Hawaiian Vacation

Well, were here in beautiful Kona. Scott has a PA conference and Preston and I tagged along for the ride, and what a ride it's been so far!!
We've been to Kona before, 10 years ago. I loved it them and I love it now. It's huge. It's beautiful. It's warm. It's been a great vacation!
First night we stayed in downtown Kailua-Kona. The next morning walked around, shopped and went sight-seeing.
 We visited the real cool Tiki retreat. There were a ton of cool tikis right on the beach. The ocean here is warm, clean and so many shades of blue.
 Preston has traveled so well. He's such a happy, good baby. He slept most of the flight over here and has been a dream baby with a hectic schedule that I planned. In and out of the car seat, stroller or backpack....Here is our first time on the ocean.

An awesome rock we spotted!

 We shopped at this cute flea market area and I bought this! I love it!!

Right around the corner form our hotel is the beautiful Kona Hawaii Temple. We went at night and again in the morning to see it again. The stone blocks are white with slight pink tones in them. So beautiful!

And of course the sunsets. They are amazing!
