Hawaii, oh I miss you so!

What a whirlwind we have had of a summer. We are back from Hawaii!! We had such a great time. I can't begin to tell you how nice it is. The views, the ocean, the food... I can taste it all now. We went for a Fletcher Family vacation with Debbie, Doug and Uncle Kyle and Aunt Laura.

Chad and I agreed that we would go back in a heartbeat but we may have to wait 10 years or so for the girls to get a bit bigger. We went to a Luau, which was my favorite night. It was truly amazing. The road to Hana was awesome as well. It was a long day with over 300 curves on a long narrow road. but the end result was gorgeous. We were looking stylish in our econo-van to hold all of us. Haha! Check out the black sand beach.

I can't express into words how much fun and how relaxing it was. Oh- the best part was also sport fishing with Chad and Doug. We had to get up at 3 am and get on the boat. We saw the sun rise and caught about 4 fish between us. You see, I just started this whole fishing experience. Chad and I celebrated our 7th anniversary in San Diego and as the super cool wife I am, we went deep sea fishing. This was a complete different experience.

In Hawaii, it was on a 1.3 million dollar boat with A/C, which was nice for this city girl. It was a beautiful boat. I did not know a thing about how to reel a fish in and didn't catch much on the first go round in San Diego. In Hawaii, I caught the biggest fish on the boat. It was hilarious. The Hawaiian guy names Shadow, told Chad to not help me and let me "feel the nature". I was dying! My shoulder was burning and I would have rather birthed 10 kids then do that again. It was pretty cool, I have to admit. Thus the picture above..

We were also in Hawaii on Father's Day. We had a wonderful dinner at the Plantation House. It was amazing. They sat us right in the corner for the most perfect view. We saw the sunset as we were eating dinner. It was just gorgeous.

Now, it is back to reality in Tomball. The girls have their activities and work is full steam ahead. Oh, I miss Hawaii!
