It's been really cold in Hilo lately, as I've officially acclimated to the weather here. I've been suffering in the low 60's temps all month! I actually have to wake up and put on socks and a sweater in the morning, and even keep the windows shut at night. Brrrrrrrrrrrrr.
But, to get away from the chilly wind and rain, it's nice to know we can still drive 2 hours to the other side of the island and find a warm, sandy beach! We spent Saturday at Hapuna Beach State Park, where we swam, dug sand holes, built sand castles, and romped in the surf. It was a heavenly mini-vacation for me, (til I can rough out the end of this frigid Hilo winter. :)
Here's some pictures to warm you up, my dear friends who are experiencing REAL winters all over the world.......From our latest trip to the other side:

These photos below are from the jogging trail near Old Airport road. We always take our kids down there to play, while Micah and I take turns in the Kona temple.
