Hawaii – Day 4

Tuesday began with a trip to another beach.DSC_3303 Kirby (1)While the big kids swam and paddle boarded and snorkeled Kirby and I walked on the beach. Or I should say I walked on the beach and carried Kirby. She still didn’t like the sand or the waves. At one end of the beach we found lounge chairs and buckets. As long as there was no sand she was happy. Another first for me. I went snorkeling with my kids and there is video to prove it somewhere. Very cool.IMG_7759-Kona brewingDan had to get back to work and was leaving this morning so we cut the beach visit short. After he left we drove to Kona and had lunch at the Kona Brewing Company.DSC_3308 Kirby in backpackThen we loaded Kirby into her new backpack and went walking around Kona.

My father-in-law (who lives in Hawaii and is why we were all here) has completed the Kona Ironman twice and for many years volunteered here. Chris has plans to someday qualify for entry in Kona.DSC_3316 Matt and geckoSome of the local wildlife…DSC_3319 gecko
