Oma & Opa Visit The Island!

Please excuse my complete lack of updates.  My mother, father and older sister have been visiting for the past week. Tomorrow we are on our way to Oahu for some historic sightseeing. For now, enjoy these highlights from our super fun week!

Dessert at Monettes - yum yum.  Two dessert platters fed four with room to spare!  The chef went so far as to accommodate my request that the plate cheer the Vikings to victory (clearly, it worked!).  The chocolate layer cake with Kona coffee cream was described by Beth as "the tastiest ding dong Ive ever had!"

Drive over Mountain Road to bask in the glory of North Kohala.  Sure it was rainy with limited visibility but the Tahitian Vanilla ice cream was still delcious.

Beach, beach, and more beach.  I was impressed with Opa's willingness to dive right into the Pacific.

Brewery hunting.  (I believe this is the "where's your boto?" pose)  Kona Brewing Company provided awesome beer and food (the baby ate an entire keiki plate - sides and all).  Mehana Brewing in Hilo had a tasty, although somewhat limited, selection of fresh beer and a cute shop.

Hiking at the lava fields in Kalapana.  The black sand beach was truly something else.


And a WHOLE LOT of driving in the car!
