On David’s birthday we woke up early and went to Manoa Falls to do a hike! It was much easier than we thought it would be – really easy up and down. But it was so fun and really pretty. On the way down we saw some bamboo and couldn’t help but do a little bamboo climbing contest 😉 we love doing competitions. But I will say that I had a better angle for his photos and he conveniently didn’t go as far down for mine.. hmmm… suspicious! Just kidding he definitely won but I could have sworn I was higher than that.
After our hike we went and did a doors off helicopter ride with friends! It was the most fun we have had on a helicopter so far. Our pilot was hilarious (he is in the last photo!) and he had music that coordinated with each spot we were flying over (Jurassic Park theme song, Elvis Presley when we went over his house, etc.). He took us over Sacred Falls and Stairway to Heaven and across the whole island and it was just really fun. He would go so close to the mountain and say, “amber I am not going to hit that mountain” and then would swerve up last minute – it was like a roller coaster and it was sooooo fun!!! We sat in the front seats and I liked it up there. (PS this is NOT sponsored and we paid for 100% of our tour but I just really really loved it!) So anyways we used this company and ask for JIM!
After that we came home and got the kids and went to Pipeline to watch the waves. That night we got a Ted’s Bakery pie with candles for his bday cake. We have always done pies instead of cakes for him since my Davey loves pies. I told him 32 things I love about him and it was a good day.
Love ya David, ya old geezer 😉
