tuesday we meet up with some friends and walked up to the falls at waimea. it's so beautiful up there. while we were walking up i just kept thinking how lucky i am to live here and be surrounded by so much natural beauty.
the pool at the falls was a little cold but it was so nice. the kids had to wear life vests, which were actually quite nice it made swimming out to the falls a lot easier.
velzy, who loves to make faces for the camera these days, is the worlds best 4 year old walker. the kid can walk and walk and walk. it's awesome, not one complaint the 3/4 mile up or down. makes up for the fact that she was so bad sitting in the stroller when she was a lil tyke.
and ivy, she is really good at sitting on my shoulders. whole way up, most of the way down- not complaining, i like packing her around. she did get down and play for the last part of the walk down and right as we got back to the bottom she fell pretty good and skinned her knee. a nice lady happened to have a huge band-aid and neosporin in her fanny-pack and gave it to her. one of the sweet ladies that worked there gave ivy and velz peacock feathers (there are peacocks running around there) which helped the hysterical child calm down a bit.
and what is this? i am not sure, but i think its awesome.
the rain is pouring down right now. the sound of the rain is one of my favorites. can't wait to lay in bed and listen.
good night and have a great weekend!
