On Wednesday, we had the privilege of going to the Hawaii Nature Center. We had GREAT guides who taught us all about the life around us. We hiked, fished, searched for decomposers (the bugs that decompose leaves, etc into soil) and then enjoyed lunch out on a nice pavilion. They kids had a great time fishing and found tons of freshwater shrimp, small fish and snails. Everyone got a little muddy, but it was well worth it for the fun we had!
