Now we are home and trying to get back into the swing of things (it's been a rough week...)
I took far too many pictures and we did far too many great things to really put together a post on it all. So here's the short list:
Sleep - oh glorious, GLORIOUS sleep!
(Seriously, I got from 9 - 11 hours a night. That's like three night's worth of sleep for me when I'm at home!)
Sandy beaches, sunshine and snorkeling (a huge highlight!)
Banana Macadamia Nut pancakes
Gorgeously GREEN scenery
Pearl Harbor, the Laie Temple and the Polynesian Cultural Center
Pineapple whipped icecream at the Dole Plantation (cannot describe this dessert and do justice to it's wonderfulness!)
The most gorgeous sunsets I have ever seen
and of course the sound of the ocean pounding in my ears (just thinking of that sound puts me into LaLa Land...)
A heartfelt thank you thank you THANK YOU to my amazing mom and dad, and aunt April and uncle Kevin, for helping with the house, dog and kids (and making it so darn fun they barely even missed us!) WE LOVE YOU GUYS!!!
