Hawaii Part 1

Aloha! We have actually been home for over a week now, but we have had so much going on that I haven't taken the time to post about our amazing trip! Dave, McKenna and I went to Hawaii with some of our friends, Chris and Rebecca Nagel. We spent ten days on the beautiful island of Oahu. I was planning on just one Hawaii post, but we have an insane number of pictures, so I am going to do at least two posts on this one.
McKenna was a champ on the trip, she not only had to deal with a 3 hour time change, and her schedule completely being thrown off, but she ended up getting an ear infection on the plane ride over. She was such a good sport, in spite of everything.

Here we are at the Polynesian Cultural Center

While we were here Oahu had one of the largest swells they have had in about 40 years. The ways on the north shore got up to 50 feet! Most of the beaches were closed down on that part of the island. The good thing about this was there were a few surf competitions while we were there. Here we are at the Billabong Pipeline Masters. The prize for the winner of this competition was a million dollars!

The huge waves! I am sad that you can't really see how big they are in the pictures!
