It was a “picture perfect” four days in Paradise!  Rick and I laid by the pool or floated in it’s bathtub-like warmth.  We ate junk food normally prohibited with children.  At out frequently.  Walked.  Enjoyed the sunshine on the beach.  Were introduced to the downtown Waikiki nightlife.  Walked some more.  And slept in!

On Saturday morning I decided to walk to the mall by myself.  On the way there I wondered why I was so anxious to go do something that I was able to do at home.  Then it dawned on me – I’m not able to go wander the mall by myself, with no time limit!  Every so often I’d feel the urge to get back and I had to remind myself that I could take all the time I wanted!  It was wonderful!  After the mall I headed up a couple blocks to Ross then over to a yogurt shop we had discovered the day before before finally finding my way back in the afternoon.  I bought myself FOUR dresses - I can’t remember the last time I bought myself a dress!  Rick was shocked too.  I’ve discovered where to buy petite clothes though(!) – Hawaii!  Where the majority of women are Asian and very petite.  I guess we’ll just have to go back when I need more clothes! 

I only included a couple of pictures.  Just imagine any picture of Hawaii and then imagine us in it – you’ll get the idea.  The little birdie below was so pretty that I had to get his picture though.  He just posed for me while his owner watched nearby.

Of course there is always more to tell and a few more pictures  to share but I’ll spare you the details for now.

Thank  you to all who made it possible for us to get away (you know who you are!).
