Hawaii Day 9- Dolphins and Waimea Bay

Well, I'm finally finishing up pictures from Hawaii. There's some good ones! This was the day before we left. It was also the morning that Andrew's sister Christina and her husband Liji arrived from South Korea! They had been there a year and got lucky enough to stop by Hawaii for a vacation on their way home. It was so fun to see them again. They have never seen Jane and of course Zoey had changed so I'm glad we got to spend our last two days with them. Right after seeing them in the morning we went to go see dolphins and played at the nearby beach. Then, we drove out to Waimea Bay which was SO much fun. The beach there gets really deep really fast so it's like a big huge wave pool. There's also cliff jumping there so you can imagine why Andrew wanted to go. The best part however, was snorkeling with the sea turtles! Thanks to Liji for finding them and showing us. I got to swim within a foot of them...way cool! Afterwards we went back to the hotel for Nathan's birthday celebration spaghetti dinner/chocolate cake. That night we also celebrated our 3rd anniversary while ours two girls slept in Christina's hotel room. We walked along the beach and talked as we sat right down by the waves. It was so dreamy :) Then we went to PF Changs and got lettuce wraps (YUM!) and lava flows (a yummy drink.) It was so nice to spend time alone with Andrew.

Jane's saying "uh, mom, anyone...can I get some help over here." Poor Jane, she gets this ALL the time....Zoey puts all her weight on Jane and says "ooooohhhh, hugs, I love you Jane, oohhhhh" (the ohhh sound is her giving her a hug, she learned it from us :)

Right when Christina arrived from Korea

A pretty beach by the hotel with the dolphins

We got there right in time for their feeding time so she had them do some tricks just for us. It was pretty cool!

Zoey likes sitting in little holes just her size :)

Daddy and Zoey looking at the other sea animals (turtles, sting rays, fish, etc.)

Love this cute picture of Zoey and cousin James. Can you tell they're related :)

Zoey gathered up all the fallen Hawaiin plumerias

Zoey loves to observe things

Sea turtles!

One of the only family pictures where everyone's eyes are showing...why does it have to be in my swim suit :(

Crazy waves!
