Thanksgiving in Hawaii

Beautiful Hawaii! We had a fabulous week of relaxing in 80+ degree weather as well as a few activities... International Market Place, attended church, outrigger canoe ride, surfing, Hawaiian Adventures water park, Dole Pineapple plantation and pineapple maze, botanical gardens, BYU-Hawaii, Polynesian Cultural Center, Hawaii Temple, breakfast sail on a catamaran, snorkeling at Hanauma Bay, hiking to Diamond Head, Sea Life Park, Pearl Harbor, submarine, battleship, aviation museum, Bishop Museum and 4 hours of shopping at the BEST mall ever (Ala Moana Mall) because our plane departure was delayed until midnight...
They made it to the top! We left at 7 am and got to the top at 7:30 and back down by 7:45.

Hailey saved her money so she could swim with the dolphins at Sea Life Park. She even got a belly ride along with her kiss!

Hawaii Temple (they're closing it for 18 months for renovation)
Enjoying shaved ice at Polynesian Cultural Center while watching the canoe show.
Diamond Head in the distance (we hiked to the very highest point you can see in the pic)
Waikiki Beach with Diamond Head in the background. Our hotel was right across the street from the beach and we usually made it out to the beach by at least 8 am each day (pretty easy since Hawaii is 3 hours earlier than Utah so we were awake).

Looks like a lot of fun! I want to go back, but maybe we'll wait since Milk is $9! Crazy!

I'm so glad you didn't have to come home to snow! I love the picture of Hailey with the dolphin. That was always a dream of mine. I'm glad she was able to do it!
