I’m baaaaack! So sorry for neglecting my little blog for so long. Here are some highlights of our week in gorgeous Oahu:

{At the Paradise Cove Luau. This was such a fun night full of traditional Hawaiian food, mai tais, and watching stunning Hawaiian girls dance and entertain the crowd. I would highly suggest this luau to anyone visiting Oahu. White dress from here.}

{We picked up some snorkel gear at our hotel’s gift shop and swam in our hotel’s lagoon. Even though I’m deathly afraid of sharks I figured they aren’t likely to be stalking the Marriott’s guests in the lagoon so I got over my fear. It was really fun to see different fish and marine life. Black cover-up from here.}

{Dole Whip at the Pineapple Plantation. This was by far the highlight of our stop at Dole. We got a pineapple vanilla swirl and it was heavenly.}

{We took a long walk past all the hotels one day and found a natural lagoon and this handsome sea turtle napping on the warm sand. We didn’t notice him right away…he blended into the rocks. He opened his eyes as we took pics with him but was entirely unfazed by our presence and just went back to sleep.}

{Of course Jon needed a picture with this guy too!}

{We spent 9/11 at Pearl Harbor. It was a really moving experience that I think everyone should get the chance to see.}
