Hawaii Trip - Day 8

We went to Planet Hollywood for breakfast and that was a big mistake. I felt ill when we left. That’s what I get for eating at a tourist trap. I won’t be eating pancakes for a long time. Geof however, has found a new meal that he likes and had a few times during the week called, “Moco Loco”. It is eggs, rice, ground beef and gravy. He wants to try a healthier version of this at home.

After Planet Hollywood, we decided to go to the Wet ’N’ Wild, the water park on the island. It was a blast! We went on some fun water slides and then relaxed in the wave pool. When the waves were on, it was pretty intense. My favorite slides were The Flyin’ Hawaiian where it is similar to a regular waterslide, but at the end there is a drop-off into a 12 ft. pool of water. There was another slide called the Raging River that we also loved. It was a 4-person raft that goes fast and had some big drops. We’re big kids when it comes to that stuff!

After the water park, we came back to our hotel and watched our last Hawaiian sunset. Next, we went to the Hilton Hawaiian Village and got some shaved ice. I couldn’t get enough of that stuff! We watched the fireworks show at the hotel and then had dinner at Round Table Pizza. It was really good and the dough was delicious.


Last night, last sunset


I cannot get enough of the sunsets.


Pretty sailboats


Fireworks!

We came back to our hotel, got some souvenirs from ABC and then started to pack for the trip back home.

Day 9 was a travel day and we said goodbye to the beautiful island and headed off to the airport. I don’t think I’ve ever been so sad to come home from vacation. I really hope to go back one day. We had the time of our lives (cue Dirty Dancing music) and enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you for reading my recaps!

Girl, what is it about men? Brian had to have McDonald's for breakfast every morning so he could have Spam and Rice. Then we had to walk to the 7-11 from my sister's apartment in Pearl City so he could get musubi (rice, spam and eggs wrapped in seaweed like sushi).

I sobbed like a baby when we took off from Honolulu. I'm sure it had nothing to do with the fact that I was leaving my niece and my very pregnant sister behind though. :) I sure hope to return one day too. Maybe we should go together. LOL!!!

XOXO

I ate at a really bad Planet Hollywood in St. Louis and as a result will probably never go to another one.

Those sunsets look so beautiful. You got some great pictures and I do not blame you for never wanting to leave!

And I am a definite pizza fiend, so I loved hearing about the pizza place, which if I ever go to there, I will have to try!

I have loved seeing your trip so much and I'm glad that you shared it with us!

What a great time you two had! We just got back from Maui this morning, and my hubbs had a Moco Loco there. He psyched himself into thinking there was Spam in it, and couldn't finish it... Too bad for him!
Thanks for sharing your vacation with us! I'll be posting about Maui later this week if you want to check in!
