My parents generously took the entire family on vacation to Hawaii. We went to the Big Island, which was a first. We had an amazing time, and I can't thank my parents enough for a trip of a lifetime. We took 1000+ pictures! Haha...you read that right! To be fair we just got a new camera lens, and had a ton of fun testing it out. What a better place than Hawaii! After going through all the pictures, and editing it down to a mere 400, I think i am just going to add, in no particular order, some of my favorites from the trip. If you want a more complete view of the trip, check out my sister's amazing blog. http://www.theschmidblog.blogspot.com/. Enjoy!
