My sister, brother-in-law and nephew live in Hawaii and we are going to be visiting them all next week in Oahu! We are SO excited to be taking this trip! Thomas has been to Hawaii a few times but Mila and I have never been there. I’ve always dreamed of going to Hawaii and it is crazy how this is happening now and even better because I get to spend time with my sister and her family!

Our nephew is two months older than Mila and they spent last Christmas here with us in Colorado. Mila loved playing with her cousin, so I’m excited to see them play together again and be cousins! I’m excited to spend quality time with my family in Hawaii doing lots of fun stuff!

I’m looking forward to the healing effect of being in the ocean waves, the salty air and gorgeous scenery!

We have been reading Froggy goes to Hawaii to Mila and she loves it! We keep telling her that we are going to Hawaii. It will be exciting to see what she thinks, because she has never been to the ocean before!

Here are some things we plan on doing in Oahu, Hawaii

  • staying in a beach cabin
  • swimming and hanging out on the beach
  • snorkeling
  • going to a Luau
  • hiking
  • visiting a light house
  • going to Pearl Harbor Memorial
  • visiting Waikiki, coffee shops, restaurants and shops
  • the guys are going surfing
  • visiting Pearl Harbor Memorial
  • hopefully see wildlife like sea turtles!

I’ve had this song in my head all week:

I have my fingers crossed that the flight there and back goes well for us and our 19 month old daughter!

Have you ever been to Hawaii?! What about Oahu?  I can’t wait for our trip! I’ll have lots of photos to share when we get back. Have a great week!
