Snapshots from Hawaii 2011, Part II.

Note: My bathing suit is Lilly Pulitzer (from last year). I bought a white bandeau to wear under the top because it was way too revealing for my tastes otherwise! Vivian's swimsuits are from Land's End. I had a tough time finding modest suits for her and was very happy with the fit and quality of these. Thanks to those who asked!

After a good night's sleep, Vivian woke up in a cheerful mood. She very willingly agreed to accompany me upstairs to breakfast

On the way there Vivian kept pointing over the rail to a pond in the lobby and exclaiming, "Look at the beautiful waterfall!"

Vivian LOVED the breakfast buffet!

After breakfast Vivian and I walked down to the pool. I was able to convince Vivian to put on her bathing suit, but she didn't want to get in the water at first

Before long, however, she saw someone in the wading pool and decided to give it a try. She was a bit unsure of the situation, though!

Pretty soon her daddyman joined her and she had fun pouring water on his head

(Apparently this was around the same time that my camera ended up on manual focus and my aging eyes failed to realize this was the case)

Lunch by the pool. I'm so sad this picture was not in focus!

Vivian discovered the wonders of an Oreo smoothie

Vivian and me walking back to our chairs. (When Robert used my camera to take this picture, he said, "Something's wrong with your camera - it's all blurry" {sigh})

Dots enjoyed relaxing in a lounge chair...

...until one of her friends from Dallas arrived, then she set off for the pool

Meanwhile all the day's fun and likely a little jetlag caught up with Vivian!
