Monday-We took the rental car all over the island and spent the day sightseeing! It was really fun...all except for the hike to the top of Diamond Head! For those of you who doesn't know...I am NOT a hiker! I really don't care about getting to the very top and seeing a view. I know that is crazy but I guess I am just lazy!
Diamond Head-was disappointing to me. The big "hole" part was neat but all the vegetation was dead. So we hike to the very top about a mile up with two 100 stairs staircases and look out over all this dead grass. I am sure if it was green grass the view would have been much better!
Yes, we made it to the top and have the
picture to prove it!

Pearl Harbor-from Diamond Head we went to visit Pearl Harbor. We got there and walked around the outside monuments. We did not realize until later in our trip that we had missed the big thing to do at Pearl Harbor...the museum that you have to take a ferry to get to. We were bummed that we missed the best part. The monuments and torpedoes were cool though!
The sand in Hawaii is like crushed rock. Not
so nice on bare feet!
This is the prettiest water I have ever seen!
Tuesday night we went to Ruth's Chris for dinner for our anniversary! It was so yummy. When Jason called to make the reservation they asked him if he was celebrating anything special and he said yes, my anniversary. When we got there, there were rose petals on the table. It was so sweet. They also gave us chocolate covered strawberries!
Wednesday: We hung out at the pools at the resort today. There were so many pools! One of them had water slides. It was the kiddie pool but we used them too! They were so fun. The kiddie pool also had waterfalls and a tunnel into another pool. It was really fun! Wednesday night we went to Germaine's Luau! It was great! Those dancers can really hula! The food was really yummy too! Hawaiian food is good!
