Beach which is on one of the many military bases in Hawaii. The best part were the awesome trees with exposed roots that the kids played on.     The kids loved these trees and pretended it was a house, a fort, a restaurant, a…

Dole Pineapple Plantation
