When you get the chance to run away as a couple...you HAVE TO TAKE IT!
And then we arrived in Paradise. The smell......it is the best welcoming gift ever! We Got off the plane and into the open walkway and it was beautiful and like 75 degrees. HEAVEN!
One of the little requests from our amazing kids was to take pictures of places that we all used to go, so they can remember them. So much of this and the next posts will be lovely places we used to go, surf, play, eat, and enjoy. Forgive the blurriness of my iphone as we drove passed many of these sites.

We enjoyed a surf session at Castles Beach, where I attempted to learn. But because of my wussiness and no muscle I was unable to stand up. After a good 45 minutes of trying...I went in and took pictures of Jase. He enjoyed his surf release!
See our two surfboards, we borrowed from Mark Lee, yes I did attempt to surf!
Some other places we frequented. Tamura's grocery store, where you can find all your local goodies!
Haleiwa sign...in a rush.
On our way back form Haleiwa we stopped at Pipeline to watch the waves and the surfers, but we got a nice kite surfing show. This guy was GOOD!
Its Really nice to be US again. When is it ever just us. I realize that my role in life is to not only be a mother, sister, daughter, but MORE IMPORTANTLY be a WIFE! I know that I don't take enough time to nurture that relationship like I should, my mind gets swept away in my motherly duties. But THIS MOMENT RIGHT HERE, the moment you take to celebrate US is the moment that nutures that love & friendship.
AHH! Let's just FREEZE THIS MOMENT!
The day ended with Jase going to bed early and Audrey, Kristin & I staying up late talking story till the wee hours! ITs funny how when you leave a part of your life, you can return & pick it up right where it left off. A perfect way to end our wonderful day in Paradise!
