Ah we had a big day today. A really great day. I guess that day-of-rest yesterday did the trick. We started by surprising the girls in bed with some sugar cane to gnaw on. They’ve been dying to try it, and it’s actually been hard to come by. Then we drove up to Kapalua, where TubaDad and I met back in 2001. Saw some gorgeous flowers on the way (are these hibiscus?), and Ro and Ree did their best America’s Next Top model poses with them. (Ro left in the grey top, Ree right in the tan top):
It was neat to stand on the driving range with our little family and talk about how their daddy and I met in this very spot.
Well at least TubaDad and I thought it was neat. The girls were more impressed with the Hawaiian apple bananas and spam musubi that we got at the Kapalua general store:
Oh man, it just kills me when they hold hands. I think it must be a twin thing, how they so often touch without even noticing:
After soaking up the gorgeousness in Kapalua, we headed to Ro’s “best” beach, at Whaler’s Village, and played until we could play no more. Ree in blue, Ro in pink.
Yes, yes, we’re still using the cast-off bucket and hotel water glasses for toys. TubaDad and I prefer to save our money for fruity drinks and really great fish dinners.
Ro throws her hands up in the air every time her feet touch the water. Adorable, and so Ro!
There’s probably something better than playing on a beach in Hawaii with your sister, but I sure can’t think of it right now:
Our island girls are having a blast. We took them to a luau tonight, but gave them a little Benadryl first (they’ve both got minor coughs) and lost them a few minutes into dinner:
Heh. That’s ok, we’ll just have to come back soon so they can experience their first luau. :-) Tomorrow is our last full day in paradise, and the plan is to spend as much of it in the water as possible. Aloha!
