Our First Year in Hawaii

One year ago today we arrived in Hawaii, we have 2 more years left here! The day we arrived, we were welcomed to the island with pouring rain. So, on the drive from the airport to the base I didn't get much of a view. But the next morning we were all awake early (jet-lag sucks) and decided to go to breakfast off base. The sun was shining and I got to see some of the beautiful mountains first hand, and the ocean of course! A whole year, and I am still in awe of the mountains here, there just amazing and so different from the Rocky Mountains I grew up with! It doesn't seem like we have been here that long...

This is our 3rd and Definitely by far our best duty station yet!!! 3rd times a charm for us!
It can be tough (exiting, stressful, interesting, crazy) moving every 3 years. We not only move to a new house, but a new, city, state, time zone. Island, in this case.
My family moved every few years growing up, so I guess I'm kinda used to it. Although we were always in the same general location of Colorado. The longest I ever remember staying in one place was when I was 14-19 years old.

We have yet to do a lot of the "touristy" stuff. But Hubby has been gone for over half the time we have been here and I want to do things together as a family. Plus, I didn't want to do all the tourist stuff right away anyway, I had wanted to spread it out over the 3 years that were here. Also, I figure whenever my family comes out to visit they will want to do that kind of stuff, then I will be seeing it for the first time along with them! Makes it more fun for me!
