off to Hawaii!!!!!!!!!

We are sitting in the hotel room in Vancouver waiting to go to the airport for our flight to Honolulu. Last night we went to visit Colin's cousin Craig, his wife Kelly and their kids Cooper and Anika. They fed us an amazing salmon dinner - much nicer than a restaurant.  We figure we should enjoy homecooked food whenever we can, we will be sick of restaurant food in a few weeks!

We all enjoyed the stretch limo ride to the Toronto airport from Peterborough.  Phil & Issy (Vicki's parents) were flying out to go on a cruise the same day, so they came along for the ride. 
The flight here was pretty good.  Ended up in the emergency exit row, so Colin actually could move his legs around.  Colin watched golf and Vicki watched curling - no commenting on our dorkie choices! 
It is great to finally start this trip, although tomorrow will be more fun since it will not involve airplanes or airports, just sunny Hawaii. 


  1. Great limo photos. Dad looks very "hip" in his jeans.

  2. Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to say on a bright Hawian Christmas Day
    That's the island greeting that we send to you from the land where palm trees sway
    Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright
    The sun to shine by day and all the stars at night
    Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaii's way to say Merry Christmas to you

    okay so it's not Christmas, but I can't get this song out of my head after reading your post... LOL
