|Ready for our flight!|
|At the Luau.|
Hawaii has been pretty great to us so far--after two weeks of house hunting, many mispronounced street names, and a nerve-wracking bidding war--we are almost-homeowners! We just had our offer accepted on the perfect house. We still won't close until October, but at least there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
|THE VIEW FROM OUR FUTURE HOUSE!|
I can't complain too much though; we're staying at the Hale Koa right in Waikiki, and we've been able to enjoy the beach or the pool nearly every day. The girls' tan lines are INSANE. They definitely did not inherit my fair skin. We've still tried to be diligent with the sunscreen...even so I managed to get at least one decent sunburn. After that day Dan told me he doesn't think there's enough sunscreen in Hawaii for me to live here. I definitely am not going to get mistaken for a local anytime soon. ;)

|Hotel pool...conveniently located right on the beach.|
|A rare moment of sisterly love.|
|She has the right idea.|
I wish I had more to report, but we only have one car right now, and Dan has been using that most days to drive to Schofield or Tripler to finish his in-processing, and on the days that he's been home we've been looking at houses. But now Dan doesn't have to go back into work for a couple weeks and once we get the ball rolling on escrow I'm hoping we can get out and explore the island a little more.
