Aloha Give Away


The North Shore is our favorite place for a dose of sunshine and shaved ice. It is hardly ever crowded and full of secret spots, caves and sea turtles waiting to be discovered. This spot has a neat little cave that we crawl into. It is our secret lair. We have spent many a sunny day cowering in the shaded cubby surrounded by mermaids, baby dragons and sea monsters. What is your favorite local treat or secret spot?

I wish I had a secret hiding spot.

How nice of you to share a little paradise with everybody.

I've been to Oahu twice, Maui once but long to see paradise again. My favorite treats are macadamia nuts and malasadas. Poi is something I can live without.

My secret hiding spot...

I mound up all my clean laundry and dive in.

No one ever finds me.. they never fold the clothes. To get myself out... I have to fold myself out.

Yeah... your's is waaaaayyy better.

I hate you... by the way.

That is some mad skill woman.. heck if it weren't for my lists my kids would eat cat food, the cats would have to use the toliet and I'd be left at the train station like Einstien.. note pinned to my cartigan, my hair a mess, in a haze.. oh wait wasn't he some smarty pants guy too? ha.. have a good weekend in paradise with those beautiful babes of yours.

I am totally living the mermaids and baby dragons part. LOL. What a beautiful spot you have to go to.

JenReg said...

My favorite spot is Mendocino, CA. My hubby and I went there for one for our 10th wedding anniversary and we just fell in love all over again. It's so romantic and beautiful!

I would love to visit Hawaii!

My brother lives on Maui and he loves it.

Very nice of you!

pam said...

I am excited to see what is coming!!

Sarah said...

That sounds like paradise!! My daughters would just melt if we had a cave to call our own. Put that on my list as a top priority! Find a special place to call "ours".

As for a local treat....FL is so full of people from everywhere else, besides the citrus, I can't think of a special treat that FL has to offer.

Abby said...

Great picture! We have a local nature preserve that I love to go to with the G-man and Andy.

Rachel said...

I have Hawaii fever at the moment and this just may send me over the edge. I have got to start planning our trip to paradise before I go insane. I got butterflies thinking you were giving away just that!! This is how obsessed I have become at the thought of being there. A gift basket may just be what can keep me sane until my day in the sun arrives.

Tara said...

Wow your giveaway basket sounds like heaven!! :)

I don't have a real secret place I think.. Just having time to myself in the house makes me thrilled lol

tara @ kidz said...

Wow sounds like fun. You really shouldn't keep all the loveliness to yourself!

Kailani said...

Our favorite family spot is Ko'Olina Beach. It's a beautiful and relaxing place to take the family.
