Weekend Update: Memorial Day Edition

Our Memorial Day Weekend was spent together enjoying the beautiful island of Oahu, our dogs, our friends and each other. I’ll let the photos do the talking!

A beach day on the North Shore

Floatilla with some friends in Waikiki – what I can only describe as a frat party at sea.
We had lots of sober fun at Floatilla, but found out later that many people who attended left their floats, trash and empty beer bottles all over the beach. It’s really disappointing to hear this, because it was such a fun event, but things like this make me not even want to participate anymore.
Fish tacos and margaritas after a long day in the sun
The hysterical reality of family photos and self timer!

And we capped off our weekend by streaming the Memorial Day Floating Lantern Launch. We’ve attended it in years past, but were eager to relax on our couch after a jam packed weekend. 
I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend and took some time to appreciate all the men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms we enjoy every single day.

Linking up here & here!

    That looks like such a fun weekend. I've always wanted to go paddle boarding. Definitely putting it on my to do list for summer.

  • Your weekend looks like such a great time! Flotilla and the lantern launch both sound like such unique experiences, it is SO annoying people left garbage everywhere. I can see why that would drive you crazy!

  • Such beautiful photos. I'm glad you enjoyed the weekend.

  • Your dogs look like the love the beach! My dog would love to go to the beach every day if she could. Sad that people left trash around and ruin the experience for others.

  • It sounds like you had a great weekend and your pictures are beautiful! It's sad people left so much stuff behind after Floatilla, I completely agree that something like that ruins the fun!

  • Those dogs and their coconuts! So funny! I saw a lot of the outrage over Floatilla on Facebook! One of our single friends always goes, and it looks like a great time!

  • Hawaii sunsets are the best, aren't they? Looks like a fun weekend! Those are lucky pups you have to get to play on the beach so often.

  • Wow what an amazing weekend! I'd love to go to Hawaii one day and this looks amazing! I especially like the photos of the dogs playing at the beach! It's a shame people left their trash, if they want the beach to stay beautiful that behavior has to end!

  • Looks like the perfect weekend! That water, oh my gosh, so gorgeous! πŸ™‚


  • Definitely sounds like a solid weekend! I heard about all the trash left behind from Floatilla, that's definitely disappointing to hear. Lets just hope the event coordinators take action for next time!

  • This looks so, so fun! Cute swimsuits too, girl!

  • What a beautiful weekend! That's such a bummer though about the people who left the trash. That same thing happened at the Jersey shore this weekend and it's such a bummer.

  • These pictures are gorgeous! I hope you had an awesome weekend – it was so hot here and still is!
