A couple weeks ago, Linda came to visit. This was her fifth trip to Hawaii so we decided it was time to venture off Oahu. We chose Molokai for a variety of reasons but mainly because of the book Molokai. She recommended it to me when I moved here the first time and after we visited, I couldn’t wait to go back with her. We left on Thursday evening and landed around 5:30 PM. We stopped at Saint Joseph Church (one of Saint Damien’s churches), checked in to our Airbnb (which was amazing), ran to the grocery store for coffee and snacks, and finished with dinner and live music at Paddlers Inn.
Last weekend we went to the beach with my mom who is visiting us. Luckily for us, there was a monk seal hanging out. He/she decided they were done looking at everyone and decided burying their head was a great idea. Love this picture!
This is how I’m feeling about tomorrow being Monday.
A couple weeks ago, my aunt Jan and uncle Bob came to visit. We did all sorts of fun things including hiking, snorkeling, kayaking and eating all sorts of food. So happy they were able to come spend some time with us. We had an amazing time!
Josh’s parents were in town last week so we decided to explore Kaneohe Bay one day and visit the sandbar. After looking at it for the past 8 months, we decided it was time to actually see what it was all about. Josh and I rented paddle boards and his parents kayaked. It was the perfect day and just stunning!
One of Krista’s bucket list items was to jump off a waterfall while in Hawaii. We decided to hike to Waimano Falls to accomplish that. This was a first for me (even though I didn’t jump). It was a great hike and I was so happy to try something new!
A few weeks ago we finally celebrated Josh’s birthday by having an amazing dinner at Fête. Everything we had was amazing but I think my favorite was the homemade Rocky Road ice cream (the marshmallows were homemade as well). So delicious!
