Hawaii, Part 2
Before anymore time passes, I figured I better get the rest of those Oahu photos on our blog. It has been a very rainy month (going on 20 plus days of rain here in Snoqualmie) so it is a good time to post these photos and remember warm, sunny days! I loved spending the end of the day on our beach. It was so great to listen to the surf and when it got really dark, we discovered lots of little crabs emerging from the sand.
We spent one day at the Polynesian Cultural Center in the northern part of the island. I'm glad we made this trip cuz we all had a good time. Millie got to catch a catfish, got several tattoos and even learned how to play a few new island games....
After we left the PCC, we went in search of the famous Giovanni's shrimp truck. It may not look pretty, but they cook some very delicious shrimp out of this truck. In fact, it is one of the most famous shrimp trucks on the entire island. I highly recommend it!
Millie loves shrimp, too!
...and we can't leave Hawaii without eating some of their shave ice.
The hardest part was deciding on which flavors we wanted!

Millie went floating around the bottom of the waterfall at Waimea Valley. The water was SO cold!
Relaxing in our cottage at the end of a very wonderful, amazing holiday! We'll definitely be back again.
