It's Friday so that means Kelly is hosting Show Us Your Life! I am SO sad because my pictures somehow didn't get backed up when we got our new computer. So I only have a few from our Switzerland vacation :( I went with my a couple cousins and my aunt and uncle because my cousin Kristin is married to a man from there and they were having a second wedding. I just had to tag along! It is very beautiful there. I will be the first to admit I didn't enjoy the trip as much as I should have. I had extreme jet lag and didnt' sleep a whole night through the entire time we were there. I definitely should have taken some sort of sleep aid. But I would love to go back and have Eric go this time!

This first picture is me and my cousin Heidi at the lake by their home.

They live in Estavayer-le-Lac and it a charming town. This was when we were on our way to the castle in town. I loved loved loved the cobblestone roads and all the window boxes filled with flowers.

If memory serves me right this is the view from the castle.

This was when we were visiting the Matterhorn. I loved the little signs. Everything looks better in French :)

And this last picture I have is a different castle that we visited one day. I don't remember the town off hand. But it was so fun to see. Looked like something out of a movie!

Reception/Hawaiian Honeymoon

Kelly is hosting Show Us Your Life today! I just looked and apparently don't have any reception pictures on this computer. I will have to find them later. But, I do have our honeymoon pictures. We were able to go to Maui and it was so wonderful. Hawaii is my absolute favorite place on earth and I was so excited that Eric and I could go together. I'm hoping we can save up and go again for our next vacation!

We stayed at the Outrigger in Napili Bay and it was such a beautiful location. This was the view from our room.

We went on a snorkeling excursion to Molokini and Turtle Bay.

Eric of course had to get a kiteboarding session in. I think he would have died if he hadn't gotten to go out at least a couple times :)

Oh that water makes me want to be there right now! Eric did accidently hit a turtle out there - oops!

The pineapple plantation was one of our favorite things that we did. It was so fun. Ignore the short skirt - I have since realized I should not wear such things! haha!

We rented a mustang convertible the whole time and it was so much fun! One day we went on the Road to Hana and it was just beautiful.

And here we are spending the evening downtown Lahaina.

We also went on a dinner cruise, and I agree with Kelly. It was NOT worth the money and I definitely wouldn't do it again.

So there you have it, now I can't wait to go back!
