Hawaii - November 27th & 28th

We are home! However, it's bittersweet to be home. I loved every moment I was in Hawaii. I was able to see a lot of things that I remember from my childhood there and somethings that I didn't remember until I was there and then I was flooded with memories. It was the best vacation I have ever been on!! Thanks so much Mom and Dad K!!!!

Here is recap of our trip. We did so much everyday we were there, so I am putting a few days on each post. Watch out I took close to 400 pictures.


November 27th. We arrived in Hawaii. By the way, thanksgiving is a wonderful day to travel. There was hardly anyone in the airports. It was already dark by the time we got our rental car and found our hotel. We picked up some Subway and ate dinner on the beach, played games and then went to bed. We stayed at a nice hotel on Waikiki. There was a street in front of our hotel and then the beach. Here is a picture of the view out our sliding door.


November 28th. We hadn't planned much for this day except to find a walmart and get beach towels, snorkels, and anything else we could think of. Our hotel was next to the Honolulu Zoo so we spent most of the day there after Walmart. After the zoo, we went snorkeling in the ocean in front of our hotel and then got ready to watch the christmas parade down Waikiki.

There is a Zebra in the bottom right corner. I thought this tree was neat so I started to take a picture of it and as I was doing that the Zebra walked by.



3 out of the 4 of us in front of the Flamingos. Can you tell we were looking into the sun?

James and I in front of some pretty plants.

Hawaii has these really neat trees where the branches actually grow down into the ground. I think I heard someone say they were Banyan Trees, but I could be wrong.

We thought it would be neat to take a picture of us near one of these trees.

Cute turtles. Little did we know, we would see turtles all over the island.

Diamond Head from the zoo.
