Christmas Festivities

Just wanted to share our December happenings so far.
Our stockings are hung and presents continue to pile under the tree.
And we have enjoyed a couple Christmas festivities around the island.
We walked around the Honolulu City Lights last Sunday night. We had heard a lot about it and wanted to go last year but couldn't make it because we just had our scooter then. So we were happy we got to experience it this year. Basically, it's about a block decorated with large displays, Christmas trees, and Christmas lights.
I heard an advertisement on the radio the other day for a Christmas light canoe ride at the Polynesian Culture Center so seeing as we love Christmas lights, it was a no brainer!
Zach and I enjoyed date night up at the North Shore.
The lights didn't start until 6:45 so we stopped by a beach to watch the big waves and as we were walking Zach spotted a big sea turtle resting on the shore.
It was so cool!!
Then we stopped briefly near Sunset Beach to watch an incredible sunset.
Once we got to the PCC we were surprised to see the parking lot full.
We waited in line for about an hour before we got on the canoe ride but it was well worth the wait.
The PCC did a good job at displaying Christmas Around the World and telling the story of Christmas traditions. It reminded us a little of  It's a Small World.
At the end of the canoe ride they had fake snow falling, which was neat.  
We love Christmas time!
This year we added a stocking for Sam

Up at the North Shore:

The pictures don't do justice but the waves were pretty big

We just loved seeing this sea turtle!

Truly amazing
 We wish we could live on the North Shore

Our pictures didn't come out that well from the canoe ride
but this one is very fitting for the season. 

Merry Christmas everyone!
