It's easy to be Thankful in Hawaii




This year for THANKSGIVING my grandparents took the whole family to HAWAII for the week, here are some of the pictures from the trip.


We have arrived!!



This is the view from our hotel room and the most amazing resort in Ka'anapali, we were literally right next to the ocean.


Our first day at the beach
Even though these waves look the small, apparently they were strong enough to keep Kenny from standing up
This is the top of the volcano called Haleakala, the crater was huge! It was 10,000 feet high so it was almost as cold as Logan is up there.

The sunset was beautiful on Haleakala because it set into the clouds, pretty huh?




These last three pictures are this look out rock that we had to hike down to. When Kenny and I were posing for that picture right after it was taken a huge wave crashed up and soaked us!



The jungles of Maui


Our Thanksgiving Feast = Luau!

These three tables are my family before the dinner started. They made hawaiian style turkey, stuffing, and potatoes but they also roasted a pig in the ground and had all the fun hawaiian food like poi (which tastes like wallpaper paste).
The dancers told the history of the Hawaiian islands but mostly they just shake their hips

Awww... this is the sunset right before the luau started
