I decided that if Utahn's would listen to Hawaiian music on their commute there would be less aggressiveness on the roads. You really cannot feel aggressive while partaking of such things and really anyone can sing along. I think I may have gotten Brian hooked on the stuff!
Hawaii is amazing! I highly recommend it along w/the above mentioned music. The weather (yep even the wind), the food, the glorious blue water, the people, and last but certainly not least, the TAN skin (fat and skinny). The only thing I don't like in Hawaii is the Luau fish food, well, and the bill! (but don't worry, I made Dave pay it). On the other hand, My hair absolutely hates Hawaii or anywhere humid for that matter. I bet if I lived there, I would Sinead O'connor it.
It seems the majority of our time we spent w/either food or liquid. The liquid we spent the majority of the time in left you w/that "just ate a bag of sunflower seeds" feeling. The liquid we consumed most of the time started w/Lava and ended w/Flow. Its crazy how you can still get drunk off the sugar even if its virgin. I could get drunk off coconut candy though and theres no liquid in that.

Dave thought I was a dork
|The Gazebo. Excellent pancakes.|
|Brian and Dave catching the BYU game|
|We tried to eat out less than last time but we didn't eat less|

|My best old man friend in Hawaii|
|Always wondered what a Hula Pie is?|
|It wasn't our best dessert but we still did okay eating it all|
|Dave learned to paddle board|
|Our favorite "Mario" in Hawaii|
|Brian loves to take ridiculous pics of me but I am a good subject for that|
|After we had been given the third degree of Maui's strict liquor laws|
Funny enough you can roll a joint in parks there but they
are tough on the liquor. That darn commissioner.
Kinda ruined to start to our night
|What can be said, He loves the coconut cake.|
|Our first and maybe only landing on Lanai but we had to swim|
"all" the way there.
|We were glad the dolphins joined our snorkel trip|
|We went to the Feast at LeLe again.|
I don't so much like the feast but the Leis are great
|and some of us overdid it on the frosty "free" beverages|
|Dave surfed a little on our last day there|
We all surfed and that was pretty fun
I had a little fear of it but I got over the worry of sharks pretty fast
because it seems that coral is more dangerous
|Dave eating his giant mistake of a burger at Kool Kats|
|Dave was always scouting out the next meal|
|Road to Hana aka Road to carsick|
|They even have beautiful spiders in Hawaii|
|Near the sacred pools at Haleakala National Park|
|Water falls at the sacred pools.|
|The magic show was so great, even Dave disappeared|
or maybe he was looking at sunglasses
|My 2nd favorite photo op while we were there. |
My first favorite also qualifies as my greatest regret-see ending!
|In our Hotel or whatever in the crap its called|

Right down to the shoes.
|Snorkel trip and great example of my hair issues.|
|My plate before eating|

|Lisa conquered a lot of fears on the trip but this was me conquering one |
of my own called "going into dark caves w/out a flashlight (actually lava tube)
w/weird snake like things all around me. I survived!
|When we found our way out of the dark Lava tube.|
Good news, those weren't snakes.
|Dave wanted to buy this for a yard decoration but we didn't know how we would get it home|
since our flight was full and she was sure to need her own seat. Dave couldn't stomach the
thought of sharing his seat w/a large thing on the way home too!
|Just wondering if you notice anything |
or things that are odd in this pic
and yep I think he caught me
I saw a genuine Hawaiian Luna the last day there. I'm not sure many people have this rare opportunity. I consider myself to be extremely lucky. My one regret while there was that I didn't convince Dave to drive back so I could photograph it. We were driving in Maui rush hour (which pretty much no one is in a rush, minus tourists) and we come upon a car broken down on the side of the road and as we pass I turn around to see a man standing under the hood of the car w/his "WHOLE" butt out of his pants. This was no gansta' style either, it was purely Hawaii's version of plumber crack. He was full mooning all the traffic headed back from work that day. People really might look forward to the evening commute in Hawaii. How fun!
My Mom and Dad had the kids for the week days while we were gone and Neve said "you have ugly hands but I still don't want to go to my other grandmas" to my Mom. I think she thought if she said she still wanted to stay there, the criticism wouldn't sting quite so much. Ella was flabbergasted and so upset that Neve would be so rude but my Mom has embraced her age and just laughed. When I was told the story I reprimanded Neve and said "Neve you don't say that to people, that is rude" and she matter of fact replied "but Mom I had to because they are ugly, but they have a heart on them and I like that". She has a few hand veins that make a heart shape so I guess that also is supposed to make her comments okay because the heart is cute.
