My Man turned 30 this year…on the blessed day of FEBRUARY 14.
We planned a nice quick trip to the Big Island without kids..WAHOO!! Thank goodness to Cousin Jacob & Janice who watched the kids. We had a blast. It was so nice to go through the airport without LOTS of luggage & kids. We arrived & went straight up to Waimea to visit some good friends, Molly & Trevor Carter. (Sad no pictures) We ate at a fabulous THAI restaurant & chatted with them into the wee hours of the morning. The next day we drove down to Kona to go to the Temple:
I love visiting where we got married…LOVE IT. It’s amazing how the smells, the things we see, how everything brings those feelings back of that day. What a wonderful experience.
Afterwards, we went around Kona town & shopped for Jase’s birthday…he REALLY needed new shoes & clothes. That was fun, ate & then stopped by Aunty Danelle’s house.
We love them, love chatting with them & visiting. We always feel welcome & at home there.
And seeing Grandma Calabio is always wonderful. She really wanted to see the Great Grandkids, so we promised to bring them next year.
A quick 28 hours of a trip, I wish we could go longer on an adventure just the two of us…maybe in a few years.
