The Really Long One With The GREAT Vacation

People keep asking me to put up pictures from my most recent trip, so here they are! Sorry that it has taken me so long. :)

So, Ricky found me a ticket very last minute (one week before flying out) to his family's California & Hawaii trip. I was so excited. I had never been to Hawaii. Work let me have it off, so I packed my bags and hopped on the plane with them to California on Sunday morning.

Monday we spent the whole day at Disneyland.


We went on Rick's favorite ride (the Mr. Toad ride) about 6 times, and my favorite (Buzz Lightyear) about a billion times. Best ride ever.





The next day we went to California Adventure, and yes, I went on the Tower of Terror... I was SOOOO scared! I held on so tight to rick's arm that my wrist hurt for hours after.


Then, on Wednesday, we flew to Hawaii!! We spent most of our vacation at the beach, it was a beautiful beach, with lots of people on it.




Our hotel had a great view!




Ricky spoiled me even more by taking me out on a date, just the two of us. We decided to go to a luau, it had lots of good food, entertainment, and fun activities. We made me a bracelet lei, got tattoos, threw spears, and ancient bowling.







My camera died at the luau :( I was so sad. But it was lots of fun. So, after the luau, we went back to Waikiki Beach and had cheesecake on the beach, then went for a walk. We found a cool pier and just hung out there, I started kissing my man, and he slipped something into my hand! I looked down, and guess what it was!!!

He proposed to me on the beach in Hawaii... how much better can it get? :) He had it all planned out, he even talked to my parents before we left.

The next morning we went back to our pier so we could take pics and videos (if I can figure out how to add video, I will).


Somehow I jumped at just the right time that a wave came over the pier, and it swiped my flip flops out into the water. Rick saved them for me. :)


The next day we went to the Polynesian Cultural Center, and while we were there, we went to one of Hawaii's temples.









So, needless to say, we had a great trip. :)
