Hey Schnooky Bookies. It was so fun to talk to you yesterday from the volcano! Wasn't that cool?! I'll show you those pictures after these.
This is a weird spiky fruit we got in our gift basket. It was really yummy. It is called a rambutan.
There is lava rock everywhere! People "graffitti" by writing their names with little pieces of coral from the ocean placed on the lava rock! It's not naughty and illegal like in California where kids are damaging people's property.
There is a very bad storm happening here. We were heading straight for it when we were going to the volcano. There was a lot of flooding on the other side of the island. As we turned a corner on the highway, we saw a truck on its side and their was someone inside. We quickly pulled over and Daddy ran over to it while I called 911. The lady was okay and the ambulance got there and helped her out. We were so glad she was okay.
We ate at this bakery. It was raining so hard, we decided to take a break from the road.
Here we are!! Ready for the lava!Do you see the ridge drop off behind me? That is the crater of the volcano! The lava doesn't flow from there anymore, it flows out of holes on the sides now. But do you see the steam? That is from the lava below! It was raining very hard on Mommy.Here is Daddy at the Halema'uma'u Crater. Look at all the steam! It was actually hot! Daddy got you a rock from a steam vent.
Some more steam!!

More fun later! I hope you had a great time with your cousins at Auntie Nikki's! We love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Sweetness Cookie Faces. We are staying at a hotel called the Fairmont Orchid. It is really fancy schmancy and we didn't even have to pay for it! Daddy's work did, because Daddy worked hard for them this year so they are saying Thank You!

Isn't this beautiful?
You know Daddy, he likes to relax! But what's missing? Pause for thought. A book! Oh, and by the way...does he look like his favorite animal or what?!

We just love this little guy, he was just hanging out by the door. Look at Ethan's hand...that's how big he is. It's a Humalikilikitakatakaleeleenoop'ailailai'apuaa'a Moth.I'm just kidding, I have no idea what kind of moth it is.

MAMA LAVA!! I am standing on a little bridge of lava rock.

This is a private beach for all the people staying at our hotel.

Love and kisses monkey buns.

ALOHA OHANA!!! That means Hello Family!!

Hi sweet babies! We miss you so much already! Mommy and Daddy got here safely. It is really pretty here. We are on the big island of Hawaii (for those of our friends who are reading this...we are NOT on Oahu!!! oops.) GUESS WHAT?!!! The island that we are on has FOUR VOLCANOES!!!! One of them is FLOWING!! But not to worry, the lava is not even close to us. The lava actually flows through underground tunnels to the ocean on the other side of the island. I am bringing some lava rock home to you! The lava rock is everywhere here from a volcano eruption 200 years ago!

We've met some people who live here and they have told us a lot about the culture here. Kyle told us about a beach with black sand from all the lava rock being broken up. He lives in a little village and we are going to see it tomorrow. We'll show you pictures. I also met a lady named Megan who helps homeless children and their families get food and help for school. She was very sweet and it was great to hear about someone helping the poor out here.

Okay...so here are some pictures!! Here's our plane...
I sat by the window right by the wing.

Up up and away we go!!!

There was a movie on the plane, you saw it , Kyler, Game Plan.Here's Mommy with the Movie Pack they give you! It has earphones and goodies.Here we are landing in Hawaii...Our room with a beautiful waterfall just outside.

More later! Make sure you think of at least two things you did like about the play and write them in your book!! I love you!!! Good night sweet babies.
