We had a very nice, relaxing Easter this year. Ben and I were out late with friends on Saturday so we decided to do brunch instead of breakfast so we could have a chance to sleep in! After dragging ourselves out of bed I cooked brunch and we all pigged out!
Later on some friends came over and surprised us by breaking cascarones over our heads! I had never heard of this tradition but it is so fun! Basically, it is a hollowed out egg filled with confetti; when cracked over the head it is said to bring good luck! After vacuuming up the confetti we all lounged around for a while before heading out to do the Makapu'u hike.
We have done the Makapu'u hike at least five or six times and it is one of our favorites! It is a two mile round-trip hike with breathtaking views of the coastline, mountains, and an old lighthouse. At the top of the hike we got lucky and ended up seeing about 20 or so whales! There was a momma and baby splashing around together and several others that surfaced and splashed. It was so cool! After our hike we ended up stopping at Outback for a delicious dinner!
All in all we had a great day and it really made me realize how lucky I am to have such a wonderful family! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter too!
