Our First Wedding Anniversary

To celebrate our first wedding anniversary we went camping at Malaekahana on the north shore. We
had not used our tent since we lived in it on the farm so it was good to set it up again and reminisce about our start on Oahu nearly 3 years ago. The camp site was really nice and we enjoyed spending uninterrupted (no cellphones) time together. We sat up our camp and then walked the beach. As we were walking we saw a lot of Portuguesse Man-O-War (box jellyfish) so we were a little skeptical about going in the water  but that didn't stop Zach from taking a quick dip. Even though the sun was still up we decided to start our campfire as there were dark clouds forming over the mountains and we were hungry. We cooked up some chili dogs and made s'mores for dessert. After we ate we walked the beach again for a little bit and then drank champagne while enjoying the sound of the waves. Everything was great about camping except for the fact that we got no sleep.  It was windy so our tent was flapping all night and for whatever reason we thought the ground would be soft enough that we would not need an air mattress but it was hard as a rock! (our mistake). We got up around 6:00 and ate breakfast by the ocean then we packed everything up and left the camp ground after 7:00. Our plan was to stay at the north shore for the majority of the day but we were zombies and just wanted to go home. I took a 3 hour nap and we bummed around our house before going out to dinner. On Sunday we did a 5 mile hike and on Monday I took the day off of work so we could go to the water park. It was nice having a long weekend together to celebrate our first year of marriage!

Beach Photo Shoot

It seems our GoPro movies have taken place of our blog...and the fact that we haven't really been exploring much this summer. Work and school have been taking up the majority of our time lately. But we have a few fun things planned in the next couple of months.

How the heck is it already August? It's crazy that we will be celebrating our first wedding anniversary next weekend! Our first year of marriage has been awesome. I am very blessed to have Zach as my husband and for the life we share together.

I was able to talk Zach into taking pictures on the beach for our one year anniversary and I think he actually liked it. We were laughing through the whole shoot and I love that the photographer was able to capture those moments of us being silly and truly in the moment!
