We made it!!! We have been so busy the minute we got off the plane, so now i have internet and time to blog! The guy that drove us here gave us a little tour of Laie so we knew how to get places. BYU has been loads of help too the people here know everything and they are the nicest here. We've gone to beaches, memorials, tours, and stores.......Our second day we went on a tour around the island with a group of new BYU students...we saw the Valley of Temples, which is a chinese looking place and a cemitary together....there was a buddist temple too. Then we went to this point were you can look down on half of the island, it was windy and beautiful up there. Next was the swap meet, it was neat to see all the different things there, it was a the Aloha Stadium in Honoulu. Then we went to the USS Arizona Memorial, there was a video then we went out by the ship. Then the next was my all time favorite....Walmart, we got all the little things we needed to go around the house, and a pillow!! We just share a big king size pillow its nice...ha. Then we went back up around by the Dole Plantation and up to North Shore, where they have the best shaved ice. The line was so long that we decided to wait til another time. By the time we got home we were so tired, but we went and got some food for our apartment.......This is a funny story, we didn't have a car or anything to move our stuff the apartment so we just rolled it down for the hotel all the way to our new place.....it sucked so bad I hated it. It had to be at least a mile long and we looked silly! My shoulder blades hurt....I'm glad its over now...But the beaches are Beautiful and lamar likes school so far, were trying to figure things out still...church is cool its just married couples and some of the have kids...it looks fun so far!
