I had the best 3 weeks visiting my family in Hawaii and I’m excited to share the highlights with you all! I hope you enjoy this post and have a lovely morning:)
After spending getting rid of the jet lag, my aunt drove us to a great hiking spot. I haven’t been hiking in ages and I haven’t seen this particular spot since I was a young girl. It was a couple miles to walk but the view was absolutely breathtaking. I especially enjoyed snapping some photos from the lookout. I seriously felt like Moana leaning out towards the ocean!
A classic Jasmine vacation is not complete without a day of shopping! We per used several places but my favorite had to be Ala Moana. They had so many stores, including some I don’t typically see in a mainland mall. I actually racked up some pretty sweet deals hat I will share in a collective shopping haul later this week. I made my first purchase at Zara and quickly fell in love with the store. Zara is similar to forever 21 but the quality of clothes is a bit nicer and is a little more pricey.
You can’t beat the local food in Hawaii…period. I went to dozens of places with the family but you grandmas homemade fried rice and puertogese sausage and fried rice was definitely my favorite. If you ever go to Hawaii and want to eat great local food, try L&L and pearl’s. Both restaurants have amazing plate lunches and dinners!
I can’t go to Hawaii without at least seeing the ocean at least once! My family had a day of stand up paddling, an whilst I’m not really a fan of the activity, it was great to see them have so much fun. My younger cousins even got a chance to learn from my uncle.
We had time to squeeze in a couple of movies before we headed home and I’m so glad we did! I saw the newest Despicable me(so cute!) and Spider-Man Homecoming(very good!) with my family. Bonus points was grabbing mochi afterwards… bubbies is the best!!🙈I haven’t sat down in a theater with the whole family Ina while and it was such a great time!
*Pro tip: Buying the kids portion of movie snacks no only saves you money but allows give your perfect portion size!
My uncle and I had fun jamming to the preview music and if he’s reading this, dancing in the movie theaters is totally in right nowXD
I had such a great time with my family, and although I’m sad to leave them for the summer I’m happy I got to share such fun memories with them. My two younger cousins were such a delight to hang out with and I love them dearly. I can’t wait to see them grow up into talented and respectful young adults!
I hope you enjoyed this post and be sure to stay tuned for apartment updates!
