It is crazy to think that it has been four years since my family and I hopped on a plane and went to Hawaii. Every moment of the trip is still fresh in my mind. It seems like it was just yesterday when I stepped of the plane where we were welcomed into the Oaho, Hawaii with leis. I dreamt about...Tags:
