It’s the weekend!  I should be getting ready to shoot a wedding tomorrow, instead I decided to do a quick weekend blog post!

My family went to Hawaii last month!  I think this trip was SO special because it was the first time our entire family including my grandma went on vacation together since middle school or high school!  On top of it, minus my sister it was the first time we’ve all been to Hawaii!  Come to think about it, it’s so weird that I’ve traveled the world, yet going to Hawaii took this long.  It’s been a month and I’m still thinking about how much fun we had.  I can’t wait for the next time I get to go!  My family even started saving money in our lil pineapple piggy bank we got from the Dole Plantation.

We only went for 3 nights, but I really packed in the activities.  I think we did almost everything most tourists do in a week in those 3 days!  And the best part…I saw a sea turtle…swimming!  It was a dream come true for me!

Also it was probably the first time I went on vacation without my DSLR!!!  *gasp*  All these images were taken using a point and shoot (Canon S90) the underwater photos were taken using the underwater housing for the S90.  I absolutely LOVE this lil camera!

A vacation just isn’t a vacation without eating a lot of great food!

It was my first time snorkeling and what’s funny is I found out I get seasick snorkeling!  I love swimming and I normally can swim for hours, but the water was pretty rough so that took a toll on me!  My sister took a bunch of the fish photos!  Some of these fish were HUUUUUUGE!

Karly LOOOOOVED swimming so much!  She had a blast just a few days shy of her 1st birthday!

We even saw a rainbow when we got to the top of the Diamond Head hike!  Too bad it wasn’t a double rainbow 😛

I was SO excited we got to see sea turtles, but one thing I didn’t realize was how big they were!  Also the water was so murky you couldn’t see if there was a turtle nearby and although it’s illegal for you to touch them, two of them swam into me!
