10th Anniversary Trip to Hawaii

It's been two weeks since Jeremy and I got back from Hawaii but I have been very busy and this is the first chance I have taken to upload a few pictures from our trip.

April 30th was our 10th Anniversary and we were so lucky to spend it in Hawaii. We were able to do so much in the five days we were there, it was amazing to me how much we could do with no kids. We snorkeled a few days, drove around the whole island, took a tour of Pearl Harbor, visited the Laie Temple Visitor's Center, went to the Polynesian Cultural Center, ate at some fabulous restaurants and enjoyed relaxing on the beach. It was such a great trip and was so great for Jeremy and I to have time to ourselves. So nice to reminisce about the past 10 years and how thankful we are for our marriage, our 3 (soon 4) sweet boys, a beautiful house, a great ward, and so many great friends and family, we are truly blessed with so much in our lives.

Another big thank you to Barbara, Jeremy's mom, for coming out and staying with our boys. They had so much fun and my house has never been cleaner. Double blessings to go on a fun trip and know my kids are so well taken care of. She even had to change out Eli's pump site which involves kind of a big shot and she did it perfectly, so thanks again Grandma.

Underwater pictures while snorkeling at Hanauma Bay. We bought a disposable underwater camera at walmart so the pictures aren't real great and had to be scanned. These were the only two on the whole roll that turned out.

On our anniversary, we went to a restaurant called Allan Wong's. The second picture is of my dessert, it looks like a coconut full of fruit, but it is actually coconut sorbet with a hard shell chocolate surrounding it and rolled in nuts. Even from up close it looked like a real coconut. It was a really fun night.

This is kind of cheesy but the beaches are so beautiful there and I wanted a picture to remind me the great day we spent on the North Shore.

I'm so glad you were able to have a little getaway before this next baby comes. Hawaii seems like such a dream! What a treat to come home to a super clean house too! :)

Wyatt was my morning buddy--6am no matter what--the weather was perfect - for me--not too hot- we got to hear the primary kids and ym/yw practice for the WONDERFUL mother's day program--what a fun time we had--so THANK YOU! You can go on a trip any time you want!

What a fun time you both had. Nothing like a little getaway time for Mom and Dad!!! You both look very relaxed and happy. And it sounds like the boys had fun while you were gone too!
