Waikoloa Villa

This post might be a little out of order, probably should have posted it before all the other stuff, but here are some shots of the beautifully landscaped areas surrounding the Villa that we stayed in. It was so amazing, as I'm sure you can see:

Follwoing onto the last post there is a group of pictures of the nephews flying a sweet dragon kite!

I'm going to add on another group of pics that we took at the beach with the boys:

Getting sushi with the Arnold Bros 2.0

The internet and digital pictures are an amazing thing. I can remember everyone tweaking my cheeks when I was a little kid, but it's kind of hard to imagine how I'd feel today if my uncle had set up a web site and filled it with goofy pictures of me when I was six. Oh well, we'll have to have Calvin update this post in 25 years to let us know how it may have scarred him for life. Anyway, also unlike me when I was a kid, these boys love sushi, which just seems weird to me. Most kids are so picky it's hard to imagine them eating fish, let alone RAW fish, but I guess it speaks a lot to the cultured nature of their upbringing that they can be so open minded.

Hanging around the Condo before the wedding.

Leading up to the wedding there was a lot of "chillaxing" around the condo with various members of our family. We had a couple great BBQ's and had the nephews over for breakfast. I've sort of collected all the pics from this time together, even though they don't really occur on the same day, they are all thematically the same.

So the friday before the Wedding, Becca's dad played a gig that was organized by his son Danny (seen below playing the drums). It was the first that Larry and Danny had played together so it was a pretty big deal. My Dad took a bunch of pictures, check out the boogie!

Anaehoomalu Bay

This is where we had the ceremony. Dad took some excellent landscape pictures at various times of day.

Scouting out Locations For the Ceremony


After settling into our new digs it was time to check out the amazing pool. It might look chilly, but it wasn't. It was like a constant 80 degrees even when it was overcast. Totally comfortable and amazing. The pool and hot tub were fantastic. But you don't need to take my word for it. Check out the slide show:

Getting There is Half the Fun!

OK, so we'll start off what is sure to be an exhaustive look at all the pictures and video from our wedding, with a quick series of us traveling to Hawaii and gazing at slack jawed wonder at the amazing condo that we'd be calling home for the next 10 days.

Let's get going!
