Hawaii Highlights

Our family had the opportunity to go to Maui and O'ahu, Hawai'i with my Dad and step family. I got to celebrate my 27th Birthday(June 9,2011) in Maui and O'ahu on the same day! Robert took me to the Cheesecake Factory in O'ahu(since we arrived there later that day). So, I woke up in Maui and was given a birthday card from my dad and our sweet step family and sung they sung happy birthday to me and made me breakfast. Egg omelet with cheese and tomatoes and steak! And then went to dinner in O'ahu with Robert while Dad and Leah watched Christopher. I got to walk home on the beach with Robert in Waikiki after dinner;) It was a fun and exhausting trip and we had a marvelous time.
Here are just a few of the highlights from our vacation.
