Day 4 was Sunday so we started the day at Church in Kapa'a. We got there right on time and the chapel was packed. We managed to squeeze onto a bench but the kids were on laps. We also forgot to bring them anything to look at or do doing church. Somehow we made it through but it was a bit of a stressful hour. The intermediate hymn was in Hawaiian which was kind of fun. I didn't think to take a picture of the church until we were driving away which is too bad. It was really pretty.
After Church Lester was nice enough to take some family photos for us. Unfortunately the position of the sun in the sky and the disposition of our children did not make for great photo shoot success. Not to mention the fact that I did the worst french braids in Tatum's hair. Her hair was a crazy, frizzy mess.
After our mini photo shoot we headed inside for lunch and then loaded up to drive across the island to the west side to see Waimea Canyon.
Poor boy did not want to throw up.
After she threw up she fell asleep on Brennan's lap and woke up doing much better.
The kids liked putting little pieces of bread out on the balcony for birds to come and eat.
Brennan and Lester went up the river on stand up paddle boards that night and Melanie and I took the kids outside to enjoy the evening.
The kids played outside for quite some time. Until at just after 7, when some grumpy, crusty old man came outside to yell at them to keep it down. They weren't really being that loud and all of their sounds were happy sounds. Sorry the sound of children's laughter and joy bothers you, you grump. We were getting ready to go in anyway, but it kind of soured the end of the evening. It was an adventure-filled day that is for sure. Even with the carsickness I'm glad we decided to make the trek to Waimea Canyon.
