New Year's Day

On New Year's Eve we went down to Makalawena to camp with some friends.
That night we ate some fresh caught Opaka'paka that Matt fished out of the sea the day before, Ian's delicious Teriaki Chicken, Alena's bartending concoctions, and fresh local organic salads start from our lovely box (picked up on the way down there).
We brough some sparklers for the boys but Matt's buddies had huge boxes of firework madness and the inner pyros were let loose.
The following day was gorgeous!
Matt caught lots of waves in the monsterous surf.

Mommy caught up on some reading in gnarly tree over the swampy little pond by our campsite.

Christian tried out Daddy's surfboard and built lots of sand creations (castles, "snow" men, etc.) and found a very interesting tree to climb.
Journey was the waterbaby- coudn't get him out of the ocean.
Poor Makaio, wasn't feeling very well and didn't want to get wet or play. He had a tummy ache so we took him home instead of staying an extra night as intended....
Or actually Matt took us home and he went back out to camp another night. We had New Year's Day dinner with Tutu, Papa, Grandpa, & Uncle Rory. Tutu showed us her herd of elephants carved so small that they fit inside a tiny seed and have to be viewed through a magnifying glass even to see them.
