I'll make another blog post about our Hawaiian Vacation when/if the car rental company sends us our digital camera back (we forgot it in the car!!!). These are pictures that one of my friends took:
These were two of my college roommates, Jamie and Adrian. Jamie lives in Hawaii and Adrian lives in Utah. Adrian kept telling me how sorry she was that she couldn't come out for my graduation. Then when I was there I saw Jamie approach (who I was expecting) but then Adrian snuck up on me from behind! I was so happy to see the two of them that I started crying! Best surprise EVER!
I got a bunch of leis and I was so happy! Do you see the one in the middle at the top? A Polynesian mother made it for her daughter who graduated but her daughter had a ton of leis being put on her. The mother saw me and walked up to me and put it on me. She said her daughter didn't need any more. Isn't that the sweetest thing ever? I have missed the Aloha Spirit so much and that was a shining example of it!
Afterwards we went out to eat in Haleiwa at Pizza Bobs. I ordered the Avocado Bacon Cheeseburger and it was the best burger I've ever had! No lie!
On our way back to the condo we stopped at a fruit stand that was also selling jewelry. Mom bought these bracelets for us girls so we could be "bracelet buddies"!
Once Kien warmed up to the water he had a lot of fun in it.
