It honestly takes me a week to recover after coming home from a big vacation. Such was the case this past week. We went from 85 degree weather in Oahu to below freezing her in Utah.Needless to say I prefer the warmer weather !
We had a wonderful time in Hawaii. We stayed with my daughter-in-law’s family who moved there two years ago. (They are moving back next month and will once again be our neighbors here in Utah!) A few days before we left, a coworker said to Stefyn, “Wow–your family really likes to go on vacations a lot.” Stefyn’s reply is priceless: “We don’t like to go on vacations–we like to build memories!”
Who would have known we could build a snowman in Hawaii?
Here are some of my favorite moments:
Collin learning how to surf. (Sage also had a lesson too and got up the first time!)
Sage and Brecken snorkeling:
Kade and Taylor enjoying their first Christmas together as newlyweds:
Kade, Sage and Brecken waiting for the waves to crash on them:
Sage spending every spare minute in the water:
Brecken and Zach (Taylor’s brother) jumping off China Wall:
Finally (after many tries with no luck getting tickets), a boat ride to the USS Arizona at Pearl Harbor. Very sacred, hallowed ground:
The hike to the top of Cocoa Head Crater–1048 hard, steep steps on railroad ties (I was in some serious thigh pain after the hike and it lasted for most the trip!):
Thanks for letting me share my memories with you.
I’m off to CHA for a few days where i’ll hang out with my pals Kerri Bradford and Becky Higgins! I’ll share cool findings with you next week!
Have a great weekend!
