Hawaii!!

On July 11th, Robert & I, Brian, Kimber & Ryan flew over to Hawaii for two weeks.
We spent a week on the Island of Oahu on the north shore near Shark's Cove in a house right on the beach. It was awesome and we had great views of the beautiful sunsets every night. Probably one of the funnest things we did there was to snorkel around the volcanic rock into Shark's Cove from our beachfront. Its a good thing we didn't know that sharks like that area!

Sunday morning Robert and Ryan helped to save a sea turtle who got snagged on a fishing line.

one of our favorite things to do is eat at Bubba Gumps


One of the highlights (for me, at least) of this trip was when we helped a little bird recover after hitting our window. He stayed on my finger for fifteen minutes or more till he flew away.


On Kauai, Lindsay joined us and we stayed at the Marriott Waiohai Beach Resort
We experienced a very relaxing week of lounging in the sun by the pool,


...horseback riding along the beach


...visiting the Grand Canyon of Hawaii and having dessert at Lapperts,


...watching Ryan surf every morning right off the hotel and great BBQ dinners (courtesy of Ryan & Brian). Our room was on the first floor right off the pool, which was very convenient...


This year we again went on the Napali Coast tour and the weather was perfect,
the views stunning and the food was yummy!

Quite often, Monk seals will come up to the sand to warm themselves and rest


We saw some great sunsets from the beach in front of the hotel

It was a lot of fun to be there, but the best part was just enjoying the time together...
We will enjoy the memories for a long time...
