We enjoyed a lovely ten days in Hawaii with the kids and my parents. It was so nice to warm up and see some sun. We were at the beach everyday and did lots of snorkeling and swimming and sand castle building.
This was my parent's first trip to Hawaii, so we did some of the sights (Dole pineapple plantation, the USS Arizona) but balanced it with plenty of relaxation.
Both houses had beautiful lanais from which we could watch the birds... one of my mom's favorite things.
I put some of my better photos on flickr
Now we are back in Portland and apparently spring has arrived during our absence. I will take some pictures tomorrow of all the flowering beauty. The nice weather is not supposed to last... rain is in the forecast for next week.... ALL week.
