Thursday Thirteen: What Mom did in Hawaii without me

Somehow, Mom had a really great time in Hawaii without me! Can you believe that? You would not believe all the pictures I found on her camera, and none with me!! Here are 13 things she did in Hawaii without me.

1. Drank Mai Tais (this is the view out of her hotel room, rough huh?).

2. Visited the USS Arizona Memorial.

3. Visited the Battleship Missouri.

4. Climbed Diamond Head (0.7 mi trail going up 560 feet leading through a tunnel, climbing 271 steps through a narrow spiral staircase inside an unlit bunker).

5. Watched surfer dudes at Sunset Beach on the North Shore.

6. Visited Waimea Valley.

7. Visited the King Kamehameha Judiciary Center.

8. Learned about the last monarch of Hawaii, Queen Lili'uokalani.

9. Ran along the beach at Waikiki.

10. Saw the blow hole.

11. Spent quality time with her uncle, mom, and aunt (in order with Mom in between her uncle and mother in the orange tee and white shorts).

12. Went to a lu'au.

13. Drank more Mai Tais.

Fortunately for me, all such things must come to an end. But I do still have two pictures I can't figure out what they are. I may need some help.....

That looks like a very beautiful place! I am glad your mom had a good time. But I am sure she would have had more fun if you were there, too!

Parker said...

What a beautiful place! Hooray that your Mommy is home, I know you must have missed her a lot.

It's hard when our moms like to travel, but nevermind. I have the BIG BOY and he's MINE, I tell you! Mine! Tigger doesn't own him, I do.

Leslie said...

Hawaii is fabulous - so our mom says. And don't listen to Pye, she's such a child. And I own the big boy. - Tigger the F.B.I. cat

Those are really pretty pictures, but I don't see how your momma could have really had a good time without her Meezers.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

The Meezers or Billy said...

Gemini said...

It looks like that was a bootiful place for your Momma! I think the beach would have been very fun.

Mom sed if she went to dat place she would never have wanted to come home...this is why we do not let our mom go away. Ever.

LZ said...

Oh yeah, looks like your mom had a HORRIBLE time. You should make sure she never goes anywhere like that again.


Tybalt said...

Those are beautiful pictures, but I bet your mom would have had A LOT more fun if she had taken you with her.

None said...

I can't believe she can have fun without you! This is just outrageous. Im so glad you are ok from the earthquakes... and Kavan :) Your costume is the cutest, it fits you so well (other than the fact that an angel costume would have been much more appropriate than a witch)!


Captain Jack and Sir Dante said...

That last pictures is just breathtaking. It looks like your Mommy had a lot of fun on her trip!


Oh how beautiful...still she needed both you and Kavan there to have had a REALLY good time.

I see your Mom smiling! Without you!! But I bet she thought about you every day she was gone;)
I bet that earthquake was scary!!
I have never felt one.

Our mom and her mom (Nanny who was 72 at the time) visited Hawaii and they climbed Diamond Head and saw many of the things your mom did. When mom's dad was in the Navy he was stationed on Oahu in the early l950's - so Nanny wanted to go back. Although things were different then (before Hawaii became a state) - it was amazing that some 45 years later they actually found some old friends that they knew when they lived there. Nanny loves Hawaii and would probably like to live there again.
