We're going to Hawaii!

So, happy new year and all that, hey? 

Today, Ky and I booked plane tickets for a trip to Maui in April.  This isn't the usual kind of trip that you'd expect the two of us to take, but our dear Shannon is getting married, and so we're going to spend almost a week there at the end of April.  (I'm going without Chris, because he's teaching, and because we can only afford to send one of us.) 

Ky and I decided that we should fly out at the same time, and so we booked our tickets together.  Possessing plane tickets has made it all seem more real.  This means that we've now spent our day calling each other, alternating between reeling from sticker shock, and marveling at the fact that we are really going to Hawaii.

Okay, I've also been making hypothetical vacation plans entirely based on TV shows that had special Hawaiian episodes in the 80s and early 90s.  I've decided that Ky's going to briefly fall in love with a surfer, while I'm going to try to save an old hotel (owned by a never-before-mentioned long-lost relative) from evil developers.  It's a good thing that the Cunninghams only went to California, because neither of us will be jumping a shark while we're there. 

What other wacky adventures do you think we'll have?  (Don't worry: we've already decided that we'll do at least the clap/jazz hands from the Very Brady Sequel when we're in the plane, if not the entire "Good Time Music" dance sequence.)

The Sequel to Dumb and Dumber - "Silly and Sillier Go to Hawaii". Does Hawaii know you are coming? Someone should warn them.

It's too bad I don't still have that exact shirt that Greg's wearing in that scene.

How did you KNOW I was going to suggest the Good Time Music number? I love that movie so much.

Love it! You save that hotel! And have a great trip. Just a little jealous. (I remember Shannon from university too!)

you have to attend a big fancy "just for tourists" luau put on by the hotel/resort and get separated from your family and fall in love with a hula dancer. i believe in order to do that you must be Kurt Cameron and a member of the cast of Growing Pains.
