...I haven't been keeping up with this blog AT ALL!  I'm going to try to keep up with this blog a little more for now on!

New News:
1.)  We have started planning our first trip off of Oahu (excluding our visit home in July) to BIG ISLAND for our one year anniversary!  We have also started planning three more trips in our remaining two years (yes, it has already been a year... wow how time flies!) here out in the middle of the Pacific.  Our trips include Maui, American Samoa and Palau!
2.)  Levus is currently on his first TDY (temporary duty assignment) to Okinawa!  He is gone for around two weeks and learning more about his job!  This is his first time out of the country and we are both VERY excited he is getting this opportunity!
3.)  Our household goods FINALLY arrived on the island in February!  We have enjoyed getting settled in to our home and getting unpacked.  We still have pictures to hang, but overall... we are officially home!

Last weekend Levus and I went hiking on 'Aiea Loop Trail inside of Keaiwa Heiau State Recreation Area.  This was a BEAUTIFUL hike that we are happy to add to our Hawaiian hike belt.  The trail was pretty muddy and slippery throughout, and we came out with muddy pants and shoes, but it was worth it!  The trail is also home to a crashed WWII B-24 bomber plane that we had the opportunity to find!

Trail Head!

  1. I loooooove the Aiea Loop Trail!! We've done that one a few times.
    Glad you're posting again!
    If you're interested...I've blogged about a handful of the hikes we've done on Oahu..I seriously need to update with more since we've done so many..but if you're interested... check them out Here: http://brookecoveredingrace.blogspot.com/search/label/Hiking

    You might just find some more that you want to add to your list! Definitely do the Kuliouou Ridge Trail. The views are phenomenal!

  2. Looks like fun! I'm happy your household goods finally arrived. I hate living out of a suitcase every time we move. It's great to hear from you again. :)

  3. Glad to see you are getting settled in. My hubby was recently TDY to Okinawa too. I bet they just missed each other. I hope he is enjoying himself there. Sounds like you have some fun trips planned in the upcoming years. And yes, the time does fly out here in the Pacific!
