Hawaii / Oahu - Day 1 & 2

Terrill and I had the amazing opportunity to go to Hawaii for our 5 year anniversary!  Our anniversary is actually in March but I wanted to make sure when we went I wasn't too pregnant to do some fun things!  We arrived in Honolulu on Wednesday at 2:00.  We got our car (upgraded to a Jeep and it was so worth it), checked into our hotel and then decided to walk down to the beach.  If there was one thing we learned the first day was that Waikiki is WAY too crowded.  The beach was insane.  We jumped in the water and tried not to swim into other people.  Needless to say we didn't stay at the beach too long.  When we got back to the hotel we decided we should drive somewhere a little more quiet to go to dinner.  We found a sushi place with rave reviews about 30 mins away.  It was so nice to see the countryside a little and enjoy a delicious meal!!  After dinner we headed to the grocery store to get things for breakfast every morning.  It was a late night but so nice to be on an endless date with each other!!

The next day was pre-scheduled for the Polynesian Cultural center.  So we headed to Laie early to do a session at the temple.  That temple is SOO beautiful.  We also drove by where we used to live.  It was for sale and Terrill and I dreamed that there might be a way to buy it as a rental property since it is duplex and housing up there is super hard to come by, BUT it was selling for $695,000.  I don't think so!! oh-well, it's fun to dream.  The Polynesian Cultural Center was a blast.  The shows were awesome (although the night show was way to long). The activities at each of the villages were my favorite and the Luau was really fun too and we sat next to a really nice family from Canada.  Another late night and we were exhausted but it was so much fun!!!!!
