I don't like macadamia nuts, but I swear I could lap that pie up pretty fast!

I have mentioned Hawaii for our 50th anniversary, but DH just doesn't want that long of a plane ride! I got to start pushing his butt a bit harder!

Push hard Wicket's Mom! DW and I just returned from Aulani for our 30th and it was fantastic! The plane trip is long but when we go back, we will break it up with a stop over on the west coast.

I'll keep my eye out for the taco truck in Dec.

If you get on Marriott's mailing list you'll get some deals if you listen to their timeshare spiel. We've stayed their twice and one time there was a guy in a speedo doing a different sand sculpture each day.



Our DS went to college with a guy that lives on Maui and raises cattle on Kauai and Maui so we stopped at his ranch on both islands last January. Very beautiful views. The one on Kauai is on the same road as you take out to the falls.

I can't wait to hear what you think about Aulani and see your pics.

Exactly. I guess somebody pays that.

I'm hoping my kids will be up for the hike on the 1st part of the Kalalau Trail to the first beach (2 miles). I'd like to at least see the Na Pali Coast that way since I doubt we'll spring for the boat/helicopter tours. We'll try and get to Waimea Canyon on another day. The scenery just looks spectacular. And in the meantime, we'll just spend time exploring the beaches, towns and waterfalls.

I think we were just driving too fast and missed it (even though I was saying slow down and we were looking for it. ) But it must be slightly off the road. Another place I would have LOVED to go is Hamura Saimin- but the timing was just off for us when we were in the area- http://www.yelp.com/biz/hamuras-saimin-lihue That place is an institution, it has been there forever- and who doesn't love noodles?

Loving the report! Can't wait to see Aulani, but I guess that means we'll have to wait for the conclusion since you're in single digits!

So now you have me curious. I had to google Groveland, never been to Yosemite. What Hampton Inn are you staying in on the way to DL? Will you be coming down the I5 or 101? Listen to me! Ha! I'm more concerned with your PTR for this trip than your Aulani trip....

Ok back to Aulani!

Okay, so I'm just going to ignore the single digit dance.

I'm a little concerned that this is supposed to be an "anniversary" trip but there's not much podsnel time, if you know what I mean.

So spice it up! Just how did you two sweethearts meet, anyway?

Hi! Thanks so much for joining in and for saying hello- I get lonely over here when people don't say hi!

My kids don't like mac nuts either (or maybe Tyler does, but he just had enough!) but they loved that pie.... I bet you would, too-
And you really need to work on your DH- Hawaii is a special, special place. It is completely different from ANY Caribbean island. I promise it is worth the trip.

How cool! And thanks for the tip!

I'm sure we saw some of his livestock- it was all ranchland on the way out to those falls.

I can't wait to hear what you think about Aulani and see your pics.
Planning to start it today (as I avoid cleaning up my messy house!).

I'm sure they could do it- my best advice for adults is build up your thigh muscles before you go because you will be using those muscles a LOT! Also- PROMISE me you won't try it in flip flops or sneakers- there are alot of rocks, and they are definitely wet and slippery.


(furiously taking notes)
Glad this is helpful for you! Something we wanted to do, but never had the time for, was a bike ride on the Coconut coast- there is an AWESOME bike path along the ocean for several miles- the bikes are cheap to rent, and there are discounts. Timmy and I were sad we missed this. Here is a link- http://www.coconutcoasters.com/ What I love about it, is that you can bring a picnic lunch with you and make a day of it- and it's a relatively cheap thing to do-

Thanks everyone! Only 1 week to go! Good thing that bad storm is supposed to be out of here by Weds- just hope this one is not as damaging as the 2 we had last year...
