Aloha, Hawaii!

Day 1 of our Hawaii trip:

For the first few days of our vacation, we're in Oahu.  Fermin won this part of the trip (and the flight getting us to and fro!) for doing such a great job at work.  Way to go, Fermin!!! We're staying at the Kahala Hotel and Resort thru Sunday.  Thank you, McAfee.

Here's the view from our balcony:
Golf course view...
and if you stand in JUST the right spot, we have an ocean view!
Fermin is in meetings until 4pm today, and so I'm just hanging around.

I went for a run this morning, just got to eat yummy swordfish tacos, and now I'm out on the balcony about to serenade myself with my ukelele! (Which, by the way, I bought when I was in Maui a few years ago...) Not a bad day at all!

This is the first vacation Fermin and I have taken since Lucy and Ricky joined our family.
Just about an hour before we left for the airport yesterday...
I have the best sister in the world~ She flew in from New Mexico to stay at my house and take care of Lucy and Ricky while we're away!  I know they're in great hands.  She and I look a lot alike, so they may not even know the difference!

Tonight, there will be an award reception and dinner for all the Mcafee people.  The Counting Crows will be performing~ which would be more exciting if we hadn't already seen them last time we were at one of these work trips, which also happened to be in Hawaii.  (This is a little like the movie, "Groundhog Day".)  I think they should've instead invited Eddie Vedder to perform his "Ukelele Songs" CD!  But sadly, they did not ask for my opinion. 

But hey, we're in Hawaii!  I really can't complain, can I?!
