Aloha! Hawaii Vacation

We were able to spend a week in Hawaii and leave Grady with Amma & Papa up in Washington. We had some fun, definitely got some sun, and tried to make the most out of our time there. Here's some pictures.

Waikiki Beach was the first beach that we went to.
The next day we visited Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial. That was a neat experience. They showed us a pretty touching video before we went out to the memorial.

That same day we were able to hit up a couple of beaches on the North Shore as well as visit the Dole Plantation.

The next couple of days we did a mixture of beaches and hikes. The Beach pictures are at Kailua Beach Park. The water is nice and blue there and pretty calm. We ended that day by going to the night show at the Polynesian Cultural Center. It was cool. Worth the $10 we were able to get in for, but probably not the $50 it usually costs.

Our favorite hike was to Manoa Falls. The falls weren't all that spectacular, but the hike was beautiful. It was like walking through the jungle. We tried to get some good pictures, I'm not sure they do it justice though.

We took a lot of pictures. Here's just a few more. Thanks Amma and Papa for watching Grady. As you can see, we were pretty tired after the busy week of vacationing.
