The Mermaids

Sunday, November 23, 2014

This past summer I got to scratch off the bucket list item A.K.A. as “Visit Hawaii”, and it didn’t disappoint. We spent a week soaking up the sun, jumping in and out of the surf, visiting the sights, and spending quality time with family. Last Christmas from Santa, the girls received little mermaid tails (with openings at the bottom), and I made sure to pack them for this trip.

As luck would have it, or was it luck? The 6 hour time difference meant we were all pretty jetlagged, getting up at 4am each morning. The plus side was that we got that lovely light at dawn for photos, and on our second morning on the island we walked down to the beach at dawn and let the girls enjoy being mermaids.
