Our Hawaii Trip

Our trip to Hawaii was amazing. We had the hardest time leaving, most vacations were ready to come home after awhile but not here. We were gone for a week and could've stayed another week no problem. It was as beautiful as I had pictured Hawaii to be the views were undescribable. The only part about the trip that was not so fun was our delay in LA for 11 hours. They had something go wrong with the plane and had a mechanic working on it so they just kept delaying it an hour or two at a time. If we would had known that we were goig to be there that long we would had taken the kids and done something in LA. But once we got to Hawaii it was well worth the wait. I couldn't believe how genuine and nice the people were there. Utah people needs to take a few lessons from the Hawaiian people. Aaron and I decided that we would love to retire there.

Stockton got his first Tatoo! Stockton said "Mom, I want one all the way down my arm. I thought oh no I just had a vision of about 10 years in the future :)

Brightyn and Mommy at the beach in Hawaii. It was one of our favorite places in Hawaii. The waves were huge and the kids had a blast.
Stockton loved everything about the beach except for the taste of the salt water.

There was a boat that took us from one end of the resort to the other. There was also a tram but the kids always wanted to ride on the boat.

The kids swimming at the pool! They had such a blast they never even wanted to leave the resort, they could have stayed at the pool the entire time. The water was freezing cold I dont know how they could've enjoyed it there was no getting used to it either thats how cold it was. Brrrrrr

Stockton and Aaron at the pool

Aaron and I at the entrance to our room. I loved how open the hotel was. The entire hotel was all open with no walls. This entrance shown in the picture had several trees that went past the height of the hotel. It was such a beautiful place.

There was so much to do at the resort. This was a place that you were able to scuba dive, canoe, ride on water with bikes. The kids were in their heaven.

The waterfall was amazing. We went scuba diving and were able to swim with all the tropical fish and best of all the sea turtles. Although I thought that the turtles were great Aaron didn't have the same feelings he was scared to death of them.

The resort that we stayed at was called Waikola in Kona it was amazing. They had over $7 million in art work in the main walkways. Aaron and I were a nervous wreck everytime our kids got close to anything.

This was our view at breakfast each morning. State Farm did an amazing with every detail of our trip.

Brightyn loved what she called her flower necklace. She never wanted to take it off.

This was the view right outside of our room. This was Aaron's favorite place to be. We were right on the gold course and it was beautiful. Everynight we would sleep with our oustide door open it was very windy the entire time we were there and Aaron was in heaven sleeping with all of the cool air blowing on him.

Addie had been so sick up to the day that we flew out. She finally started feeling better about 2 days into the trip. Sunny Hawaii took the cold right away!
Stockton loved just hanging out and talking to Grandma & Grandpa on the phone!

This picture was taken right when we landed. It was about 4 a.m. so we were all a little out of it!
