Snorkeling, fun for the whole family... or not

I was convinced that if you lived in Hawaii you had to own snorkeling equipment.
 For my birthday (yes another present, I know I am spoiled!) D bought the whole family snorkeling gear and we set off to Sharks Cove. Yes the name sounds daunting I know, but there are no sharks there. Legend has it that a nice  mama shark used to live in one caves but is no longer there, thus the name.

We were all so excited. Our kids are all pretty decent swimmers so D went on a head with the two older boys leaving me with the two younger. As soon as they left I realized T was freaking out.. almost hyperventilating. You have to understand T is my most brave kid. He will jump from anywhere do anything. Meanwhile lil B was having difficulties with his mask and it was hard to stand because the waves were a bit choppey and coral was everywhere. I finally got D's attention to come back and take T. 
Then we had a wonderful wonderful time. ( I know, poor T!)
We saw the coolest fish ever!! I need an underwater camera for sure.
 I finally came out of my sea world experience to notice that D and T were on the shore. 
T apparently had had enough.
This is him(below) when I told him yesterday we were going to go again.. He was running and hiding from me. 
Apparently snorkeling is not his favorite thing to do.
But it sure is mine!


  1. We vote that Addison should get an underwater camera for his birthday!! Such a funny pic of Tal. He's like a wild animal you tried to snap a picture of!

  2. I love snorkeling. How fun to be able to do this as a family!
