On Monday, the day after the hike to Hanakapi'ai Falls, Jessica's sister Sarah arrived to join the party. That night, they all went to the Hawaii Alive Hula Show, where Johnny and several others from the audience went up on stage to dance the hula. Jessica took a video. I tried to take photos of her video off her facebook page with my new camera (yes! I have a new camera! It arrived yesterday!) but they didn't turn out (not the camera's fault... taking photos of a computer screen does not lead to quality shots). But these will show you, at least, that he really was up on stage dancing the hula.
On Tuesday, they spent the day kayaking the slow moving Wailua River for 2 1/2 miles with two hikes along the way in the Wailua River State Park.

|Johnny thought this was the gnarliest tree he had ever seen.|
|Can you see the tiny bananas at the base of this flower?|
