Back in May my family and I went on a family vacation to Oahu, Hawaii. It was our first time visiting Hawaii (except for my mom. She visited before when she was in high school) and we were all so excited to visit and explore a new state.

Day 5: June 1
We went to Aloha Staduim for the swap meet.
It was not as cool as I thought it was going to be. Just a lot of junk for tourist to buy.
If you want to buy a lot of cheap gifts for people I'd recommend going, other than that I don't think its worth your time.


Aloha Stadium. This is where the NFL Pro Bowl is played.

We got to Pearl Harbor only to find out that the tickets for the boat to the USS Arizona Memorial was sold out and we were total bummed. That was the only reason we wanted to go. But when we got to the waiting area there was an old man (I think he was a Vet) and he had extra tickets so we ended up on the last boat of the day. This is something I will never forget and I learned that I had distant family member on the USS Arizona.

Continuing my brother and I's tour of Lost locations we found another.
Jude Trail. 
Next time we are going to be more prepared and
 wear the right shows and have lots of bug spray and go exploring. 
It was beautiful there.

 My dad took a wrong turn leaving Jude Trail and we ended up at Nu'uanu Pali State Wayside.
Very beautiful place too look out and see the land and the ocean.
it also a great place to see the crazy hawaii weather. 
Rainy and foggy by the mountains and sunny and clear by at the ocean.

Day 6: June 2
We spent the whole day at Shark Cove beach, my mom and brother snorkeled all day, my dad attempted too and I spent the day laying on the beach, swimming, and hunting for shells and sea glass!

There were 2 lizards that lived on the front porch of our rental home 
and they loved it when we turned on the porch light and all the bugs came. 
Here is little Lizard friend getting ready for his dinner!

The rental home we stayed at. Our home for a week as the place on the bottom.
It was a cute little place close to Waimea Bay. Only negative about it was no AC and it got pretty hot in the house other than that it was a nice place and I hope to stay there again in the future!
