For my birthday, Josh said I could go to Hawaii to see my sister Amy and her family. So Josh, me, Jackson and Austin boarded the plane for Honolulu. We landed when it was nearly dark and so by the time we got to their apartment which is about 45 min away, we hadn't really seen anything besides car headlights. So the next morning when we woke up, this is what we saw out our bedroom window. It was absolutely beautiful. This is their church building that is right behind their apartment.
The sun was shining so I bet you can guess what was the first on my list of things to do...........
...... head to THE BEACH!!!!!
This is Amy's son Brennan who is 3 months younger than Jackson. Can you tell who lives in Hawaii? There is one kid with dark skin and white hair and one with white skin and dark hair.
Get a tan DUDE!
They live a few blocks from the beach so we loaded up the stroller and the wagon and headed for the beach. On the way we passed the LDS temple that they live right next to. I was so awesome. The Temple Beach is the first one that we went to and my favorite one. It is just directly out from the temple. I just loved it!
In the above picture you can see the temple in the background.
We put Austin and Amy's little Brooke in the stroller together. Brooke is 5 day younger than Austin.
We went to Pearl Harbor.
These flowers are everywhere. In many different colors.
While we were there we were lucky that BYU Hawaii was having their annual food fest. We got to sample all kinds of different food from many all of the islands of the pacific. Brennan loved the noodles from Samoa.
You can see the trail that Jackson made with his bum as he was sliding down the hill saying that he was sledding. He finally decided that the sand was OK. He never ended up liking the water. I think the waves were too loud. Wimp?
This is the happy group!
Amy, I love you and miss you! Thanks for letting us stay with you. We had a great time. I am ready to go back.
