hawaii. . . a good day to be immodest

After getting our rental car and surviving what the girls refer to as "the longest Costco trip ever", we arrived at the beach house.  The girls had been waiting to go for a swim, and were a little bit disappointed that we were on a reef (not the sandy beach they had been dreaming of).  The beach in front of the house was great though, and they had a great time exploring and beach-combing whenever we were at the house. 

Our favorite line from the trip was Claire's announcement the first day after we arrived.  As we walked back to the car after getting groceries, everyone commented on how hot it was (we had just come from winter, after all).  Claire piped up and told here dad, "Well, Dad.  It's a good day to be immodest!"  We've had some good chuckles over that. 

That night we drove up to BYU-Hawaii to show the girls were I went to school and then stopped at the temple.  It was a beautiful night.  I forgot the camera, so all we have are phone pictures.  The girls thought it was beautiful, of course, and loved the huge palm trees.  They also had fun visiting with the sister missionaries. 

The next day was Sunday, and it poured rain all day!  We went up to Laie to church and then drove the kids to Laie point.  When I lived there, we used to spot turtles there every now and again, but it was far too stormy to see anything.  The girls were pretty impressed with the huge waves and all the spray as they crashed into the rocks.  After, we ventured to Sunset Beach to take a peek at the surfers, but it was raining so hard we didn't even get out of the car.  So, back to the house for a relaxing afternoon!

Oh, Claire, how I love your take on the world! I am so very jealous that you are there and I am here. Enjoy it for all of us!!!
