Sunday = Fun Day!

Guess what I found? Yes! My camera has magically reappeared, just in time for our super fun beach day. We had such a great day, I just have to share it with you! (Although I have a feeling that no one reads this besides me.)

We decided to try out a new beach, Ko`olina. We usually go to Ala Moana beach, but our last trip there was not wonderful… it was dirty, crowded and just plain gross. We’ve wanted to try Ko`olina for so long, but never got around to it. Now we’re just plain sad that we waited so long!

It took about 20 minutes to drive there, and we were able to valet at the `Ihilani instead of waiting for a beach pass. (Valet is always a girl’s best friend, right?) The beach itself was beautiful… clean, protected and not crowded at all! Perfect for the kids. Plus, there was beach-side pupus/drink service for the grown-ups! We rented two cabanas for the day, at $20.00 each, and let me tell you, it was totally worth it! We also rented a water hammock for two hours ($30.00, also totally worth it!) and the kids had a blast playing on it.
Judah and I mostly stayed in the cabana, but he did go in the ocean and played on the water hammock for a little bit. He liked it much better than the last time we took him in the water. Emma and Gracie found hermit crabs and pipipi on the rocks; daddy and Judah napped in the cabana; we ate musubi and chips. It was great!
On a sad note… the brand-new bottle of sunscreen that I used on the girls and Manly totally failed. It was a dud! They got fried. It was so disturbing to see my little girls so red and miserable. I was so angry at the sunscreen company. Luckily, Noxema and aloe works wonders and they’re all feeling better!

  1. I’m just a tad bit jealous of your day!!! First off, it’s too cold to go to the beach down here. And secondly, the beaches WILL NEVER compare to Hawaii, so it’s just hard to get the gumption to go to one of them. Looks like you all had fun!
