the last time I was in Hawaii...

- I was 15 years old.

- We spent a week in Oahu.

- Our taxi was a limo. That's the only time I've ridden in a limo :)

- My older brother, Trevor, wanted to be sure he went home with a tan so he didn't wear any sunscreen our first day there. My parents decided not to fight him on it since he was 18.... he'd learn his lesson real fast :) Trevor burned so bad that his skin was blue. I'm thinking the rest of the week wasn't very pleasant for him!

- I learned to surf along with my brothers and my dad.

- I was out surfing for too long and didn't reapply my sunscreen soon enough so the back of my legs fried. My skin was purple (we were a colorful family that week). My little brother, Derrick, couldn't resist telling me I looked like I "had a stick up my butt" anytime we walked somewhere. My skin was so fried that I could barely bend my knees! Random strangers would stop me and ask me if I was aware that my legs were burned pretty badly. As if the pain didn't clue me in on that fact....

- We enjoyed the best shrimp I've ever had!

- We did not do one hike that whole week. No hiking to waterfalls, and no hiking up a volcano!

- I met a boy, crushed on him, and got a kiss at the end of the trip :)


This time when I'm in Hawaii....

-We'll be in Maui.

- I plan on swimming in sunscreen. No sunburns this time, please!

- I probably won't be surfing. Eric definitely doesn't want to learn to surf.

- We're planning on hiking to some waterfalls and doing a bike ride down a volcano. Gotta make up for missing out on the last trip!

- I hope to drink my weight in Pina Coladas. The virgin kind, of course :)

- I will take TONS of pictures of the scenery... I really didn't take any on my last trip.

- We probably won't eat enough food, we have to pay the tabs this time. Being an adult is such a bummer sometimes, ha ha ha!

- I plan on kissing a boy, a lot. His name is Eric in case you were wondering....

Haha, that dang pain, always reminding you how sunburnt you were! Good call on the swimming in sunscreen part...and the kissing LOTS part :) Every time I kiss Matt right after he gets off work he tastes like sunscreen because it sweats off onto his lips I think? Ha. Yay on the hiking/picture taking part!

I have never been to Hawaii, but I SO want to go! Can I hide in your luggage? I'll chip in on the luggage fees! Say no to skin cancer and definitely where lots of the right kind of sunblock!
