AAAAAloha!!!!!

Okay so I went to the Dole Pineapple farm - which some friends of mine said it was "dull", and it was, sort of.  However, they had this pineapple ice cream that makes my mouth water just typing about it!
The snow cones, or "shaved ice" as they call it there is AMAZING!!!  Underneath that shaved ice is a scoop of vanilla ice cream!!!  That is probably the biggest reason as to why I want to move to Hawaii.
Waimea Canyon was like the Grand Canyon of Hawaii - amazing, but a long drive to get there.The Hawaii Temple - beautiful, as are all temples.Pearl Harbor - it made me cry.  The North Shore of Oahu was amazing, and it was fun to play in the waves and watch the sunset in Hawaii.  I drank coconut milk right from a real live coconut...I know, I'm a Co - co - NUT!!!  By the way that juice went right through me!  Not that you all care to know that...There is a lot of juice in that co - co - nut...I kept sucking and it just kept coming!  We went to the Volcano National Park, and saw a volcano erupting, and blowing smoke.  Hot air...if you know what I mean?  I felt right at home with this sign...I should have a sign like that to put in my bathroom.Us gals hanging out at the one and only famous Waikiki Beach.  One of the many waterfalls that we saw on the Islands...notice my hair - totally humid there, it became pointless to wear makeup and even do my hair!  In fact the day we were on Maui I got hit on by this guy (who wasn't bad looking...) working in the surf shop!  Believe me, I was not looking my best, and he was all about hooking up with me?  I was burnt red, my hair was salt water wet, and to top it off I had no makeup on!  Not a pretty sight, but he was ready to get on the cruise ship with me and come back to Utah - no thank you!!!I LOVE HAWAII - FIRST MILLION I MAKE I WILL BE MOVING TO MAUI - WOWIE (or would you spell it Waui???)!!!  Actually my favorite island was Oahu (Honolulu).  There sure wasn't enough time to play on each island, but what time was had was used wisely, and was totally 100% FUN, FUN, FUN!!!

I'm so jealous! That looks like you had a really fun time in Hawaii. You can't even tell that it's technically winter. Meanwhile we're getting pretty cold here in the Midwest. I'd love to be in Hawaii now! I love the picture of the sunset!

I need to correct you. It is coconut water, it does not turn to milk untill the coconut gets old and brown. I drank fresh coconut water all the time on my mission. I tried to get shellie to drink some, but she is to chicken.
