Christmas in Hawaii: Aloha







Well we made it! After a long night and early morning we landed in Honolulu, Hawaii at 12:05 (4:05 pm at home). Both Mason and Madi were really great travelers. Carey, always on schedule, had everything planned so well that we were never in a rush or worried about our time. We had time to take a few pictures as soon as we arrived in Hauula, Hawaii, at the house we rented. Yes, the beach is just across the front yard and there are HUGE waves in the distance. Just the drive from the airport, which took about 40 minutes was gorgeous. The kids were definitely impressed with the green mountains and blue ocean. We are all exhausted and headed to bed, but I did add a couple of photos for anyone interested. We hope you have all had a very Merry Christmas, we certainly have! God's creation is just amazing to behold.
