Hawaii Part 1: Aloha

I'm taking a little break from my 20 people who inspire, because Gideon and I are taking our first real vacation since our honeymoon. Our anniversary isn't till September (oh glorious fall), but we're pretending this is our one year anniversary vacation.

It's such bliss to be in love.

After a early morning two flights (one, as you know, very loong), we were in Oahu. We were so blessed to have some friends of ours pick us up from the airport and allow us to stay with them for our one night stay in Laie.

In 30 short hours, we were able to:

-have a FABULOUS photoshoot on the beach, in the jungle, and everywhere else you can imagine. (more on our shoot, and more importantly our incredible photographers later)

- experience LAIE DAYS, a community celebration with music, dancing, and food.

- see "HA- The Breath of Life", the show at the Polynesian Cultural Center.
It was nothing short of phenomenal. I laughed, I cried, and now want to learn how to be a fire throwing man dancer.

-check out the campus of BYU-H.

...any campus with long board racks has got to be super rad. Am I right? I'm right.

These flags represent all of the different countries BYU Hawaii students are from.

And we enjoyed this overpriced ice cream as much as we absolutely could.

I love the spirit on that campus. It was just beautiful. 
We were also blessed to be able to visit the Laie Temple Grounds, and the incredible visitor center.

Around 9:00 at night, we got on a plane headed for Kauai, the Garden Island.
More to come on our adventures.
