Today was our final day in Hawaii. We crossed things off our to-do list, including going to the Polynesian Cultural Center to do some souvenir shopping. Both the kids got new sunglasses, even though we won't need them in Chicago for a while.
We are frantically packing, cleaning up and playing.
Remember how Nick lost his snorkeling mask in the ocean? I did the exact same thing! I was sure it would be okay because the water was calmer and I didn't have the snorkel on (so it would have less drag). But a rogue wave came and slammed me to the ground and stole the mask off my face. As I was being pounded into the sand, the thoughts that ran through my mind were, "My mask! My mask! I might drown. But my mask! My mask!" At least I lost it on the last day of the trip. It was prescription and really made all the diving much more enjoyable.
