Golfing Trip to Lanai

Saturday morning we got up bright and early and took a ferry over to the island Lanai where the boys golfed two courses. It was one of the highlights of the trip for everyone.
This is a tree that has like a million roots coming out of the ground but it's all one tree. It was pretty cool.

The Ferry ride over

What a handsome stud!

For the morning, Heather and I decided to let the boys golf 18 holes and to stay at the Four Seasons Resort beach. It was a good choice on our part. They thought we were guests so they set up our chairs, an umbrella, brought us towels, gave us pineapple and let us use their beautiful beach. It was such a fun morning- and we met some very interesting dolphin chasers. They literally sat on the beach and meditated for the dolphins to come to shore. It was hilarious, but it must have worked- like 20 dolphins came 40 feet from the shore. We wanted to go out and swim with them, but we had to head off to meet the boys for the 2nd round.

This is me with a bit more color~ The view from the resort was beautiful!

Heather was a great beach buddy-we had a blast.

This was such a beautiful course. It was called the Challenge at Lanai. Bill Gates had this whole course shut down and he got married on the 13th hole. It had the most amazing view. We couldn't take enough pictures.

Shannon was such a trooper- Even in the heat, she went and searched for lost golf balls.

Pictures really don't do the view justice- this is one of my favorite shots.

I think this is the place Bill Gates got married but I'm not positive. Either way it was beautiful!

Shannon finally taking a break!

I even gave it a shot- I was trying to get the ball in the ocean, but I'm not sure it quite made it- oh well! =)
