This is a series of videos from my family’s 2011 vacation to Hawaii.
As our 2011 summer family vacation winds to a close, we bodysurfed the waves, buried Jennifer in the sand and explored the island of Kauai.
We island hopped to Kauai from Oahu for the last three days of our trip. This video is my personal favorite, as it contains my best editing work and some of the funnier moments caught on camera. We were beyond impressed with our hotel: the St. Regis- Princeville.
Kristin and I demanded a day at Pearl Harbor, but no one else wanted to go with us. So the two of us made a day of it, visiting the Battleship Missouri (on accident!) and the Arizona Memorial.
The second day on Oahu, we spent most of the time on the beach. For dinner that night we went down to the tourist side of Wakiki Beach near Diamondhead to Azure in the Royal Hawaiian hotel.
One of the Smart family’s favorite vacation spot is Hawaii. This time we began our vacation in Oahu.
