Bethel Union

Last weekend, Josh and I went on a sporadic date night and decided to try something new. We used to go to a restaurant when we lived here the first time called Du Vin. It closed a couple years ago and Bethel Union opened in its place. The food was unique and the restaurant had a great atmosphere!

Livestock Tavern

Finally tried out Livestock Tavern for dinner last night! We’ve had delicious drinks at Livestock before but never dinner. The food was absolutely amazing and we cannot wait to go back!

Jan & Bob Visit Hawaii!

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!

Krista & Don Visit Hawaii

A few weeks ago, my cousin Krista and her husband Don came to visit. We went on many hikes, ate a ton of food and caught a sunrise. Highlights below!

Fête

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!

Happy 2017!

Just like we started last year, we began 2017 with a hike. We forced my mom to do Koko Head (and she lived!). It was an incredibly clear day so we were able to see Molokai and whales. The perfect way to set the tone for the year!

Paige Visits Hawaii!

This past week Paige came to visit! She was our first visitor since we moved back and we had a great time doing a ton of fun things on the island.

We spent her first whole day on the North Shore. Started with sky diving, enjoyed some shrimp and corn from the food trucks, saw some turtles, and had shave ice. After all of that, we were even able to muster enough energy to head into Waikiki for dinner.

Sunday, we went on one of our favorite hikes — Kuli’ou’ou Ridge. We’ve hiked this multiple times and this was the first time we ended up covered in mud.

After our hike, we went to spitting caves to see what the waves were doing. They didn’t disappoint!

During the week, Paige entertained herself with Pearl Harbor, visiting Kauai and some yoga. The next weekend we went on an ATV tour at Kualoa Ranch, which was a BLAST. This was our first time doing this and we can’t wait to do it again! The weather was beautiful and we had a great tour guide.
