Pineapples, hiking and worship

I have been here in Hawaii for four days. Everyone is resting right now (Sunday afternoon nap) so I thought I would take a few minutes to update my blog as to what I have been doing the last four days.

My first full day here we started out early dropping Allan off at school and then Felicia drove me around the entire island (I think - I really can't remember at the moment if we did in fact go around the whole island or not and she is asleep so I can't ask her.) I loved all the varieties of trees and foliage I saw. It is absolutely beautiful here!
Will and Felicia and the boys climbed this moutain - it is 1000 feet up by way of stairs!! They did this 6 weeks after Shawn was born. You can just barely make out the trail in this picture. Oh my goodness...NO WAY!

Sweet little Shawn just rides along in the pack on Will or Felicia's chest when they do all their weekend hikes.
So many pretty pictures to take...
This reminds me of Brazil - all the houses stacked on top of one another. It is really funny because there are lots of similarities between Brazil and Hawaii.Nathan and I
The 2nd day we went to the Dole Pineapple Plantation. Felicia and I shared this pineapple split..
Have you ever seen one of these trees? A Gum tree - they are so colorful and beautiful. I have never seen a Gum tree before.
Yesterday we hiked to the summit of Diamond Head crater. It was a long steep climb. The boys were real troopers!

The view from the top was amazing! Me and Felicia were exhausted by the time we reached the summit - me from being out of shape and her from carrying Shawn on her chest in a pack! lolOne set of steps (out of 3) we had to climb. We are coming back down in this picture...Allan is in front of Will who is carrying Shawn in the pack.Waikiki in the background....from the very top of the crater.
