One week until paradise
One more week until Mr. Bear and I leave for beautiful Hawaii! Mr. Bear and I will be in Hawaii for TWO WHOLE WEEKS!!! I am so excited, I can't wait.
The first week, we will be on the island of Maui with Mr. Bear's step-family. We are celebrating Mr. Bear's step-dad's parent's 60th anniversary (does that make sense?). Basically, the entire family is traveling to Maui to celebrate. We have a few activities planned while there: luau, zipline, and relaxing on the beach. Mr. Bear will also golf one day. I am so looking forward to a vacation and where better than Hawaii!
We figured that since we were already in Hawaii, that we would spend a second week and fly over to Oahu to visit a friend there. He had offered for us to come and stay at his home at our wedding, so we figured we would take him up on the offer. It didn't cost much more for an inter-island flight and since we will be staying with him, we don't have to worry about a hotel. So not a whole lot of extra money being spent. Plus, we can buy groceries and cook instead of eating out all the time. It is not often that we have the opportunity to go to Hawaii for TWO WEEKS.
