Waimea Bay

These are a week old from our trip up to North Shore last Monday. It is called Waimea Bay and it is beautiful. The water is so crystal clear. It reminds me of Fiji. It is only 30 minutes from our house..better than the almost 2 hour drive we had to take to get to Hapuna Beach from our house on the Big Island!!
Melia making her way down to the water. She is so used to Ko Olina having no waves that it was hard to keep her from going into the water too far. The waves up here are pretty powerful to a little 18 month old but she didn't care! She loves when we let her "ride" a wave in. They aren't huge or even big but to her I thought they might be. And actually in these pics the water looks completely still, doesn't it? Hmmm...well anyway it was fun.
Melia turned 18 months yesterday! I can't believe she is already 18 mos. Time flies by when you are moving every few months! HA! I am now 26 weeks pregnant and feeling good. Still running and swimming and all that which makes me feel so much better. Oh and I get nightly foot massages from Dan! Thanks, baby!!
Dan started his first day of school today. Over the week end we went back to school shopping and got him some pencils, pens, binders, and erasers. We got him a few new t shirts too. Oh and a cool new backpack! He was all set this morning after I made him a sack lunch! Actually he found a lunchbox with Michael Phelps on it so he brought that instead. Melia and I were so proud of him as we watched him head off to school! Ok seriously though I am very proud of him for going back to school. We went to the Ko Olina yesterday evening and this evening. It was awesome. We watched the sunset and Melia waved bye bye to the sun as the ocean swallowed it up. Hope everyone is having a good week so far!!

Oh,the pictures are beautiful! Melia is definitely a little "water baby" . . . actually 18 months is no longer a "baby"! Oh, growing so quickly! Preparing Dan for his first day of school . . . soon, it will be Melia's turn! :) Great post!

Yeah, back to school. It's good but painful at the same time. I wish we had such beautiful sunsets to wave goodbye to. One day we may get to meet this cute little Melia.
