We have been back almost a week and its such a sad reality to come back to. I have to focus on real life now, and who wants that?! There is so much I could post about Hawaii but I am going to try to break it down into a few pics from the day with Highlights and Lowlights

There was definitely some low moments, but in all honesty it wasn't bad. We were in Paradise for 8 days and not worrying about diets or how many drinks we consumed. It was a trip of a lifetime and I won't ever forget it! Mahalo, Hawaii. Thanks mom and dad!
