Day 1 in Waikiki, Hawaii


Happy Friday! Ok, so I'm up and it's 4:30am {thanks, jet lag} but I totally don't care because that just means more time to have fun in Hawaii! We landed yesterday morning and hit the ground running... well, not running, thanks to a car mix up at the rental place, followed by a loooonnnnngggg grocery shopping trip -5 people gotta eat! But once we dropped our bags and food, we all but did cartwheels down to the beach.

It was a bit cloudy but still 80 and perfect out. The kids went to there usually swimming spot and jumped right in. Well, Jake not so much. We walked, got ice cream and headed back to the hotel for a little dip in the hot tube. It was a super relaxing evening. Today, we're off to be more adventurous... hiking to some waterfalls and snorkeling at some local beaches! Here are snippets from last night! 


Have a great weekend!
