Haena Beach in Kauai (and Lumahai)

We are back home now, and I am finally getting around to posting the rest of our pictures. I know you're probably sick of hearing about Hawaii, but I have this compulsion to be complete in my record-keeping. Someday when I get around to scrapbooking these pictures, I will have to look up these posts to remember what is going on.

So anyway, I actually have a few more pictures from Kauai before I move on to the big island. This is at Lumahai Beach where the water was really too rough for swimming. You can see Russell standing down by the water in this picture, daring the waves to come and get him. After Lumahai we went down the road to Haena Beach, also known as Tunnels Beach. The waves were still pretty rough and not super friendly for swimming, but not dangerous like the ones at Lumahai. I tried for a few minutes, but gave up after I cleared out my sinuses with a nice dose of salt water. Russell was more persistent. These two pictures are of Russell getting almost smashed, and then totally swallowed up in the waves (he's in there, look closely). He loved it.

Grandma and Dorian. Dorian, finally getting comfortable in the sand. Here he is after he went swimming (I'll post a video in a day or two...it's good stuff).

I love the picture of Dorian crawling in the sand. What a cute boy! Can't wait to see the video!

I don't mind you being thorough in your record-keeping; I've loved reading your stories.

And, um, holy cow! How many teeth does that cute little guy have?
