Kristen and I went to Pearl Harbor with her grandparents. She had been there before, but she was always so accommodating and really showed me the ropes. We had such a great time.
When the Iosepha was first launched, President Henry B. Iring and Elder M. Russell Ballard engraved their names in the hull of the canoe. We were really lucky to have been taken on the BYU Hawaii voyager canoe. It is only launched once a year and they gave us a tour and shared experiences on their last day before it was taken out of the water.
With the HILARIOUS Samoan guy. He was seriously my favorite part of the whole Polynesian Cultural Center.
Kristen just absolutely loves this place so we took an adventure to Halieva (that is so spelled wrong). We did so much in one afternoon while her dad and grandpa went golfing at Turtle Grove.
We found this HUGE sea turtle. HUGE. I felt like Steve Irwin. I'm pretty sure I took more pictures of this turtle then on the whole trip.
Then we went to Waimea Falls. It's a bird refuge, which is why some of the following animals were spotted.
I am so blessed to have been able to go to Hawaii. The Clark's were just so generous and accepting. Some of my most fun moments include sitting around the table playing Pinochle late at night. I am so grateful for the memories we created. Thank you to the Clark's and my parents for making this trip possible. Love you all!
