Five years ago I was hiking a waterfall in Maui with my sister Aleasha, who was about to get married. I told her that in five years we should come to Hawaii again, for her Five Year Anniversary and my Honeymoon

flashback to Stephen's mission pictures?...
A brief explanation:
Since we got married in the middle of the semester then I left of tour, our honeymoon had to be delayed a few months. We drove to Arizona for Michael's (Stephen's little brother) mission farewell, then flew to Hawaii for a week. We stayed at a condo by Turtle Bay Resort in North Shore, Oahu. Craig and Mary (Stephen's sister) set us up with their friend who has a contract with the resort who helped us have access to everything fun. This friend, Brett, made our trip incredible - the condo, car rides, scooters, bikes, horseback rides, snorkel gear, delicious ice cream, and the low down on everything. We were so lucky to be able to go there, it was truly a dream come true.
We had our happily Hawaiian Honeymoon-er after!
