Today was fabulous! This morning we got up, put on our sunscreen and swimsuits and went out to investigate the tide pools near our hale.
After fully exploring the tidal pools we headed out to have breakfast and once full it was POOL TIME!
The family pool and kid pool area near the breakfast terrace is beautiful and the kids had been torn between the beach and the pool (such a difficult decision to make) so today we decided to play in the pool all morning.
The pool seriously tired us all out and after a fabulous buffet lunch we came back to our hale for our afternoon naps. The kids both fell asleep on the deck to the lulling sound of the ocean waves crashing on lava.
While the kids were napping I got a call from Lara. Lara and Ryan had left in their rental car this morning to travel around the island to Hilo. They stopped at some of the scenic overlooks and hiked down to Akaka Falls. While they were picnicing somewhere between Kona and Hilo Ryan got down on one knee and proposed!
Lara and Ryan came walking down to our hale to show me the ring while the kiddos napped! The ring was a little too small so Lara is wearing it on her pinkie until they can get it re-sized. This picture was taken right after they got back and here they were at dinner tonight.
After nap time, we all showered and dressed for a fabulous Kona Village dinner.
