... Is a real good tan....
We had a fabulous trip for our Christmas holiday! Last year, when we got to talk to Kyle for Christmas, we asked him if he would like Mark and I to come and pick him up from his mission...or we would take the whole family to Hawaii for Christmas in 2008. He thought about it for a week or two, shoveled piles of snow in Bulgaria, and then decided that a trip to Hawaii sounded like a lot of fun! And a lot warmer!!! So, we began making plans.
We warned all 4 kids that they would be receiving no gifts, but would get a trip instead. They were all very happy to comply with that and started to get excited, too.
One of the best things that happened, was that when I invited my sister, Dee Ann, and her family along for the fun, they accepted! So, they made their way as well and we met on Oahu on Dec. 22nd. We spent a couple of days on the Big island, then made our way to Maui, where we spent about 5 days.
The last day we spent on Oahu at Pearl Harbor, and BYU Hawaii and the Polynesian Cultural Center. We came home on Dec 30.
We had the time of our lives! it was just incredible! It didn't feel too much like Christmas, though! the best part was hanging out with the Prince's and seeing the sights together.
Following are some posts about all the adventures we had together.
