Janelle In Real Life: Hawaii trip!


Hawaii trip!

Remember how I went to Hawaii last month and never blogged about it? You probably thought "Oh good, she's not going to show us a jillion pictures of her vacation... dodged a bullet there." Except you were wrong because here I am blogging about it a month later.

It was the best vacation I've ever been on.
We did sooooo many fun things and I was with the man that I love so I don't know how it could have been better!

We got a hotel on Waikiki beach in Honolulu (a central location since we wouldn't be renting a car for the trip). We chose a "city view" room because of the cheaper rate buuut ended up with a partial ocean view! Here's the view from our room at the Outrigger Waikiki

I was really happy with the hotel that we chose! It wasn't super expensive and was totally perfect for what we needed.
And here's our view from the beach right in from of the hotel!

While we were in Hawaii we did a few fun excursions! 
We hiked Diamond Head crater,

went the the Polynesian Cultural Center & had a yummy luau dinner,

visited the Laie LDS temple visitor's center

Went snorkeling at Hanauma Bay (probably my favorite)!

visited Pearl Harbor, including the Arizona memorial & Missouri battleship,

(this was Steven's favorite... he's a history buff and loved learning all the cool facts about Pearl Harbor. I have to admit, even though I'm not as into history as he is, I loved visiting here!)

aaaand, we went on a sunset Catamaran ride!

We also did some shopping, explored the beach/city, and of course did lots of swimming.
Steven and I totally needed a getaway like this. Having kids is so wonderful and fun, but it definitely makes life very routine. It was fun to do something really out of the ordinary and get to spend lots of one on one time together! And I only cried once for missing my little one :)

Hope you enjoyed reading about our fun little Hawaii adventure!
