Today was a rest day from the sun. It was also Toni and Thomas’ last day in Hawaii.
On our walk to the food court, we saw a Mama duck and her ducklings going for a walk too.
The kids love going up and down this escalator at the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center.
At the food court, we got a special treat at Kokoro Cafe. It’s called a Shaka-Boom: waffle shaka filled with chocolate sauce and topped with Dole Whip and rainbow sprinkles. Yum!
We also spent the afternoon in our room. The kids had a fun time together.
For dinner, we went to another food court and got one last family photo together before Toni and Thomas left for the airport.
We were up early again and the kids watched the sun go up again. It really doesn’t get old.
We went down early to get a pool reservation and set up camp at our favorite umbrella/beach spot.
Toni and Thomas joined us early and they tried out the turtle floatie that was given to them at the other hotel.
We spent part of the time at the pool (during our 2-hour reservation) before heading back to the beach again.
Auntie Yoon and Uncle Kurt joined us again and brought poi donuts from Liliha. Yum!!
The rest of the day was spent at the beach and we all took turns in the lounge chair floatie.
Peanut had a little too much fun on the turtle floatie and was falling asleep on the water.
We pulled him out of the waves and put him under the umbrella where he took a 2-hour nap in the same position!
It later started to rain so we had to pack up and head back upstairs to the hotel room.
We are all so happy to say goodbye to 2020. To celebrate, Uncle Johnny made macarons and the kids helped out.
Mama flew back in time to enjoy some hot pot and to do the countdown to 2021. This was the first time spent NYE with the family all together. Happy New Year!
We celebrated Uncle Jason’s Birthday a little early tonight. Happy Birthday, Uncle Jason!
The kids all had another dinner together tonight.
It’s July 4th today! The day started with donuts and Animal Crossing.
Then we went to Toni and Thomas’ house for the day. Dada and Uncle Jason smoked some brisket and the kids played.
When the sun went down, we all stood in front of the house and watched the fireworks that Uncle Johnny and Mama bought. The neighbors next door took turns lighting theirs with ours. So fun!
Happy Birthday, America!
Dinner was at Alice and Leela’s house. Uncle Johnny also got a movie screen and set it up under the canopy. Looks like there will be a movie night soon.
Peanut helped Dada make salad today. He’s becoming quite the little helper lately.
Then we had dinner with Ankong, Ama, Toni, Thomas, Auntie Jia, and Uncle Jason over Zoom.
We had another family game night after dinner and played “SORRY!” This is how we spend our crazy Friday nights now. 🙂
We had dinner with Uncle Jason, Auntie, Jia, Toni, and Thomas this evening.
We had lunch with Dada’s cousins and family this time.
