Our Lava/Lovin' LDW

Hey there! I hope you all had a great long weekend. Ours was awesome. As the title of this post suggests, Tim and I encountered lots of dried lava during our weekend trip to the Big Island AKA the Island of Hawaii, from beaches to our dinner view to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. It was a great place for us to visit since we love adventurous activities and beach time. Oh, and the Kona International Airport is the most adorable and relaxed international airport I've ever been to!

I think we also fell more in love with each other and Hawaii after this weekend. Tim and I kept saying how lucky we were to be able to make such wonderful memories together at places featured in must-see books. This is the definite upside to him being stationed in Hawaii because we'd already done most of what there was to do around where he used to be stationed in Virginia. I'll let photos do the rest of the talking about the amazing trip:

We ended our 4-day weekend with some poolside time in Waikiki (photo above), Buffalo Wild Wings with Tim's workshop, and then sadly at a prayer ceremony for his higher up's newborn baby who passed away. It definitely makes me appreciate life and my time with loved ones all the more, and trust that everything happens according to God's plans.
