Day 4


Stone Cold Ainsley
Ainsley insisted on wearing my hat even though she has her own that actually fits. I asked her if I could take a picture and this is how she posed. She didn't change her facial expression until I snapped the picture. No amount of coaxing could get her to smile. yes that is chocolate all down the front of her and smeared across her face-it adds so much to the picture don't you think?
Everyone took a bathroom break before we took a short road trip. Ainsley went in the men's restroom with Cache and Asher. They came out and Ainsley began fussing and sayin "me, there" and pointing back at the restroom. She wouldn't stop fussing until Cache had taken her back in and sat her on the toilet. Notice the toilet paper in her hand. Nothing happened, but she had to do it , and she wiped. It is kind of ironic though because neither of the boys used the restroom sitting down. Maybe she will be like her sister and be potty trained at 2 (wouldn't that be great?)
Deep in thought at Iao needle, really she was just bored.
Iao needle is a tall mountain in a jungle type area not far from where we were staying. It was fun to see a different landscape other than just beach. I still prefer the beach though.
at the top of the walk (not so much a hike)
i dared them to get into the water
Eden took the dare to the next step and decided to cross the river.
Half way there.
yeah!! she made it. She slipped and fell in on the way back-hahaha. Actually Asher fell in first and Eden laughed so hard, so you can imagine how hard Asher laughed when Eden fell in.
ahhh, my mouth waters just seeing this picture. If you ever go to Maui, you HAVE to go to Ululani's for shaved ice. We went there almost everyday.
If you go get the Haleakala flavor. mmmmm half coconut, half pina colada with Sweetened condensed milk drizzled over the top. Pure Heaven.
the kids got chocolate and blue raspberry. It tasted like a tootsie pop.

I'm a beach girl myself. Ray always wants to do a hike or two when we're in Hawaii, and I think we can hike anytime at home. No beach at home.

I'm jealous of your fun Hawaii trip, wish I could have a vacation right now! thanks for sharing- it was fun to at least see pretty pics and be reminded that someday, even w/ kids, we can still getaway.:)
