This year, we got to take Kristin’s family to Oahu, HI! It was so fun! We got to snorkel with sea turtles, octopus, and lots of other neat fish. We were there during whale season and got to see some spectacular breeches. We went to a luau, and enjoyed the beautiful beaches. The pipeline was perfect for some competitions, so we went and watched some of the surfing. Erik and Steve tried to surf, too. Gosh, I miss it, already! I was so glad that we got to share that time with my parents and with Erik and Portia. Who knows how many opportunities we will have to do something like that together.
