I LOVE HAWAII!!! So the only thing that could really make it better here (besides Max of course) is the company of my family! And this past week Mom & Dad & Lacey came out to visit me and we had a blast!!! We ate tons and tons of food as usual on vacation and did lots of fun stuff. Too bad the rain was bad here this week otherwise we could have gotten more stuff in but it was still a blast! Thanks Mom and Dad for coming to play with me and allowing me this life-changing experience of college in Hawaii, i really appreciate it. LOVE YOU!!!

This is the famous "Shrimp Shack," there's like 5 different ones but this one is the best. It's called Giovannie's. We only came here only once believe it or not but it was amazing shrimp!

Mom & Lace at the Shrimp Shack

If you take a close look at lacey's arm it might looked nastily diseased, but really she got about 32 mosquito bites on ONE ARM!! They left a window open one night that didn't have a screen on it....oops!! So the lady that rents out the house was like "AAHHHH I"M SO SORRY" she went right away to get some bug bombs to kill them all. It was crazy!!

Her lumpy elbow.

Going on an adventure on!!

I took them through this little trail and it lead to this huge tree. This is the "Lost" tree, where the TV series "Lost" was filmed. Pretty cool!!!

So if you follow this trail back for a little bit it takes you somewhere AWESOME!!! You recognize it??

Here's the beach that the TV series "Lost" was/is filmed. Its so pretty over here and it's kinda hidden, you gotta walk to it but its awesome!! One time I touched a sea turtle here it was rad.

There are these hanging vines from the trees that are fun to play around on. You can swing from them so I was pushing Lacey around. You shoulda seen mom trying too it was good. 

Ok this is the tree from "Lost" that is famous and its gynormous!! Fun though!!

Cabela Bay is what it's called, this is so awesome!!! 

Pretty picture still at Cabela Bay!! Its cool cuz you gotta walk through this over thing of bush to get to the beach area. 

These little guys are everywhere on the sidewalks, they are snails for those of you who don't know. They're nasty and so are the slugs that are everywhere!!

Apparently dad has some problem with the sun on the back of his knees, he got some gnarly sunburns back there! Kinda like his feet they do the same thing when they see the sun. haha

Took this at the beach across from my house this week, its beautiful!!

Here we are sitting at my house, that surf board in the background is what this local kid gave our house for free!!! Dad looks like he's a little handicap (wink wink) and all of us got burned that day!!

Here's mother at Ted's Bakery, the most delicious place ever. We ate here about 6 times while they visited and it's amazing. Things like crab & bacon sandwhich, shrimp sandwich with guava butter sauce, Chocolate Haupia (coconut) pie, and Coconut danish!!! SO YUMMY!!

Here's silly Dad at Ted's Bakery picking his nose and eating it. 

And Lacey at Ted's Bakery (for the 8th visit)

These two could never switch over on Hawaii time, still on AZ time!! So when they passed out asleep mom & I would just stay up and play games...checkers that she killed me at!!!

Dad's favorite car to ride in!! haha here's the rental car, you know how much dad loves little cars. It was funny. 

Here's the vacation rental house they stayed in. The upstairs left section of the house was there's and it turned out to be real nice, minus the mosquito problem!!

This was an adventure to capture a picture of the fam without the wind blowing our hair straight back so we look bald, or all forward so it looks like we just got shocked. We finally got one Saturday morning before they left to the airport and just before we got our last acai bowl of the trip. My house mate Kelsey is so awesome, she came along with us and took a bunch for us. 

Ok while they were visiting we went to the ACAI BOWL place about 23 times, not even joking!!! They are so incredibly good!!! My favorite was when dad ordered one and said he wanted double of all the toppings and the lady was like, "Extra Everything??" and he's like YEP!! haha thats the best was to do it!!

Ok so one night after the fam left, when like 15 people were over I somehow talked everyone into playing the game "Measuring For Coffins" so we got every single one of them!!! HAHA it was so perfect and i laughed my head off, most people laughed it off but a few thought it was dumb. SO FUNNY!! We even got to the point of putting in the water first, then dumbing it. Oh you shoulda seen the reactions!! ha look at that guys pants!!

HAHA This one was bad, it made me laugh so hard I LOVE IT!!
