It has only been a week since we came home, but already it feels like forever ago. I miss it!!
We loved the Kaanapali Alii so much last year, we decided to stay there again, and made the trip a bit longer. We had an ocean view, and my favorite thing to do was sit on the lanai every morning with my cup of coffee and look out over the water.
One afternoon we drove to another part of the Island to a place called Twin Falls.
Pete and I enjoyed a lovely sunset cruise, without the kids.
Pete and Joey took a surfing lesson one day.
Joey enjoyed it so much, that he took another lesson the next day with Zach.
|Joey, totally tearing it up!|
While the boys were surfing, I took a paddle board lesson. I really wanted to do it last year, but couldn't bring myself to do it!
We also did plenty of snorkeling--Pete and the boys snorkeled off the beach where we were staying.

Vinny really wanted to parasail. While my husband is willing to jump off a cliff 2 stories up, he refuses to parasail. The other boys weren't very interested either, so it was just Vinny and I.
What a blast! We were up for 10 minutes. It was so quiet and serene up there. Of course we were treated to amazing views of the island.
What a wonderful family vacation! So many fun things to do, and so much time relaxing on the beach. I read many books- City of Bones-the Mortal Instruments, Divergent, Insurgent, The Pact, Battle Hymm of the Tiger Mother, and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. Yes, 6 books in 10 days!
Fabulous memories and lots of family time...
|I have always loved those jumping family pictures-do you know how hard it is to time it right and get everyone jumping together?? I gave up!|
