Eva was super happy at first.

After a short rest, Marc went to see a movie, and the boys and I walked around for awhile.
We decided we had to return to the shave ice place. This time, I got the tropical trio: mango, papaya, and haupia (fresh coconut milk). It was amazingly good, especially the coconut milk section. I was pretty much in heaven. (Lucas got peanut butter again, and Max got strawberry milk, also delicious.)
FYI: this shave ice has finely shaved ice in the bottom of the bowl, then vanilla ice cream, then more ice patted around the ice cream to form the volcano shape, then the whole thing is doused with homemade syrups and condensed milk. Delicioso!
We all went up to the owner's lounge for a prime view of the Friday night fireworks show. I love fireworks.
I was surprised by how early the sun sets in Hawaii. It seemed like every night around 7 or 7:30, it would be dark already! It took me aback every night. In Utah, we have to wait until 9:30 for it to be dark enough for fireworks.
|We went out to get some dinner after the fireworks and we were right in the middle of the Pan Pacific Festival. The main street was closed to traffic and there were people and booths everywhere.|
|Eva did not enjoy these loud drummers, but I thought they were cool.|
