The King of surfing.
Okay my chocolate loverlies. If you love caramel or chocolate or macadamia nuts then you may understand my slight addiction to my most favorite Hawaiian treat. I am sure I brought up their amazing existance to AMC on a billion occasions. Muai Caramacs. Now that I think of it, we only purchased 14 or 15 boxes. Yikes. I take that 'slight' comment back.
These trees were unreal! The trunks were massive. Then, from each of the large branches, there were even more branches that vertically grew back into the earth. Phenomenal.
My little Tarzan... I had so much fun watching him run up the tree like a wild jungle man. I find myself smiling as I realize how much fun we have together.
Clearly, I'm Jane. Uncertain and clumsy.
We walked down the Waikiki beach and it felt so good listening to the reggae music blaring from various restaurants while watching hula dancers dance away during our first sunset in Hawaii.
My heart leaped when I saw the map of the islands on the cement floor. My great-grandfather, Forest Packard, was captured on Wake Island. He served as a POW for 5 years during WWII in Japanese camps. I loved that I've been able to read so many compilations of records and journal entries from him and those that knew him while in the prison camps. I know that his posterity has been blessed because of his faith and testimony of his Savior. I really can't wait to meet him. And I'm so grateful to know that I can. I have so much to learn.
Awesome machine gun.
Boo. Japanese suicide bomber torpedo. Almost all attempts were unsuccessful. Not Boo.
Swap Meet! I saw it. Loved it. I'm pretty sure I squealed loud enough to embarrass myself in front of the dealer. Aaron made me buy it.
Hanauma Bay. Beautiful snorkeling! We bought some snorkel gear before we left for Hawaii to maximize our snorkeling time. Total waste. I only used my pair once. And if it were up to me, I wouldn't have used it at all. I am the worst cold-water pansy ever. I have little patience for it. But I did humor AMC and we (of course!) had so much fun snorkeling and snapping pictures of each other and the tropical fish with our underwater camera. (I'll add the pictures whenever I get around to developing them.)
I fell in LOVE with my Hawaii shirt : )
Yours truly, Me
