Day 49 - Beauty

We made it to Hawaii and we were greeted by my brother Shawn, my sister-in-law Tami, and my gorgeous nieces Sadie and Izzy. My nieces gave us leis!

Now, my family is close, like really close and I hadn't seen my brother since last July when he took a job for Hawaiian airlines. And I believe this was the longest I have ever gone without seeing him. My sister-in-law and nieces had been able to come back for occasional visits, but with Shawn's lack of seniority, he is unable to get time off to visit us in Dallas. It's manly for two grown men to cry because they've missed each other, I promise.

Shawn's apartment complex is on some beautiful grounds about a half mile away from the beach. In the complex live a flock of peacocks that just roam wild.
