Hello lovely friends! As we travel home today from 14 days of great fun, laughter and beautiful memories, I wanted to share with you a few photos of my family and my trip. This first one is the gorgeous view from the house my parents rented for 10 days. It was the best Christmas seeing my family. The first time in 2 years. 


We went to botanical gardens with beautiful and gorgeous waterfalls. These are my parents with my three little ones. πŸ™‚

And saw a beautiful peacock that spread his wings when his ladies walked by. It was amazing!


For Christmas, my brother took us out on the Ko’ Olina sail boat that he works on to go sailing and snorkeling. It was amazing!


We saw amazing dolphins swimming up to our boat! And whales that swam in front of the home we rented!


Here we are all ready to go snorkeling. My little Lizzi who is six was a pro at snorkeling! All those swimming lessons paid off. She did so well!

    So happy you and your family enjoyed your Christmas holiday on our beautiful island of Oahu! The weather was perfect for you all, and now that you have returned home, the “vog” is covering our islands as the volcano on the Big Island is still active. Happy New Year!

    Hawaii looks beautiful! Glad you had a wonderful trip. My husband and I took a cruise last Jan. and walking on those beaches and swimming in the winter was amazing. I loved every minute of it, made even more special by being able to spend time away from everything with my husband. Your trip looks like one of those special experiences, too.
