We have arrived in paradise!

However, the first three days have been no vacation.
  • Flew in - layover in Seattle
  • Collected all our bags (4 large suitcases, 2 carry on suitcases, 2 backpacks, and 2 pillows)
  • Took shuttle to hotel
  • Couldn't sleep - too excited
  • Shuttle back to airport to get rental car (upgraded to a Jeep Wrangler!)
  • Back to hotel to pick up bags
  • Drove to North Shore to move into our new place
  • Drove back to Honolulu the next morning to drop off rental car
  • Took taxi to the pier to get our car (they decided to just be closed on Thursdays, which is why we had to rent a car and go back)
  • Ross, K-Mart, Target, Costco twice and Wal-Mart three times.
  • 2 trips to the Kahuku dump
  • Endless hours of cleaning our new place, which was filthy when we arrived.
  • Tanya starting school the morning after we flew in, and already busy with homework.
But you know what? It was worth it.
Yesterday we celebrated being done moving in by eating our first meal in our new home.
The disgusting thing is that we've been here 3 days and haven't even touched the ocean yet. We plan to fix that today. We are beach hopping from now until sunset.

Hooray! Gotta love your dinner view. Glad you made it okay. Brenden has been talking about going to the warm ocean with Uncle Rod and Aunt Tanya all week.
