Just a few shots from our fantastic trip to Hawaii. We were in Oahu again this year, so we tried to do some of the things we didn't get to last year: kayaking, hiking Diamond Head, seeing dolphins, going to the Polynesian Cultural Center, seeing and swimming with sea turtles.
The family shot in the middle is the one shot that I set up and use my remote and timer for on every vacation, so that I actually appear in at least one photo. Timer photos always end up looking a bit stiff, but at least we're all in the shot.
Here's what happens when someone else takes the family shot:
It's cute, but the fact that we're all bunched in the corner, ready to walk out of the photo (and it was worse before I cropped more off the right side) drives me bonkers. That's what I get for being a photo snob, I guess.
This last shot sums up why I'm so glad Hawaii is a state:
How can you not love a state that dolls up the stick figures on their airport restrooms? How's that for some Aloha?
