Best birthday present

This weekend my sweet, wonderful husband chartered a helicopter to fly our family over our beautiful island in honor of my birthday! It is an amazing experience, not only to see the mountains and waterfalls up close and personal, but also for us to see the parts of the island we have never seen before because they are inaccessible by car, and the hiking trails are too dangerous to take the kids on. It was a great way for us to see the island really well before we have to say goodbye to it. The ride was a magical experience for all of us…here are some images from the tour.

  1. Awesome! I'm sure that it was a breath taking experience for you and your family. My husband and I took a helicopter tour of The Big Island of Hawaii several years ago and we still talk about how amazing it was. Good luck with your move and all of your new adventures!
