Arrival in Hawai'i

Aloha! Finally! At last, for two weeks we've been waiting for this moment and it's finally here. We're on Maui, and I want to tell you about our first day:

The airport in San Francisco was hectic and I am still amazed we made it out in one piece, but the plane ride was actually kinda nice. Not too long and I didn't get sick at all. We touched down on Maui 11:20 local time. As soon as you get off in Maui, you can feel a difference. If you breathe in real deep, you can smell a warm, faint smell of tropical breezes.

We ate then went to our condo - it was left in good condition, which was a relief. I started unpacking and got bored - it was beach time! I walked down there and was completely blissful. I don't know how else to describe it. I just ran in and out of the waves like a little kid, completely and utterly having the best time of my life.

We went to the store a little later. It's amazing how much you take for granted - we were surprised by the sheer neccesaries we had to buy! Our cart was filled to the brim and we have a LOT more things to get, later. Tonight, we grilled out by the pool and watched the beautiful sun set behind ocean, mountain, and sea. Just wonderful. I was able to swim a little in the pool.

Until tomorrow....


p.s. Sorry about missing the last couple days. Apparently the thought of complimentry Internet still bothers some hotels. Nothing happened to report.

EDIT: How could I say there was nothing to report!? I totally forgot to mention I saw Shannon (my horse) Sunday! She was... exhausted. I guess. Kinda out of it, but I don't blame her. I was kinda hoping for the OMG YOU ARE HERE GIVE ME KISSES reponse she usually gives me, but I could tell that after I got there she felt she could relax. It was almost like "Ah, you're here. I can relax now." I think she will be here mid-August but the shipping companies are unsure themselves at this point.


  1. I am soooo glad you got to see Shannon.

    I have to admit reading about you all being there and actually settling in made me cry. I'm missing you terribly already.


  2. Aw:( Please don't be too sad. We miss you too.

  3. I am so happy you made it in one piece, lol. I was waiting to hear how Shannon was doing. MID AUGUST??? Are they shipping with a layover in Miami? LOL I am sure she will be fine. Let me know how she does so I can report to Bo. Tell your Mom, Theresa, you know the lady you are with....the one you haven't mentioned in TWO WEEKS, I said hi and miss her and will hope to see you all soon.

  4. Whoa, I've got some catching up to do. Glad you guys got there safely, and I'm hoping Shannon is with you by now.
