With our busy lives of home, family, church, work & school we've been pretty occupied with our surroundings..So much, that we were in need of a FAMILY DAY. So, we decided to spend the day at the beach.....We woke up to a breakfast of pancakes & eggs, I packed the cooler with turkey sandwiches, cold apples & oranges, chips, & bottled water. We loaded up the car and headed for KUKIO BEACH, the most beautiful beach in our Kona area.

We got there around 9:30 am just in time to secure a shady spot for our chairs, cooler & towels, and hit the water!!! We played chicken fight, marco polo and even did a few water races.... the kids had so much fun...

Anton, Fou & Tony haven't been to the beach in awhile so we thought ........YUP IT'S DEFINITELY TIME FOR SOME SUNSHINE!! I wasn't even thinking about re-applying my SPF 15 Sunblock to my shiny white skin until it was too late!!!! YES I'M BURNED!! SUNBURNED THAT IS..........After leaving the beach nearly 5 hours later, we headed home drained and full of sand in our hair, shorts and towels... We showered, took naps and decided to eat out for we went to the all famous "hot spot" for family dinners here in Kona........DENNY'S!!! Our family had time to chit chat and catch up with one another while enjoying a few laughs... I must say I enjoyed myself very much....After dinner, we decided to watch a movie (The Underworld) Personally, it's a little dark for my own taste, but the kids sat & watched it and thought it was alright... Now, we're at home well fed and ready to turn in for some rest in time for church tomorrow..... All in all, IT WAS A GREAT FAMILY DAY..... GOODNITE!
