BSM: Post-Vaca Photo Fest

I probably don't need to say this, but we had a great time in Hawaii. Thanks Mom & Dad, for inviting us!

This was the view from our condo:

Some highlights of our trip:

We did the beach, pool, Pearl Harbor, North Shore, Dole Pineapple Plantation, a luau, catamaran, snorkeling, and lots of macadamia nut eating. My favorite are the Kona Coffee covered ones. I ate my last can in the airport (how pathetic is that?). I don't dare bring any home because I'll just eat them till I'm sick. And then eat some more.

We're all trying to get back to reality (and 50 degree weather) today in preparation for school and work tomorrow. It's going to be one tough Monday morning...

I really REALLY can not wait to go. The colors are so brilliant, every one of them. Back to reality is hard. Don't recover too fast though.

I feel the warmth radiating out of those photos. Would just love to go to Hawaii someday... It's pretty much at the top of my list of places to visit. Thanks for sharing your trip.

Beautiful! I can imagine the return to the "real world" is rather unwelcome today!

Heather said...

Oh...welcome back, I think? I recognize the Dole plantation stand...we have photos from that one too! Hee...now I really want to go back.

I love the "postcard" display, too...

Leslie said...

I'm not sure "jealous" would do it justice ... this looks like a real spring break! Hope Monday morning wasn't too tough.

Those are so awesome! I have a photo of myself in that Dole pineapple! These will make for some great vacation memories!
