Mahalo Hawaii!

Well, our time in Hawaii (on Oahu island, to be specific) has come to an end.  21 glorious days that will not be forgotten.

As you read this, we're on a plane traveling back to our home state.  

We'll miss beautiful Hawaii and our daily walks to Waikiki beach to play in the ocean, but we'll hold our memories dear.  Snuggle Bug and Boo may not remember this trip, but we have lots and lots of pictures to share with them later!

I must admit, I'm looking forward to being home, to sleeping in my own bed, to seeing our two kitties, and to buying groceries at reasonable prices again. 

Mahalo Hawaii for the wonderful time!

UPDATE:

We made it back home safe and sound.  The kids traveled surprisingly well and for that we were thankful!

When we stepped off the plane back home, Snuggle Bug said, ALOHA to many passersby!  He also asked us when we were going to see the ocean again.  I had to explain that it'd be quite a while.  He got spoiled with walking down to Waikiki beach every morning! 

Both kids were happy to see their two kitties and neither of them protested when we gave them a quick bath and put them to bed shortly after dinner.  I think they were happy to be in their own beds again!

I always miss my shower too.

Have a safe trip home, and I pray the kids travel well.
