Recap of my amazing vacation to Hawaii!

So, I had probably the best vacation ever this past week! When we were in the San Francisco airport for four hours I sat with a bunch of girls and we colored pictures for each other. And me, Rhonda and Hannah walked up and down the area and talked, we opened starbursts with our tongues and discussed the whole Beth and Nate situation because Beth ignored Nate for almost the whole trip, because she wanted this trip to be with friends not her boyfriend. Which is sad for him because he doesn’t like that idea at all so he started a notebook with Hannah and all they talk about is Beth. Anyway, the first night was sort of weird. We got there and had to go down to the lobby twice to reactivate our room keys. And it turns out that something in the door wasn’t activated so we finally got in and started unpacking. Then we went out to eat at subway and when Brandon saw us all the guys came and ate with us which was cool. We girls walked back by ourselves and finished unpacking and stayed up for a while talking about stuff including me and Brandon. 😊 I spent a lot of time with him on this trip, if he wasn’t such a player or flirt with so many girls I’m pretty sure him and I would be going out.

But anyway, the first full day there was good! We had the half day tour of Oahu and we stopped at various places to take pictures. Brandon and the guys were on a different bus than us, so we only got together at one of the stops during that. After that we had a free afternoon, so we went to the beach! Rhonda, Tabitha and I went straight into the water! We rode the waves and just enjoyed it. I was so happy to be swimming with friends in the ocean! Everyone else came over after they went out to eat. Rhonda, Tabitha, Brandon and I went back out into the waves. I tried to stay by Brandon, I think he liked my swimsuit. 😊 and like I wrote before, he carried me! Hehe. But he could have just been being nice… there were a lot of instances that week that steer toward he might like me. I found out him and I were in the same group for the scavenger hunt that night. Rhonda found out and she said, “It’s fate!” hehe. So that got me kind of excited for that night. Turns out though that I was completely exhausted during that so the scavenger hunt wasn’t that fun but hanging out with Brandon and Abby was.

The next day was the Polynesian Cultural Center. It was a long day. But fun. I pretty much explained all about today in the last pages, moving into the night of Tuesday (after we performed). We were all really hyper, so we went out shopping. Originally started all of us but we decided to have the girls and guys split up which was slightly awkward. I think Delia was jealous because the guys were hanging out with us more than her and Bridget. It’s not something we can control, Brandon just ends up tagging along with us when we leave the group. Honestly, I’m glad about that, but he can do whatever he likes. But while we went shopping that night I got pearls, a shell necklace and I think I was running a fever because I was insanely hot and I felt so tired, so we ended up going back and we went to bed. The next day (Wednesday) was snorkeling and the hike up to Diamondhead and that last night while we went shopping was probably the most fun I had with Brandon, him and I walked together and we kept bumping arms and flirting and the whole time Rhonda, Tabitha and Hannah were smiling at us. Maybe he is incredibly oblivious to my feelings for him…? Obviously Delia and Bridget aren’t, I just hope they don’t tell anyone because I don’t’ want people finding out and talking to me about it…. So, that’s pretty much my vacation. I wish I was still there.

Present day me: I love revisiting these journal entries about my band trip to Hawaii! It was an amazing trip and I made really great memories with my friends. It was also awesome to have a sort of flirtation-ship with Brandon during that week.

Well let me write all about this past weekend.

Thursday night the ktown clan came up. Kind of late so they pretty much just got here, and we went to sleep. Then on Friday we all woke up around 8:30-9ish. Us girls played some volleyball, but there was still dew all over the grass, so it was kind of cold and wet. So, we decided to play apples to apples and listen to music. So, I plugged in my ipod speakers and let Gayle manage the music. We then went for a walk into town. Their mom gave Linda $30 because we had to get more than just candy for all the kids. On our walk there Bob had his big white car and almost ran us over, we didn’t know who he was, so we were kind of freaking out. They all started laughing as they passed.

So, we’re walking on the bridge and Gayle wants to get a picture of her and Linda. So, Linda pulls out her camera from the case and the $20 flys out. It went straight into the river, and I stepped on the ten. Gayle went crazy. She called her dad with my phone and told him. I guess he laughed. But anyway, I just got a packet of starbursts and everyone at them all. Gayle ate all of the strawberry banana ones. They were the best kind. So, once we got back we went on the pontoon. Went swimming and tanned a little bit. It was good. Then us four girls paddle boarded back. Then we just pretty much chilled for the rest of the day.

Saturday: summer solstice. We get up and use girls want to go out somewhere like see a movie, go bowling or do whatever. So, we managed to get the moms to take us out for ice cream. I get a chocolate chip cookie dough cone. Before getting ice cream the moms had to stop at the grocery store to pick up some liquor. As we were walking past all the checkouts all the baggers were looking at us. They happened to be all boys. 😊 after visiting town, we just came back and rode the atvs a bunch. And played some board games.

Best part!

So having it be summer solstice dad had a bonfire and Bob shot off fireworks. Earlier in the evening me and Gayle went for a walk down past Tori’s house. And we saw Aaron’s atv there. So, Gayle and me were talking about ways to spy on Tori and Aaron. It was really funny. Back to the bonfire. We had to get two chairs from down by the lake. Me, Meryl and Gayle went down there. Once we got back up, we saw Austin standing by the bonfire. Gayle told him he should go get Aaron and just as we were talking about that we hear Aaron’s atv coming back from Tori’s. But he showed up. And we decided to play sardines. I hid first but on my way to a hiding spot I tripped on a big fricken stump and landed on my chin. It hurt so bad. I ran behind a tree and decided to run across the yard to get away from them, but Eddie got me and I fell to the ground. Then we decided to go inside and we played apples to apples. 10 people total! It was fun! I got to just sit kind of diagonal from Aaron. I won stunning from him. 😊 haha. Then we just talked and the guys flicked bottle caps at each other. It as kind of cool. Austin, Jake and Eddie were on the side with the sliding doors and Aaron, and I were on the other side. Then we started talking again, I showed Aaron my temps. And we talked about driving a little bit. Then we wanted to play a game outside. But we only made it to the deck. And talked some more. Then came back inside, talked more. I asked Aaron what he did today, and he said he went to work, then a junkyard with his dad and he took a nap. He didn’t say anything about going over to Tori’s. But he did mention her. I said I should meet her. He said yeah, that’d be fun. Then they started talking about puppies. Aaron and Austin have a black lab and a husky, and they had puppies. Six weeks old, so at 12:30am we went over to their house and each of us got to hold a puppy. They were just opening their eyes. SO CUTE! So, then we came back here and went to bed. I got up and texted some people, “Guess who I hung out with last night!”

Present day me: This was one of the fun times I had with Gayle and Linda. We were a bit older, and we had more of the same interests. It was nice to have a smooth time with her. I remember hanging with Aaron after knowing he had a girlfriend, who lived just down the street. It was a little weird to me, but I figured we were neighbors, he could hang with Eddie if he wanted to as well. I don’t know what he was telling Tori…. It was probably easy for him to come and hang out at my house after being at Tori’s because she couldn’t see my house from hers. He could just pop over, and she thought he was going home.
