Family pictures 2014

After coming back from our amazing vacation in Hawaii, we took pictures for our Christmas card.  We decided to see if we could take pictures back where we got married 8 years prior.  Etiwanda Gardens is now a full blown church and not a wedding venue anymore but the director said that services would be over in the afternoon and we were welcome to use the grounds.  It was amazing that they let us just roam around. 
 My favorite.  We have a similar picture from our wedding day on these steps.

Oahu- Day 3, Diamond Head, the USS Arizona Memorial, Snorking at Aulani and the Starlit Hui

 On our second day on Oahu, we had a whole lot planned.  We wanted to drive to the other side of the island and spend the day.  This is the view from our floor at Aulani as we left that morning, quiet.


Driving through the tunnel to Diamond Head crater.





  




   
  





 The Lighthouse!

 Then on to the USS Arizona Monument.



































































































































After dinner, we went to their version of a luau.  They called it the starlit hui. It was hawaiian crafts and dancing.  We were pretty tired at the end of this night.
