Hawaii 2012

We had a wonderful time in Hawaii.  We had 2 weeks of total rest & relaxation in paradise.  We went to the beach, snorkeled, swam with turtles, swam in the pool, went to Hanalei Bay, played mini golf, kayaked, ate Bubba Burgers, hung out with friends and family and just had a fantastic time.  There are a lot of pictures to post so I’ll do a little narrative as we go along.

13.jpg14.jpg This is a place called Lydgate Park where a man made lagoon was built.  You can see the waves crashing on the rocks.  There are some amazing fish in the lagoon and Ella was able to comfortably snorkel and see lots of fish.
