Hawaii - finally!

We have been living in Hawaii for almost a month now. Just a few more things to do before I finally feel "settled in."
Here we are checking in at the airport in Ohio.

Walking to our gate.

Waving goodbye to the mainland.

Hanging out on the airplane.
We forced the children to sleep just a little bit. I sleep for about an hour, but Rand didn't sleep at all.

We just spotted land
Arriving in the Honolulu airport. Yes, that is an open air walkway.

The lady from the University who picked us up greeted us with leis.

Our new home. Pink! We love it. So appropriate since we have 3 girls.

While exploring the house we discovered that we already had a pet.

The girls enjoying their first Hawaiian Shave Ice.

The Polynesian Cultural Center. It is 2 blocks from our house, so of course we got season passes right away.

Now it's time to get back to regular life. It is kind of weird to do that in a place where it seems like we should be on vacation. We are excited to see what adventures we will have in such an interesting place.
