Swimming in December

It seems odd that I should post this on the morning that my family and friends in Minnesota are enduring 20 inches of snow, so much infact that it caused the dome of the Metrodome to collapse. But we've been enjoying Hawaiian winter. It's been dropping to a comfortable 60 degrees at night but still soaring during the day so that a day at the Beach is still fun. So with some Moms Club friends we headed to the Beach at KoOlina.
Lots of playing ...
Some posing, naturally.
more playing...

And because going to the beach some days is just too much work, we have asked our wonderful neighbors who have a pool if we can use it some afternoons. As you can see Danya looves the Pool! Thanks Auntie!

One thing you should know about playing at KoOlina beach is that even on a Monday morning, there are tourist brides getting married. Usually a Japaneese couple. The bride is always in a poofy dress that looks fresh from the designers rack. The groom is always in white or grey. The bride is almost never in a veil but more likely has large flowers in her hair. The photographer has the same shots he does every time, and he's on a strict schedule, because....
about an hour later he's down with another couple. See what I mean about them looking the same. It doesn't even matter how close the kids are, he just crops closer. Sometimes the only way you can tell that it's a different wedding is by the color of tourist aloha wear the rest of the family is wearing. Usually it's the expensive kind, but the first wedding of the morning all had the generic Hilo Hattie red and blue aloha wear.
Danya and her friend were very curious about the process, so they got pretty close this time. So funny.
