We spent our first night and day in Hawaii on the island of Oahu. After a nice big breakfast, we took a lovely walk along Waikiki Beach while Julia slept in the stroller. We enjoyed the scenes, hung out with some tropical birds, watched the surfers and even got to witness a crew shooting a scene for a movie “currently entitled Battleship”. It was all very fun and exciting :)!
By-the-way, I am totally hooked on this new software I am trying out, called Shape Collage! I used it to make the photo collage above. With the free version, you can instantly make a photo collage in any shape to add to your blog posts, Facebook, etc!! It is super easy and fun to use – I’m hooked :)! The creator of the software is letting me try the upgraded version too in exchange for a review on my scrapbookideas.com site. This gives me some extra features and control over the collages – I think you will be seeing a lot more photo collages from me from now on :)!

Did you even know we were going to Hawaii? We didn’t know we were going either until a week before the trip! Chris had a one day business meeting in Kauai and we decided to turn it into a week-long family vacation :). This is something we have always wanted to do, so it was a wonderful surprise to be able to go for 1/2 the cost – and just in time for our seventh anniversary too :)!
We spent most of our time on the island of Kauai, but we also visited Oahu, where Chris lived for a couple of years in college. Here’s a fun family pic taken at Waikiki Beach with some tropical birds – I can’t believe I let them put that huge bird on my head!
Julia wasn’t in the family photo above, because she was asleep in the stroller at the time. But the bird guys did convince me to open the stroller cover up so they could put a bird on her too. I can only imagine what she was thinking when she woke up to see this little guy laying in the stroller with her ha ha!!
I took over 1000 photos during our trip, so I will be sharing more when I get a chance (free time for blogging is hard to come by these days)! For now, I will leave you with a nice sunset picture of the pool outside the condo we stayed at in Kauai :).
