Big Island - Day 7 - Goodbye & Hello

We tried to make the most of our half day before our flight left: my parents on a date in Kona town and Kyle snorkeling. Not wanting to get too sandy or dirty, the kids and I found a great play area. As you may have learned by now, swings are so rare here, the kids get SUPER excited when they see them!
Kona turned the old airport into a huge park with a sports complex, nature trails and a playground, all on the shoreline. The old runway makes a great parking lot, and it was filled with some giant motorcycle convention (party, gang?) so the kids loved watching all the different types of bikes rumble by.

Luke has a Hawaiian doppelganger! When you have matching pirate shirts, you have to be friends for the day :)
We had a great time on the Big Island!


  1. Looks like they had fun! It's always good to find "friends" at the playground.

  2. Plus the boy's mom was really nice to chat with too :)
