At the end of June my parents were nice enough to take my little brother and i to Hawaii for a week! It was so much fun and probably one of my favorite family vacations I have ever been on. I loved hiking Diamondhead, playing in the ocean (which if anyone knows my family, it is a big deal to be able to go to do water activities), visiting the Pearl Harbor memorial, being able to go to the Laie Temple and so many other fun things!
My mom, Shaun and I with a veteran that was there when Pearl Harbor was attacked
At the Pearl Harbor Memorial with the moment in the background along with the U.S.S. Missouri
My dad and I on the the trail up Diamondhead with Honolulu in the background. Gorgeous, huh?
At the top on Diamondhead with Waikiki in the background, there was some amazing views up there and the hike was great!
At the Laie Temple, the temple and the grounds are gorgeous
Waimea Falls, we weren't allowed to swim because of the increased amount of rain they have been getting...bummer
My cousins and I with our tour guide (who was hilarious) at the Polynesian Culture Center (Shaun and Colton were trying to do their best haka faces!)
Beautiful Sunset beach
My parents along the beach at Waikiki...beautiful waterfall, huh?!
The Dole Plantation...I had to take one
The moment at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, also called the Punchbowl Cemetery
A great pic from our last day in Hawaii
I love being in a more tropical climate than we have here in Idaho! It was so much fun and I will definitely being going back there but, probably on my own ticket rather than my parents. If you are ever thinking about going to Hawaii for a vacation....DO IT! It is gorgeous, the weather is wonderful and there are so many good sites to see and I only went to Oahu!
