Aloha Hello, Aloha Goodbye

Aloha!!! Well we are back from our Hawaiian adventure... and soooo sad that we had to leave! We loved every second of our vacation. (especially the part where we could sleep in and then go to the beach!) When we arrived in Hawaii we had to stay at a hotel because our condo didn't start until the next day. I have to tell you of the funny story that happened to us while we stayed there. At about 3:30 in the morning we heard pounding on our door. We decided to ignore it and went back to sleep. Then again at 5 am there was pounding on our door again. This time Zack got up and went to the door. There was a drunk lady there telling us to let her in. Zack told her she had the wrong room and she responded by saying, "No I don't, let me in!" (and  swore at him... ha-ha) Zack said, "yes you do, go away!" and shut the door. Luckily she went away but now we have a funny story to tell!

The next day we drove up the Pali high way and went to the Pali lookout. It was beautiful! We spend some time at the most beautiful beach called Lanikai beach. The water is so blue and the sand so soft and white! This also began the beginning of our many sunburns. I highly recommend this beach to whoever is on Oahu! Finally we were able to go to our condo on the Makaha side of the island. It was a little bit far but perfect for us! We had our own private entrance to the beach the condo's were on. Talk about amazing!

Over the next week we went to some of my favorite places on the island of Oahu. We went to the Dole Pineapple Plantation, up and down the north shore (waimea, sunset, pupukea, & turtle beach), The shrimp trucks, The Polynesian Cultural Center, Laie LDS temple, and Kahana Bay & state park. It was such an amazing week. One of our other favorite memories was playing in the waves that were coming in on Waimea bay!

We are wishing we could go back but for now we will just have to settle for our countdown until Hawaii next summer! Here are some photo's from our trip!

My other favorite outfit! (loving these flowy skirts & neon!)

Now I have this countdown to look forward to...

Hope everyone has had a fabulous Memorial day!
