    Finally getting the chance to read all this! What a fabulous trip … I’d love to do it someday. But I’ll find our Mayflower ancestor first! ;-) BTW, it’s my side of the family, not your dad’s! Thru the Harrow line.

  • You and Dad absolutely need to Nantucket/Martha’s Vineyard!!! You would love the experience!

    I thought you finished researching your side of the family’s history. Whoops! Haha!

    Hahaha! Genealogy is never finished!! We’ve got hundreds of years of stuff to go thru …. and the tree roots keep spreading, the more you search! ;-D

The Big Island, Hawaii | Kona, a Volcano and Hilo

  • Ah I totally agree with you about the East/North parts of the island!! I loved the Eastern side, which is where we stayed. When you go back, you have to do the Pillbox hike near Lanikai beach. It was my favorite!! Go early and watch the sunrise!!! Also, Koko Head Crater is another good hike, but it’s also good to go early because it gets really hot. Loved seeing your photos!!! I can’t wait to go back someday (hopefully) soon!!

Life is an Adventure with You | 2014 Travels

I am so blessed to have Kyle in my life and share the same love of traveling. I have been told to take advantage of this time in our young lives to travel. They are so right because I know once we settle down we will slow down the amount of time we take off for…
