|Hunter is getting too big!|
|I really like this pic of Stinks|
|I also like this picture. Tralee had so much fun playing in the water. We couldn't get her out most days!|
|I like the way the water looks like a blanket over the sand in this picture.|

After playing at the beach we went back to our room to eat lunch, rest, and then we visited the kiddie pool. Our little kiddies thought it was a "kitty" pool and kept asking questions why cats have their own pool at the hotel when they don't even like water. Silly kids!
While at the "kitty" pool we made Tralee go down the big green swirly slide. She was afraid at first, but we knew once she went down she would love it. We were right! After her first time she went again and again and again and again. It got to the point where we felt comfortable watching her climb up the stairs and go down the slide all on her own. We could see her all the whole time, and besides occasionally reminding her not to cut in line or run around the pool area she had it down pat! She even knew where to watch on the monitor to make sure the last rider excited the slide area so she could go down.
Did you notice there are no pictures of Hunter in the ocean? That's because he's not a fan. He LOVES the sand but HATES the ocean water. I'm not sure why. I asked him and he said it was, "because it's scary." He also said, "Because it's too loud." We did force him in a few times, the whole time he screamed and shook. So, towards the end of the trip we stopped forcing him and just let him enjoy his vacation playing in the sand. Hunty did LOVE the water by the kiddie pool. He played in it a lot. He also loved all the hot tubs. Couldn't get him out of the nice warm hot tubs. Maybe by the time we go to Hawaii again (soon I hope) he'll have warmed up to the ocean. Silly boy.
I'll end this post with a joke Tralee came up with as we were flying to Maui. Are you ready for this one? It's pretty good for a five-year-old.
Where does a cat go on vacation?
Meow-i! Get it? Maui, MEOW-i! Hardy har har!
