Back Home!!!!

Happy Thursday everyone!

Oh how I have missed all of you!!!! We are finally back home from our trip to Hawaii. We still have a ton of boxes to unpack and I can't even see my scrap room!

I thought I would take just a few minutes to share some of my favorite pictures from our trip with you.

One of our first days there we went on a whale watching trip. It is the end of the season but we still got to see several whales. I got this picture of the girls on the boat.


As a surprise for the girls we arranged to have them swim with the dolphins. They had such a great time and their instructor was really sweet.

We also took time to go see some gorgeous waterfalls and walk through the rain forest.



One of my favorite parts of the trip was the trip that we took to the volcano. There are several different craters on the big island and they have a hiking trail through one of the smaller ones. It was about a three mile hike that went around the top of the crater and then through the center of this crater.
.
.
Then after the sun started to set we went to the South side of the island to see the lava flow into the ocean. It was much cooler than any of the pictures I got showed.
As you can see we didn't do a whole lot of sitting by the pool or on the beach but it was a wonderful trip none the less. :)
.
Please check back in the next few days. I have a ton of projects that I am finally able to share with you. Until then, thank you for stopping by!
