Hawaii...

Today was my birthday. It was an early start, as we had to catch our flight out of Greenville to make our way to Hawaii. I had overly ambitious plans for the plane ride, but alas... I slept most of the way and enjoyed some in-flight movies.

I feel so relaxed here. Everyone is so supremely nice and I am so excited to be here. To the left is a picture of our new bird friend, a house sparrow, who was watching us eat sushi and eating the occasional grain of rice from the palm of my hand.

Right next to the show is a store called, The Liqueur Collection. And what a collection it is! They have probably one of the most extensive collections of beers and ales that I've seen in a long time. They even had an obscure brand of tequila that has Frida on it that Jean Yates mentioned in her blog about a year ago. Unfortunately, I didn't drop the $90 for the bottle. Sorry Jean!

Just down the way was a really cute children's boutique that Azalea just loved! It was called, "Cupcake." She got a little Asian baby-doll, whom she named, Asa. I am really impressed with how many cute little shops are around.

Here's a picture of Greg, Cynthia, and Azalea. We're staying at the Aqua Spa: Bamboo and it had a really great manager's reception where everyone was so friendly. We enjoyed the musical talents of "Uncle Ned" and sipped these great tropical cocktails called, Bamboozles.

Isn't that sunset the perfect way to end the day? Well, actually ending it with gelato and a soak in the hot-tub was the perfect way to end the day and celebrate my birthday.
