Komarnitsky Hawaii 2016
Family picture setup - gotta love the quad-stack tripod - sheets were spread out as light reflectors
Major water balloon battle earlier on in the backyard
We had an
on the Snorkel Boat - WaterJetMan and C-17's doing touch-n-go's!
Long-Boarding as the C-17's roared overhead
Videos of Sophia and Kyle long-boarding as the C-17 flys over
Kyle goofing around while anchored on the sandbar
Animated GIF of WaterJetMan - apparently he competes at the National Level - some crazy moves!
Kurt watching WaterJetMan
Speaking of Kurt, he turned 50 ... so was the centerpiece of the SuperBowl Pool
Mom's "approves" the random selections - ended up being a Fall City domination as they won $80!
Golf is always a treat in Hawaii - teeing off on the #13 Ocean Hole at Kanehoe
Kyle taking a swing at the "Dirk" ball ... which he subsequently plunked in the ocean
Before/After picture of the Marine Haircut -
better pics from 2011 with Sergeant Kurt and Private Kyle!
We probably consumed over a 100 drumsticks during the week!!!
Kyle and Kurt going for the full-on breakfast after golf
Kurt was the Baconator!!!
Alek was the Nacho-Man ... these were always devoured within minutes
Heading out for the "permit hike" on the Poamoho Trail - we had it all to ourselves
It was a tight squeeze in the rental car ... with Kris "BRRAAAPPPP'ing" it up the dirt road
Kris on top in the fog wolfing down all the food we bought
Kurt took a group out to go Shark Fishing ... really!
You catch these "bait fish" and then use 'em to try to hook a Shark
While they did catch one shark, they would have caught more if they had used Kyle for bait! ;-)
Colorful Hawaiian outfits
Sunrise at Kailua Beach is always a treat - just about everyone saw it all mornings
Some turtle pictures from our snorkel outing
Taking off from Honolulu after a GREAT trip - note C-17 next to depart
Landing in Denver at sunrise - note plane coming into parallel runway
Alek two years later as
"Little Buddy Gilligan"
getting ready for Hawaii/2018
The borrowed outfit is a bit big on me (especially the pants) so I look like an older, chunkier Bob Denver! ;-)
