My goodness I have not really caught my breath since getting home, so posting has definitely taken a back seat to everything else! Madeline had her field day today and I can’t download those pictures til I finish with Hawaii or it will never get done:)
I never took my good camera out of the bag the entire vacation….truly due to laziness but I figured the real photographers would catch the good stuff anyway ha! Thanks Di and Jenn!
I have always stunk at taking iphone pics but John David messed with my phone and it takes pretty good ones now!
On Wednesday Hank and I flew on a baby plane to Oahu to see a friend Darin. He took us all over the island and showed us the “local” areas. It was gorgeous!!!
I took this from a moving car, so pretty!
A beach on the North Shore
I wanna go back!
This may show my stupidity….
I did not know pineapples grow right on the ground!
I believed there was such a thing as pineapple trees…
in my defense we don’t grow pineapples in Tennessee
they grow on the ground on what looks like a yucca plant
which we do have in Tennessee
but they are so so ugly in Tennessee!
I felt right at home at the airport when we arrived back in Maui!!
Wednesday night we went to Lahaina Grill
best meal ever!!!
next to Mama’s Fish House….
This is my favorite picture of the entire trip!
I can’t even express how much fun we all had together…
truly dear friends forever!
And to think that adoption brought us all together…
one of those extra special God touches!
Thursday started off gorgeous
within an hour or so it began raining
the girls tried to wait it out
but even the towels over the cabana didn’t help lol!
Gardner texted me Janie’s latest get up!
the day ended gorgeous!
another great dinner….
my cook here just does not perform as well as the cooks in Hawaii…
maybe I should fire her????
on our way to the airport on Friday we stopped at Kimo’s again….
our last meal with a view
I’m so thankful to have been able to go on this trip!
It was a much needed break for both of us…
hoping to go again some day:)

Love that you have made such good friends through the adoption community and that you got to go away on a trip with them!
