The month after we got married, I went on my first Haupt-Crary Christmas trip to the beautiful island of O'ahu. I had with me my trusty little orange camera with which I documented the trip extensively. One afternoon, Jake and I were playing in some tide pools where I misjudged the width of a rock and fell in the water. My camera met its end, but the SD card lived on. I promptly lost the card when we got home and I have often wondered what those images might have looked like.
Three apartments and a baby later, I was rearranging my bedroom and I found the missing SD card! So without further ado, here are a million pictures of us as newlyweds in one of the most gorgeous places on earth.
^^ This is our faces in pretty much every picture. It was so bright ALL of the time! ^^
^^ Right after I fell in the tide pools, we went to the Polynesian Center and I had to be wheeled around. Jake was having much more fun than I was swerving around the palm trees. ;)
^^ The universal comfort food. ^^
^^ My in-laws. :) ^^
^^ The gong at the Buddhist Temple was surprisingly heavy ^^
^^ A liiiiitle too early for pictures...^^
^^ At the tide pools: the last thing I saw before landing in the water ^^
Hawaii was so good to us. I'm so happy that these images and memories re-surfaced. It was a very warm welcome to Jake's family and I am happy Talia can participate in such a wonderful family tradition of traveling together.
We will be back Hawaii!
