Seaside Bar & Grill Review | Waikiki, Hawaii

Coconut Delight Breakfast at Seaside Bar and Grill

While vacationing in Hawaii we never fully adjusted to the 6-hour time difference.  Because of that, we started our days around 4AM and by the time our bodies told us that it was lunch time, the clock told us that it was still breakfast time.  Jasper was deep into his first nap of the day…

Growing up, I was a glamper. What’s a glamper, you ask?  It’s someone who enjoys every part of camping except the unpleasant bits.  Things like dirty bathrooms or no bathrooms, hard tent floors, hot or freezing cold temperatures, and having to unpack and re-pack your entire car every time you want a meal or risk attracting every bear within…

4th-of-july-hamburger

Dailies posts are our personal updates.  Photos in this category are our casual snapshots from our cell phones and are marked by rounded corners.  Unless I forget, which happens fairly often.  Whoops. I blinked and suddenly it’s August.  Does anyone else feel that way?  Around here, most of the schools are already back in session.  That’s…
