I'm Back!! (OT-Hawaii vacay) **added pics

WOW, that was such an awesome trip!! I don't have the time to reply to all the posts since I've been gone (WTG everyone....you've been so busy....LOVE LOVE LOVE all the new pages). Anyways, this is a short recap:
Flight got delayed a day and a half on the way there...ugh. But American Airlines extended our flight two days (that's why we didn't get back until just today) for us. So we spent the first night in the airport. Not fun with a toddler, but it was worth it considering the great trip ahead.

Then we stayed three days at Waikiki Beach. The wedding was on the morning after we arrived. It was gorgeous!! We spent one day at Kailua with relatives and driving around the island. Then we spend 2 more days at Hawaii Kai in my grandfather's condo.

Ok, and I know you are all thinking: WHERE ARE THE PICS!!! Wink They are coming! We took over 250, so I need to go through them. You can bet you'll see lots of pages in the near future. I'm making a scrapbook of just our Hawaii vacation.

Anyways, nice to be back! Dirol

ETA some pics!

These were the coolest trees

It was rough. Wink

I will have tons of scrapbook pages, so I won't share anymore just yet. LOL!

Oh wow, those are great! I am so jealous.

Question for you...
Did you use a polarizer and an SLR to get those shots?

We don't have a polarizer, but our camera is an Olympus E1. Very awesome camera...we got a crazy deal on Ebay for it. It was hardly used adn we got it for like a 10th retail.:) I LOVE IT!

Thank you all!

I love your pictures! Glad you had a good time and everyone made it there and back safely. just out of curiosity, where in central tx are you? (have I asked you that already?) I am originally from San Marcos and my folks are still there.

Anywho, can't wait to see the scrap pages with these! I think the tree pic is my fav so far

wow!!! awesome pictures, can't wait for the layouts!!!!!! I so want to go back there. I was telling Rich that I really would love to do a family vacation there. But 12 hours in a plane with four kids and then a five hour time difference is just painful (not to mention the cost). Maybe when they're older. So I'll have to live through people like you. I've been to that zoo! And I'm with you, I dig the cool trees. Did you eat kahlua pig (at a luau) while you were there? mmmmm ....that's the best!!!

anyhow, glad you had a great time, but welcome home!

Yes, it was really hard travelling with K, I can't even imagine with 4 kids! :eek: No, we never got to try the kahlua pig, but I bet it's great! That's cool that you have been to the same zoo.
