The Honeymooners

It is getting really cold out and that depresses me. I have always hated the snow and cold weather, but I never get sick of it this early. It's going to be a long winter.

Soooooo I want to think of happier and warmer thoughts! So I decided I would indulge in reminiscence of our honeymoon in Hawaii!

Here is the view from our balcony:
We loved our Mustang Convertible:
The most AH-MAZING avacado burger from Duane's Uno Char Grill: Each restaurant claims they have the best mai tai. So Garth and I enjoyed sampling various mai tais:Every night we would sit on our balcony and sip champagne and eat sushi and enjoy the sunset:
I woke up to this one morning:
We did a little hiking to this waterfall:
Out to eat at a yummy restaurant. Don't you love the Hawaiian shirt Garth is sporting? (Thanks mom and dad!)
The honeymooners:
Our first luau at the Hyatt:
We got called up on stage to do the luau:

Garth snorkeled most of the trip while I layed in the sun:

Sad to leave:

that looks like so much fun!!! Gotta agree with the avocado burger. I am thinking about making a veggie version of that when I get home (providing I can find avocados that are actually good around here).

Thanks for sharing your pictures and experiences. I'm moving to Hawaii in March and I am quite nervous about it, but after seeing your pictures I'm really getting excited.
