Hawaii, but not exactly honeymoon

Hawaii was a blast! Jesse and I really enjoyed hanging out on the beaches and snorkeling and all that fun stuff, but I think next time we go, we'd like to go by ourselves. We went with my family to celebrate my grandpa's birthday. He turns 65 in October and he wanted to celebrate his birthday in Hawaii, so we all went down to celebrate with them. I got a brithday party out of it, too, so that's pretty cool. I turned 21 while we were there. The bummer part about it was that was the worst day of the sunburn. I guess that's what I get for forgetting my sunscreen. Oh well. Other than the sunburn, Hawaii was great and I can't wait to go back.

Well, everyone out there, we're online. We finally were able to take the plunge and get Comcast cable internet. Ahhh...we haven't had it since we got married and consequently haven't been able to update on here much. So, finally, we can talk about what's going on.

We got back from Hawaii on Sept. 21. We were there for a week on the Big Island in Kailua-Kona. Man, was it AWEsome. I don't think I would want to live there, to be honest with's just too hot for me. And humid. But it's gorgeous.

We went snorkeling several times, which was great--I truly couldn't believe all the fish. It was like putting your face in the water and bam, it's Finding Nemo. What a trip. We saw fish just like Dory (tang), and Marlin and Nemo (clownfish), and there was even (gasp!) a drop-off out at Captain Cook. We also got to kayak with dolphins.

On the downside, Amy and I got sunburned and spent two days in our condo not touching (which is a real bummer when you're newlyweds, and probably even when you aren't, I suspect). The good part was that we got to watch the History channel and saw this awesome show called Dogfights, which despite the name was about air warfare (as you may be aware).

We loved it and we can't wait to go back. Next time we'll use more sunscreen.

We'll have picures for you eventually...keep watching!
