Wild Times with the Family!

Phil and Danette came to visit and we had a wonderfully wild time exploring Oahu together!
Life is a Beach!

Turkey Day
They fit right into our Turkey Day celebration at the dock.

The gang loved having them around - especially Phil's homemade Bloody Mary's.
Top of Diamond Head

Next day - hiking up the Diamond Head crater.

A great way to work off those extra holiday calories!

Of course, that means a trip to the Kona Brewing Company and some R&R time at Bellows Beach.

The Sanitarium
We splurged and spent 2 nights in Waikiki at the Hawaii Prince.

Some shopping, some eating, some visiting, and lots of bar hopping.

Wolfgang's Steakhouse is still our favorite upscale eatery, but we loved Snappers for their Mai Tai Happy Hour. 
Enjoying Queen Emma's Palace

Part of our tour was checking out the Shrimp trucks.

Our favorite - Macky's Shrimp Truck in Haleiwa - right next to the 7-11.

Their garlic shrimp was amazing.  Get extra sauce for the rice!
Arizona Memorial and Might Mo
Of course, we had to tour Pearl Harbor. Seeing all of the photos and reading all of the stories about our hero's. So moving...

More beach time
We loved having Phil and Danette visit.  The time went way too fast, but we got to spend lots of time together - just talking and laughing and making new memories.

Miss them already, but will see them in Texas in 2 weeks.
