Paradise

This trip took almost 2 years of planning, 8 years of wishing, and 1 set of parents to go on a mission and leave their time-share behind - and it was absolutely fabulous! We loved being there with Shayne and Lea.

Every morning we ate breakfast on our balcony with stunning views, we packed lunches with camelbacks for daily hikes to waterfalls, got bitten by a million mosquitoes, saw dolphins 2 feet in front of us, discovered hidden pools for lap swimming, snorkeled daily with Swedish goggles :), went on bike rides, swallowed mountain-loads of shaved ice, kicked up amazing waves, ate at the world-famous Puka-Dogs (twice!), and got a tattoo!!

We were a crazy lot.

(don't miss the last picture. My favorite by far.)

Wow, those are amazing photos. To say I am jealous would just not convey it. Glad you had a chance to do it.

Diego says he wants to go on a tandem bike with Greg some time. "Maybe we can do some trails."

Erin said...

Britt said...

Yup. Jealousy has just hit. Looks like Greg has his "groove" on. And is that a real tattoo? Knowing you I don't think so, but you never can tell...

Seriously! What? Not fair.

What a fun trip. Cute swimsuits Rae you look so cute in all the pictures. I like the last one of Greg is he doing some kind of booty dance?? The "I love Hawaii" booty dance? :)
