Hawaii

Aloha! A few months back my sister-in-law asked us if we'd be interested in going to Hawaii, as they would be there for a wedding and had a place for us to stay. We were even invited to the wedding (Mahalo Max + Karli!)! After talking about it, we decided we couldn't pass it up. We spent our first few days on the island of Kauai, and the rest in Honolulu. From lots of snorkeling, to hiking the Napali Coast, to ziplining, horseback riding, luaus, shave ice, and countless beaches - it was an unforgettable experience. Did I mention shave ice? (seriously, though) I could bore you with the details of the 10 days we spent there, but i'll just share some highlights of the trip below. Pictures don't do Hawaii justice. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as we enjoyed Hawaii - which is a lot.

Tunnels Beach, Kauai. Fun fact - this is where Bethany Hamilton was attached by a shark. Luckily we didn't run into any while we were there :)

If we lived in Kailua, we would definitely keep this place in business. If you're ever there - GO.
