We flew to Honolulu, Hawaii on September 28th. I was a little nervous about how Andrew would do on the plane, but he ended up doing really well. He only slept for about an hour, there was just too much new stuff for him to look at that he didn't want to sleep. Anytime he got cranky we pulled out Micah's pocket PC and played a Baby Einstein video we put on it. Andrew loved it, and would sit mesmerized. After our almost 6 hour flight we arrived at the airport where our friends Bob and Patti greeted us Hawaiian style with leis.Then they drove us to Waikiki Beach where we walked around, put our feet in the water, and stopped at a Coldstone Creamery for some ice cream to cool us down. The water in Hawaii is amazingly beautiful! I loved just watching the waves.
When we were done at Waikiki we drove to where Bob's parents live in Kailua, which was only about a half an hour away. We dropped our stuff off and changed into our bathing suits and headed to the beach. Kailua Beach is on the windward side of the island of Oahu, and it is very windy. So we didn't go swimming since we weren't too warm. Instead we just put our feet in. Andrew wasn't too sure what to think about the water. I think it made him nervous.
