Aloha


We are back and still trying to catch up on sleep. We had a wonderful 10 days on Oahu and came back relaxed and ready to tackle the coming school year. This first picture is our first night on the Island. We headed to the beach to drink a few Mai Tai's and watch the sunset with Sharon and Ross.






























The second day we headed to a Luau to celebrate my 35th birthday. We had front row seats (it is all about who you know, and we thank Sharon and Ross for their connections) and were treated to the best Luau on the Island. Fia Fia, was incredible!!! The fire dancers were dazzling and our night was topped off with a tattoo and the singing of Happy Birthday to Sharon in Samoan.

Brian, Sharon and Tutu headed out the next day to the other side of the Island to Tropical Farms a.k.a. Macadamia Nut farm where we learned more about the Hawaiian culture. At this location we saw where several movie have been filmed. The pier is from Fantasy Island where he would stand and shout "de plane" and the building in the other picture has been used as the restaurant in 50 First Dates as well as scenes from E.R., Jurassic Park, Lost and several others. Next we headed over to the shrimp trucks and some of the best Kahuku Shrimp on the planet!!!! I have waited 2 years for this shrimp and I was not disappointed. To top it off we then drove to the Dole Plantation and had a Pineapple Whippee!!!! Yippee!!!! Once again, we were not disappointed.
