Put a lime in the coconut...

and drink it all up.
That's what I was singing during one of our rainy afternoons on the beach.  TL managed to throw a stick into a coconut tree and knock a few down.  After that, the boys had a field day trying to get those things open for the juice.  After a failed attempt, they finally cracked one open.  
Sabrina and I have finished several books - and spent lots of time in the spa, pool, and by the beach.  We had a great sunny day at tunnels beach snorkeling - and we all managed to get some sun!  I will have some pictures from their underwater camera soon.  It was a lot of fun!!

Here's how the coconut shenanigans unfolded...


And then, we came home to shower and go to dinner at Nanea (our hotel) in Princeville...
I tried telling him this is bad luck...
It was pouring... but still warm!
 And when the coconuts aren't around... they play tic tac toe on their "breaks" from swimming and snorkeling. ;)

The only downside to vacation... time goes by much too quickly!  Finished a few books and enjoyed making fun new memories.

Aloha!

Oh fun! What a great place to have a vacation.
Everyone looks so happy and relaxed. When I visited Kauai'i I remember the pineapples being out of this world. I should have tried the coconuts!!

There's not much that's better than knocking down your own coconuts and then reaping the rewards! Looks both fun and entertaining :)

You look incredible - that dress suits you so well!
