For Christmas last year Jared's parents told us they were taking us to Hawaii for Thanksgiving. We have long anticipated this vacation, and then suddenly it was here and we were thrilled. With Wyn and Dee Ann affording our lodging for ten nights and our credit card miles taking care of our flight, we felt we could and should take advantage and go for five extra days. We left on Saturday the tenth and spent the evening getting settled into our bungalow. Our bungalow was AWESOME!!!!! I loved the key pad entry, which allowed us to just walk right into our room without checking in. Our room was a studio suite beautifully decorated, with wonderful luxuries. We were however surprised however that as soon as we pulled up to the bungalow, we heard roosters crowing. Our for the week had several roosters, weird, turns out roosters and hens are all over Hawaii, everywhere, it was both funny, weird and very annoying.Our bungalow was right on the beach, just a short walk across the lawn, and this was our view.
Our brother-in-law, Dave was already in Oahu for business and had been for two weeks so we met up with him that night for dinner on Waikiki. On our way there we enjoyed stopping over to a few pretty beaches.
Meanwhile in Utah my boys were having a wonderful time enjoying this years (and what feels like the only) first snow. They played in a large snow fort that my sister and some of her friends had built, they even watched a bit of a movie inside of it. :)
