We had a looooong flight. Getting from Albuquerque to Oakland was fine, (other than having to get up at 3am!) Getting from Oakland to Honolulu was a different story. First, Derek realised that I had been assigned a seat and he had not, next our flight was delayed 2 hours, and when we finally boarded the plane, we had to wait on the runway another 1/2 hour because of bad weather. Oh yeah, and the $5 ice cream I bought at the airport was terrible. WE ARE HAPPY THOUGH! :) :) :) Everyone is getting along and we have been having a wonderful time. We saw a monk seal on the beach and ate lunch at a really tasty bakery today. We barbequed last night and went swimming tonight. There is some big news - no more Captain Howie! That's right, after an entire year of planning, we decided to scrap the entire Captain Howie/Kualoa Ranch wedding at the last moment and planned an entirely different wedding in just a few hours. I'll post more about that another time though. We're getting up early to get our marriage license, so it's time for bed!
