2013 Vacation – Part 1

In August we were fortunate to be able to take a nice vacation to Hawaii with Grandma Connie and Grandpa Kent. This is probably the last time we’ll be able to take a big family vacation together as next year Emily will be off to college.

We’ve been to Oahu before but there is always so much to do that we haven’t seemed to tire of that island yet. We had a wonderful view of the sunset from the beach outside our hotel.

We made a list of 10 possible activities and then had each person vote on what they wanted to do. Each day we did one or two activities on the list. By the end of the trip we had done every single activity. One day we made a trip to the Pacific Aviation Museum. It was interesting seeing all the cool planes and aviation history of the islands although it seemed like the ladies lost interest in planes and helicopters much more quickly than the men did.
