#21 Go to Hawaii

Then we went to a Luau which was the yummiest feast I've ever had! I even tried poke, which is raw fish! Hawaiian dancers did the hula the whole time and we even got our own lei's!

Okay, so I know I already made a list of 20 things I want to do this year, but I have a feeling some might fall through and I thought it would be fun to list other fun things I'm doing this year, just to make up for it. So here goes number 21! Hawaii!!

Sunset on Waikiki

This was the best trip I've ever been on! I loved every moment of it and DID NOT want to come home. Here's some of the things we did...
 Me and Haylee
The first night we arrived, we made a beeline down the street for Kuhio Beach!

Daddy and I at Pearl Harbor
The next day we went to Pearl Harbor which was an amazing experience. We took a tour of a submarine, took a boat to the USS Arizona memorial where 1177 men died and are still entombed in the ship, and then took another tour of the USS Missouri which was the very last American battleship. It was the same boat where WWII officially ended and also where my grandpa served for a while. It was really neat to walk throughout the ship's hallways and to think that my grandpa walked through those same passageways long ago.

Me at Hukilau Beach on our way to the Polynesian Cultural Center

The Polynesian Cultural Center in Laie was my favorite part of the whole vacation... can you guess why? Yeah... it was probably the hunky boys scaling palm trees... or this guy...
Mom and myself at the luau drinking a smoothie out of a pineapple!

Mom, Haylee and I
We went on a hike threw the rainforest up to Manoa Falls...

Hanauma Bay
We went to one of the best snorkeling beaches in the world! We were there for nearly 10 hours because it was so much fun!
One of the many colorful fish swimming around in the coral.
Me, Mom and Haylee at the Dole Pineapple Plantation! They picked us a fresh pineapple and we ate the whole thing right there! It was the best fruit I've ever eaten!

Coming home was so hard! I could have stayed there forever! The water is crystal blue, the air feels so good, the mountains where breathtaking... I just absolutely loved every single moment! I can't wait until I can go back someday!

Aloha! Mahalo Cousins!
