Oahu, Hawaii Vacation

  • Part 2 | Volcanoes, 4 Wheeling and Cliffs for Days!

One week ago we were on a plane leaving one of the most beautiful islands on the planet! This vacation was absolutely amazing and I’m sad that it has come and gone. However, I have so many new pictures still left to share! Last week I shared part ONE from our trip and today I’m sharing PART TWO! We’re going to start this post with our air tour!

Hawaii Big Island Vacation

  • Part 1 | Volcanos, Waterfalls & Plane Rides

We surprised them on Christmas Eve with a trip to Hawaii and to be honest, it seemed like it was FOREVER away! At Christmas time, you think that Easter is so far away but somehow it creeps up on you! We left Easter Sunday and we started our trek to the west coast! We made it to LA and spent the night there! It was a GREAT way to break up the trip! Michael planned everything and he did such an amazing job! There is no way we could have made it and accomplished so much without his travel agent skills!!! He made sure we all made it through the airport and that all of our lodging and days were planned out!
