It looks wonderful my aunt and uncle lived in HI for a long time and my mom and aunt took my grandmother to see her when she was about 70 my mom said it was an awsome trip. Honestly that is not one of the places that I ever wanted to go its beautiful but I want to go to Alaska and to Europe. I love the ocean but I am satisfied with what is on the mainland. Looking forward to more report glad yall had fun you earned it.

how cool for them to live there! it was beautiful and Megan and I want to go back someday, will probably stay at Aulani or on Kauai.....did the cruise to AK in 2008, was very pretty too! Europe will wait until Megan graduates from high school, so have 6 years to safe for that!

will hope to get another post up soon....with the way the boards are so wonky today don't even want to attempt right now, ate a bunch of my posts today

Awesome start to your TR, love the pictures. My son and his girlfriend were in HI around that time Mar 25 - Apr 2. They went to Oahu and the Big Island. It looks awesome, would love to go some day! Can't wait to read more.

I am sorry it took so long for me get over here! With The Dis acting up yesterday - I didn't have the time to get everything done that I wanted to do.

I loved your HI pictures - it looks so lovely there. I am very anxious to see the rest of them.

As usual - I love your message to Jim in the sand. I know he was so happy to see you enjoying yourselves, and enjoying time with your family.

Finally know what you are saying, had lots of posts eaten yesterday
it was very pretty and loved having the sun and warmth
didn't she do a great job on the shirts
will try to post an update over the weekend!
actually the ship is smaller - they built it specifically for the islands only hold about 2,100 passengers and 1,000 crew but it was nice!

I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO furious with the DIS right now. I did a long response after I got your message that you started, and it didn't post (this has happened on other threads and to other people).

I love the start of the trip (the tribute to Jim is wonderful) and I am so looking forward to all of your pictures. We went to Hawaii for our honeymoon almost 29 years ago and I doubt we'll ever get back, so I'm enjoying seeing all of your pictures.

What a great start to your trip to Hawaii. The cruise sounds amazing. It must have been nice to spend some time with your brothers. Can't wait to hear more about your trip.

Day 2 - Maui

ok, trying to update for the third time...fingers crossed the boards co-operate!


Megan and I had a beach day planned, we ordered room service for breakfast and went to get on the bus to head for Wailea Beach!

on our way







pulling up to the beach



we got settled in with our beach chairs and umbrella and hit the ocean...the water was a bit chilly at 75 degrees













we enjoyed our time at the beach...had some yummy wraps and Hawaiian potatoe chips and relaxing in the beautiful setting...

we had 3 hours there and then headed back to the ship....we got showered and cleaned up and hit the shops and looked around a bit more before getting ready for dinner.

we ate in the Skyline restaurant again to celebrate Megan and Zach's birthdays...unfortunately we were seated right in front of the band who were extremely loud, we complained to the hostess, the head waiter and even guest services, but they refused to move us...lucky the band took a break while we were eating, but we were all fighting headaches and didn't enjoy the meal like we should of....we got out of there as quick as we could and headed out to get our family photos done









we found a spot to have the kids open up their cards/gifts and relaxed before heading to see the Aloha Polynesia show....

the show was a bunch of different dances from the polynesian islands...was very good and entertaining!

















one of the male dancers dressed up as an "auntie" and was taking out the cute hula girls


















after the show it was time for bed!

Day 3 - Maui - Lahaina

today we all went to Lahaina together...we took a free shuttle over to a mall, then the city bus....only cost us each $2.00 but had to wait an hour for the city bus.

on our way





look who we saw in the clouds






we walked around the town, looking in shops and galleries....to me this felt a bit like Key West











we had lunch at Cheeseburgers in Paradise...see key west!

walked back through town to the bus and headed back to the ship

my nephew Zach really was sick with a terrible cold, so he headed down to rest while Megan and Max hit the pool for a bit

Megan, mom and I had dinner that night in the Teppanaki restaurant, was so good - by far the best meal we had on the ship!

dang...photo bucket froze on me...will try to post more later...
