Hawaii--Day 1

We spent most of today on airplanes as we made our way to Honolulu. We were so lucky to have enough points to fly first class. It took about an hour and 15 minutes to fly from Albuquerque to Dallas. The remainder of the flight took a little over 8 hours. We left Albuquerque at 9:30 AM MST and arrived in Honolulu at 4:10 PM Hawaii time (8:10 PM MST). The seats we had were able to recline almost all the way flat :-)

For our meal, they served us warm nuts in a small dish to start. That was followed with salad and bread and THEN a choice of filet mignon or ravioli for a main course. Dessert was ice cream with a choice of toppings.

After getting settled into our hotel room, we went to dinner at Cheeseburger in Paradise. We made a quick stop in an ABC Store and then headed back to our room.

Here are a few pictures from our day...

Brooke and Candace eating their entree.

Brooke reclined her seat to take a little nap (we also got quilted blankets and a large pillow).

Candace and I in our taxi (which happened to be a limo).

Us at "Cheeseburger in Paradise."

Ready to order!

They enjoyed drinking their lemonade and diet soda out of these pineapples.
