In Hawaii, finally.


It took 24 hours to get to Hawaii. The weather was terrible yesterday morning and eveywhere we went we had delays, but we made it.
Today we rented a little red mustang and drove from Kona to Hilo, stopping at every scenic overlook (and some that weren't) and had a wonderful day. This evening Supervalu (my husband's wholesale company that brought us here) had a wonderful dinner and luau. They even have a kodak kiosk where we can print out free pictures. They brought a beach bag full of every snack known to man (chocolate, twizzlers, reeses and much more)
Tomorrow morning we are taking a helicopter ride over many of the beautiful waterfalls and the erupting volcano. I am posting a picture of what I can see when I wake up in the morning-right from the bed.

I wish I could be there--not that I mind the snow. But i am thinking of a refreshing swim to wake me up.
