So we just got back from our wonderful trip to Hawaii. The men's volleyball team played in a tournament at the University of Hawaii, so I came along with them. We had so much fun! The tournament consisted of 3 schools-BYU, U of H, and USC-and each school had 2 teams. Both of our teams won 2 and lost once, so it was good. It was so fun to get to see Reed play again-and he did so well! But seriously, no one REALLY cared that much about volleyball...

I could type forever, but I know that can get boring, so here's our trip in pictures.

We went to Hanauma Bay to go snorkeling
We saw hundreds fish of every shade of every color, an eel, and even a big sea turtle! He was pretty cool!
We went to The Sandy Beach where we saw some really big waves.

Those crazy boys thought twice about going in...
...but in the end, they just couldn't resist!

Reed and I later went exploring over on the rocks-it was beautiful!We later learned that the waves at The Sandy Beach weren't that big or impressive when we pulled up to North Shore-the waves there are incredible!
Reed and Kevin really enjoyed playing "Crack the Egg" and getting hammered by the waves breaking on the shore-it was pretty funny to watch!

On our way back, we stopped by to see the Laie, Hawaii LDS Temple-it was beautiful! The grounds around the temple were amazing.

We had such a great trip. We are so thankful for the opportunity we had to go and that it was a fun and safe trip. Aloha!

Looks like you guys had a lot of fun!!! I bet it was a blast. Chad wishes he'd seen the North Shore when we went there on our Honeymoon, but we didn't get to. He will be so jealous to hear you guys did!! :) Hope you guys are doing well! How much longer do you guys think you'll be in Utah?

Great pictures. Looks like you had a good time. Someone will have to explain to me about crack the egg--sounds like fun--to watch. Glad you are back safe!

What a fun trip for you guys! It looks like you had such a blast. I'm completely jealous.

I went to BYU-Hawaii and it always takes me back down memory lane when I see pictures of Laie or the North Shore.
