3: 5:52am - Just woke up. I'm going to have mac&cheese for breakfast. 6:41 - Heading to the airport! 7:45 - We just went through the security checkpoint! Time to find our gate. 8:06 - I'm at Chili's. Our plane boards at 9:20 and leaves at 9:50. 12:07pm - We're in the plane. I'm tired. My stomach hurts. The stewardess is blocking the way to the bathroom. She won't let me through. -_- 12:41pm (Hawaiian time) - Just landed at the Lihue Airport! The landing was super fast and rough. I'm not feeling well... I need to go to the bathroom. 1:35 - It's raining. And it's windy. It's cold. Okay, now it's pouring. Seattle has better weather than this. :( 1:46 - At Pizza Hut. I'm super hungry! Still raining :( 3:52 - In our hotel room! It has an awesome view! Plus, our hotel has cool pools, view, shops, etc. We're staying at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Poipu. We're going to head outside in a few minutes. 6:13 - Just got back from the pool. It was really fun! There was a water slide and a hot tub. The weather got better. It didn't rain at all at the pool! My dad just saw two little tiny ants in our room. :| We're going to head out to dinner soon. We're going to eat in our hotel. 7:51 - All the restaurants in our hotel were either 1) closed 2) had long wait times or 3) didn't serve food we liked. We're ordering room service instead. 9:51 - Bedtime! | Sunday - 4/8/2012
4: 8:21am - Just woke up! We're going to move hotel rooms because we have a bunch of tiny ants in the room that are EVERYWHERE. >_< 10:01 - Just finished breakfast at a buffet called Ilima Terrace. It was okay. I had an omlette, rice, a muffin, and miso soup. We ate outside. 10:56 - We're FINALLY moving rooms. To another building. Room 6063. Phew. 11:45 - Going to the Poipu Shopping Village. 12:32pm - At the Kukui'ula Shopping Village. I got a shirt at this store called Hawaiian Salt. 1:12 - Going back to Poipu Shopping Village to eat lunch. I think we're having hot dogs at Puka Dogs. 2:14 - Back at the hotel. I didn't really like the hot dog... It was really salty and it had something weird in it. 5:23 - Just got back from the water. The beach was really fun, but had big waves. The pool and waterslide were really fun. The lagoon was warm and fun to swim in. 7:06 - Waiting for our main course at Dondero's, which is an Italian restaurant at our hotel.. We had fondue and it was really good! They gave us butter that tasted like normal butter but was in the shape of seashells. 8:45 - Back at our room. The spaghetti pomodoro at Dondero's was super good. The desserts were the best! 10:21 - Bedtime! | Monday - 4/9/2012

I had a ham, egg, and cheese sandwich. It was pretty good. Now we're heading to the canyon. 10:31 - We're currently around 700 feet above sea level... I feel like we're going to fall off the side of this 'mountain.' In order to get to Waimea Canyon, we have to go up a scary mountain. 10:42 - 1500 feet above sea level. We stopped at another viewpoint and there was a lot of red dirt. It was really cool. We also saw a little creek with a few waterfalls there. 11:14 - Just got to the top! Elevation: 3400 feet. The view was great! 12:50pm - Just finished lunch at McDonald's. I had an apple pie and some Chicken McBites. It was pretty good. We saw another 5 or so chickens. 2:03 - We just went to the Spouting Horn Park. There was this hole in the rocks near the shore and water literally sprayed out of it and it was really high up. 2:13 - Just got back to our hotel. We're going to head out to the water. 4:43 - We were only at the pool for a short time, but it was still fun. 6:13 - At Yum Cha. We're waiting for our food to come out. 7:28 - The food was okay.

I hope it's good. 2:47 - The food was okay. We ordered a flatbread with just cheese and we got a flatbread with just cheese. No sauce. Just cheese. I was impressed. We're heading back to the hotel now. 4:12 - There was a lot of traffic. We're back at the hotel now. We might head out to the pool, but I don't know because it's raining. 6:19 - Just got back from the pool. I rode the waterslide 13 times. It was really fun... But it poured for the first fifteen or so minutes and I got soaked. 8:56 - Tidepools, a restaurant at our hotel was good. The penne with marinara sauce was okay. I had a drink virgin lava flow and it was really good. It was basically a piña colada with strawberry syrup in it. 9:23 - Started packing our bags. We're leaving tomorrow. :( I liked it here. 10:47 - Bedtime! | Wednesday - 4/11/2012
