Hana Hou!

Its been a week since I have been back from my vacation to Hawaii and I still think I have not adjusted to the change. While I was there, I got a few texts that I was missing all the snow in Houston and of course I had to text back with a picture of me laying out on the beach :) Cruel, I know.


I had a fabulous time on the Big Island and Oahu. There is so much I wasn't able to do and hope to visit Oahu and another island in a few more years. The Big Island was phenomenal with star gazing on Mauna Kea and visiting the volcanoes and walking through a lava tube. I haven't been able to go through all of my images yet, but most of them have family/friends in them so I probably won't be posting those. But here are some general photos I took.

This whole trip I was so busy behind the camera that I almost forgot to get a picture of hubs and I. This was taken before the sunset picture above. I just realized I look like I'm pregnant in this picture (which by the way I am totally not). I guess its just the way the dress is cut and the angle of the picture. Oh well.

This was the first trip my dad has taken with hubs and I. He had such a great time (because he didn't have to do anything, we just told him what time to wake up haha) he wants us to go to Europe next year with him and his siblings. I wouldn't mind going to Europe again, but I REALLY wanted to go to Asia.

Anyone have any interesting vacation plans in the near future? Do you vacation with your parents? If so, how does that work out for you?

Rebecca and Dustjacket - Thanks ladies!

Saltwater - I use a Canon 5D and all the photos were shot with my new lense 24-70.

So far we are just re-planning the honeymoon, and hopefully in 2011 we will make a few trips. Paris, London, cruise somewhere.
