Hawaii etc.



Let the updates begin....

I've been postponing my blog report about Hawaii until I could buy my Mac, edit all the fun videos we took, put them to a great Hawaiian song, and upload the video. But, it still might be awhile before we take the plunge, so why make you suffer! :)

Here are some pics from Hawaii. We had such a great, relaxing trip. We flew over (1st class) direct from Phoenix to Maui. We stayed in one place the whole time, ate Mahi Mahi every day inone form or another, and went snorkeling every day except Sunday! It was our kind of vacation!




Another day we took a boat out to snorkel different sides of the island. We signed up to do the 'snuba' diving, which is a mixture between snorkeling and scuba diving. You are attached to a 25 foot hose that hooks into an oxygen tank that is floating around up on top (see pic). So, you are free to hang out 25 feet below water for 45 minutes or so and explore! It really was unique. Dave LOVED it and ended up doing two dives (I just did one).

We biked down Haleakala one day -- on our own this time -- with no group -- so we got to go at our own speed, stop when we wanted to, etc. It was great! The weather was perfectly cloudy -- not too hot or too cold or too sunny!
Another day we met up with Marilyn (my sister) and Matt -- who were there for their 25th anniversary. We went zip lining with them! It was lots of fun -- it went from really short and easy zips to a really LONG one over a canyon! Just wait for the video that will be coming soon!


Here is our sweet Teya in her dress that we got her in Hawaii. We got little plumeria flowers for her hair also! So fun!


Over Memorial Day weekend, we went with our dear friends The Barrett's up to their family cabin near Show Low. The weather was wonderful and cool. The kids did some zip lining -- even Teya -- on their home-rigged lines on the property.

One morning, they caught a baby bunny (named Bugsy) and had him for a pet for a few hours. We had a great time, saw several hail storms, deer, elk, blue birds, and even snow!

So glad I checked the blogs today! What a fun trip you guys had. I'll admit - I am sort of jealous...I think we may have gone out to dinner for our tenth anniversary (with a kid in tow?) I would have been way to chicken to try the snuba diving (or the mahimahi for that matter)- but I bet it was amazing. And the cabin sounds like it went great. It would be fun to see you guys this summer. Any UTAH plans???

Awesome trip! Can't wait to see the videos. That is my dream destination. Snuba sounds awesome.

As far as Utah plans, we're going to Aspen Grove June 27-July 3, and then we're going up to Idaho July 3-12, then back one short night in Utah and fly out the 13th. Let me know if you're going to be in Idaho or Utah during that time.

Any Aspen Grove advice for me?

Sounds like an amazing trip... always so fun to get away and be a twosome again!! My girls are in love with the baby bunny, but then again, who isn't?
