Day 2

Our second day there, we drove North Shore, my favorite part of the island. I have made that drive countless times and have memories on every beach along the way. We first stopped at Valley of the Temples and then at Chinaman's Hat. We made our way up to Laie. I could have shed a tear I was so happy to be there again. We drove around campus, the big circle and little circle. Alumni, you know what I am talking about. And stopped at the temple. Then temple is under construction, but the visitor's center is all new. I wish we could have spent more time there, walked around campus, but there was too little time in the day. We drove up to Haleiwa and had lunch and then went to Dole.

Cutest kid ever. Right?
Addi is really into posing for the camera. She was letting the fan blow her hair.
Valley of the Temples. I had actually never been there before, so it was neat to do something new. It was so pretty there.
Running free.
Buddah and the Clawsons.
Brooke and Tristan.
Home Sweet Home in Laie.We like big glasses.
Addi and her Auntie.
The girls. If the flower is on your left it means you are married, the right, not.
The guys enjoying the best pineapple ever.
When we got back, we walked to Kailua beach to get in the water. The water was even warm enough that I got in.
On one of our last days there, Ian, Chelcie, Bronson, Brooke, Armando and I kayaked to the island you see on the left in this picture. It was so far. Definitely a good workout.

I'm jealous. Hawaii is totally your home sweet home. You and Ian were engaged there and I'm sure have tons of great memories with all of your friends. When I was there for 1 semester, you totally took care of me & hung out and gave me rides. You are the sweetest.
