Hawaii overload!!!

Hawaii was amazing. Sky diving, snorkeling, swimming, paddle boarding, pearl harbor, luau's and so much more. We had a great time!
Our first day we were picked up at 6:15 by the sky diving co. and taken to a private airfield. We got a quick speech about sky diving and then got to decide on what height we wanted to go on.
Most people (and first-time sky divers) only jump at 9,000 ft. I say only because the other choice of the day was a 14,000 ft jump. Normally a lot more expensive, but lucky for us they were having a "special" that day. So all of us (everyone in our group) opted for the higher jump. I mean why not? We are already jumping in HAWAII, why not go all out.
At 14,000 ft you get a little over 60 seconds of free fall and over 5 minutes of glide time.
Once again WOW!
We rented a convertible one day and drove all over the island. We were able to stop wherever and whenever and it was great. We saw so many different beaches and landmarks.
It was fun to just cruise.
We were also able to go snorkeling in Hanama Bay, wander around in awe at Pearl Harbor and go to a luau.
In between all of our activities we made sure to enjoy the sun, sand, water and shops.
Hopefully we can make Hawaii a tradition (of some sort).
We can't wait to take the boys!
