HAWAII #2 with friends Jordan and Kelly

Thanks to Jordan and Kelly for sharing their time share deal with us and Wes' parents for helping with the plane flights for both our graduation gifts, we were able to go to Hawaii for the second time!!

This is me surfing :) It looks like I'm surfing on nothing, but the waves really were overhead (when you're laying on your board)! haha I tried surfing on some 3-feet waves, but they were too big and scary for me! I like what Wes calls "ankle-biters."

We swam around with this big guy for a long time. I just couldn't leave him! And he didn't care that he was being stalked. He's HUGE!!! Almost as long as Wes! They look like they're doing a synchronized swimming routine.

The blowhole is one of my all-time favorite things to visit on Maui! And I have to have a few snow cones! No place on earth can make snow cones like the ones there! First of all, have you ever seen a snow cone this big?! And nothing compares to the flavors, the texture, the macadamia nut ice cream on the bottom... mmm!

Of course we had to come back with some nice Hawaii tans (although I'm convinced that Hawaii tans fade faster than any other sun tan.)

We can never snorkel too much! haha my goggles are all foggy. I don't know if I could even see the camera!

Mmmm! The fruit there is soooo delicious!

This was our most intense hike. Luckily, there were ropes to help us scale the vertical rock walls. There was even a section where we had to swim 100 yards to continue our hike!

This was a fun beach. Can't remember what it's called though. We hung out in the area behind us because the area behind the camera is the nude beach section! Haha Kelly didn't know about it and we took here there to see her reaction! hahaha

Just hangin out on the beach! (Hawaii is also the only place my hair will curl this much all by itself... danget)

Wes was always looking for cliffs to jump off!

We were there at the end of the whale season so we took a tour and got to see some mom and baby whales up close!

We also discovered some shocking news...

Of course we had to splurge... our favorite, the one and only... Ruth's Chris! Just look at those beautiful filets! My mouth is watering right now.

Can't wait to go back!
Yup! In 2012 for an orthodontic conference!! :)
Countin down the days already!
