Back to reality...

We are home from Hawaii and back to reality. It was such an amazing trip! The pictures can't capture the beauty of this island. If you have never been you have to put it on your must-see list! We have been to other tropical locations, but nothing compares to the beauty found here. We spent an entire week on the Big Island of Hawaii. Most people chose to go to one of the other islands (Oahu is very popular) but I would recommend the Big Island! It is less crowded and offers everything the other islands have and so much more! We rented a car (a must) and drove around the entire island over the course of several days. The highlight of our trip was the two nights we spent in the little town of Volcano. We stayed at a Bed and Breakfast called Kilauea Lodge. It was amazing! I was a bit worried before we left about staying in a B&B, and boy was I proven wrong! We liked the B&B more than the 5 star hotels we stayed in the rest of the week. Do not go to the Big Island without stopping for a night or two in Volcano! This is where the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is located, so it's worth the stop. There are so many things I could say about our trip, but it's even better to see the trip through pictures, and boy do we have a TON!! I posted a few on my facebook account, but there are over 500 on my snapfish account. Let me know if you want to see them and I will send you an e-mail with the link to all the pictures. Since there are so many, you will want to have a few extra minutes to look at them all. There are so many pictures that you will feel like you went on our trip with us! :-) You can use the pics to take a "vacation" from your everyday life. Enjoy!! Here are just a few pictures to give you a sampling....
