So my computer is throwing a fit :( so i've been forced to work off the iPod. There might not be any pictures for a bit unfortunately! Sorry! We're doing our best to get it working again! So yesterday Kari and I had the opportunity to go spend the night at our wards girls camp. They needed another priesthood holder and I was scared to stay home alone. I was so jealous of these girls! They got to stay in a cabin right by the ocean! My girls camps were definitely not that cool! And these girls were awesome! Their theme was Harry Potter; strength and courage. They put on a skit that was just awesome! We sang songs and had scones with them. It was such a fun experience! Oh and their morning activity was learning how to surf! What a neat thing! I think I would have had a lot better attitudes about my girls camps if they were anything like these! It was really cool to be a part of it for a night.

It was our one month anniversary yesterday :) So we spent the day together, laying out on the beach, reading, and he even made me yummy dinner. He bought me the cutest lei! He said that I needed to know the feeling of a real flower lei at least once in my life. It was pretty cool! It made me feel very special :)

Today was spent...sleeping in, french toast for breakfast, and going to the beach! It was so fun! The weather was perfect, water was crystal clear and warm, slightly breezy, and lots of cool crabs. Kari studied for the CPA exam and I read my book. We both lost track of time and came home royally sunburned. As the day progressed, eating dinner, making cookies and all, we both became more and more red. We're not sure when it's going to stop, but we hope soon! Kari has made me commit to wearing lots and lots of sunscreen from now on, and no more getting distracted for 4 hours by books on the beach, as nice as that may sound.

Last night, we went out to the end of the point, which we haven't done before. We watched the waves crash against the rock and saw cool little tide pools. Then we looked behind us! This was taken with my phone, so it doesn't do it justice at all. The sunset was gorgeous! It went all across the skyline. This is definitely something we will watch again and again. Other than that, we had a pretty relaxing day. We headed down to campus so Kari could do some things for his class on Wednesday. We were told to go to Hukilau Cafe. So we wandered around until we found it. It was very hot inside, and the food was less than pleasant. We were instantly sick, and we still had a hot walk home. Not so fun! But at least we can say we went there, right?! Ha...I'm not too sure it was worth it! We've decided we're not having the best luck eating out here, so home cooked meals are the way to go for us! The rest of the day was spent relaxing at home; Kari studied for his CPA test while I watched movies and took a nice long nap :-)

Turtle Beach! How cool this experience was! We saw at least 30 sea turtles. They were riding the waves all along the beach. We went out snorkling and saw a lot of fish, and a turtle almost kissed me! It poked its head up just as I went under the water. It was so neat!
We went on a walk up Waimea Valley to the falls. The walk was beautiful! And there were wild chickens! They're everywhere here! It's crazy. We swam in the fresh rain water at the bottom of the falls. It was so gorgeous to look around and see beautiful mother nature at her finest. Definitely one of my favorite things we've done here so far.
