New Years on Roi
Sky found this party hat and she played with it all day (but refused to have her picture taken with it on)
Early on, Fire found a golf ball and it became his favorite toy for the weekend. He would be happy throwing it and chasing it for hours.
Hurray for Grandmas! C has the most wonderful patience with the kids and Sky just thrives under her attention.
Thank you for the flowers!
D looks so much like his dad, especially now that he has a beard
Sky wanted to drive (and I let here, but not in town)
D took his dad and step-mom snorkeling in the Japanese pools (they were dug by the Americans about 15 years ago to build some new housing up here but I'm guessing they take their name from the coral pools on Kwaj that were dug out by the Japanese)
Sky and Fire were pretty sad to be left on the beach but they eventually found enough to keep themselves occupied
The radar chickens had chicks! We went to feed the chickens a few times while we were there and the second time we spotted a hen with chicks. I was able to pick up one of the chicks for the kids to pet (well, for Sky to pet. Fire kept trying to pull it's head off)
Sky loved holding them
Notice how D is hold Fire's hand to keep him from grabbing the poor thing's head. We found this second chick on it's own on the road. At the time I hoped it was just warming up on the pavement but I when I saw it again later, I'm pretty sure it was dead, poor thing. I hope we didn't contribute to that.
fire got his own floatie from Uncle J and Aunt L for Christmas and he wants to wear it all the time, even when he's not swimming.
There was swimming, paddle boarding, some more snorkeling, all that fun Roi beach stuff
Family photo, first try
There we go!
This is how we roll: there are two (large) kites, two suitcases, and a kite board in the trailer and a Sky on the handlebars- who needs a minivan!?
(Did anyone notice that we're all wearing the same clothes in these pictures? I kept forgetting my camera in the room so I took them all on our last day up there)
