Hawaii Day 3
On Wednesday Bob's sister, Valeri, offered to watch Andrew so we could do something that isn't kid-friendly. We thought about going kayaking, but decided against it since it would be in the sun all morning (and the sun is not Micah's favorite thing). Instead we went on a hike up to a waterfall. It was a beautiful hike, and reminded us of the TV show Lost. When we got to the waterfall we got into the pool, and took our time getting used to the cold temperature of the water. Then the boys went right to the waterfall to jump off it. After some convincing I eventually swam through the cold water over to the waterfall, but there is no way I was going to jump off of it.
After our hike we all ate lunch at home, got cleaned up and headed back out. We stopped for ice cold coconuts, mmmmm. Then drove to different beaches looking for sea turtles, but didn't find any. Then we Waimea Falls (where a couple of scenes from Lost were filmed). It was a nice walk up to the falls, there were beautiful flowers all along the way.
Then we were off to find some dinner, and then to Sunset Beach to watch, well the sunset. It was gorgeous, the best I have ever seen.
