Here it is. My U2 in Hawaii experience. Just know, this entry could NEVER do it justice, but I'm going to try. We arrived in Honolulu around midnight, got something to eat (because they don't feed you on the plane anymore, did you know that?) and then settled into our mediocre hotel. In the morning, this was our "partial ocean view" as advertised. Not too bad, I thought.
It was extremely hard to pick only a few pictures, but here are a few (ok, a bunch) of my favorite pictures from the night. I have a ton of video as well, but for now I'll just honour you with the pictures. :) Videos to come later! Seriously, they're great (at least I think they are).
A few more favorites
Have I mentioned how freakin' close we were? :)
THANKS U2!!! YOU GUYS KNOW HOW TO ROCK!!!
Although the day after the concert was a bit sad, we were still in Hawaii, so we managed to drag ourselves out of bed and go to the beach, go for a walk and do a little bit of shopping. It was very fun (and a bit sad) to see all the U2 t-shirts walking around. We would quietly say to the people as we walked by, "Great concert, hey?" to which they would exclaim, "It was AMAZING!!" and we'd yet again make some new friends. Aaaah, the U2 community is a great thing. Anyways, here's us at the Hilton with the penguins. Bren had talked about these penguins for weeks before we went, so I had to take a picture.
We had to sit at the Hilton and enjoy a little sunny, beach drink.
Celebrity sighting! Can you tell me who it is?
So, on our last day we decided to rent a vehicle and drive up to the North Shore. We were lucky enough to get the last convertible Mustang. Not too shabby!!! Yes, we're spoiled. :)

For those faithful readers of my blog, I'm sorry that I haven't updated about my trip yet. When I got back, I was extremely tired, so I pretty much slept all day and then it was on with Christmas "things." Present buying, parties, etc. I have one project that has kept me very busy and I will blog about that after Christmas because I'm actually a little proud of myself (if that's not too bold to say). I can't blog about it yet because it's a gift for someone who reads this blog and I don't want to give anything away to him/her. Anyways, the quick update is that the trip was AMAZING!!! I would do it again tomorrow. If you're not satisfied with the quick update, then contact me soon and I'll show you my 200 pictures/video and tell you all the stories in about, oh, 2 hours. haha I've also moved into a new place that I'm house sitting and the computer isn't too fast, so I don't have access to blog as frequently, so if I don't talk to you, see you or blog before Christmas, I pray that you all have a wonderful, safe, Christ-filled Christmas ... He is the Reason for the Season, after all. Merry Christmas, everyone!
