I had grand intentions of adding a lot more photos, but this will have to do. There are just too many pictures and memories to include them all. Boy, we love Hawaii.
Gordon's first Christmas was fantastic. We woke up early and hiked an incredible hike to the top of Koko Head, which was a great way to start the day.
Being away from home, we had a very simple Christmas. The trip was a gift in itself. But, Gordon couldn't have a christmas without any presents. Wish I had known that all I had to do was put a bow on a ball of wrapping paper and he would be a happy boy.
This was on Waikiki Beach. Gordon was so easy to take along and would just nap on the beach. It was so pleasant.
The morning we left was so sad for me. I can't express how wonderful it was to be with my mother. Outside their house they have a plumeria tree which drops incredible fragrant flowers every day. I loved to go out and collect them and couldn't get over the fact that there are trees in the world that shed flowers. The morning we left, I left one for each of us in our bedroom for my mother to find. Just a little kiss from each of us.
We are headed back this summer and honestly cannot wait.
