Nate got to/had to go to Hawaii for work, so the kid and I decided to tag along and make it a vacation. Yippee! Since we were lugging a three year old around the whole time, we had to pick and choose what we wanted to do. Before leaving I'd decided that I mostly wanted to see some cool plants and some sea turtles. I must be a lucky cat, because I got to do both!
In other news, we came home to a stinky surprise in the basement. Don't you love built-in blog content? More on that later. Also later, I hope to put together a quick run down on how we kept expenses to a minimum. We definitely didn't treat this trip as a "once in a lifetime" event, but I didn't feel like we nickel-and-dimed ourselves whole time either.
I think the best part of a vacation is having no to-do list for an entire week. You should try it, too!
