On our last day in Hawaii, our flight left at 8:30 pm, so we had most of the day on the island. We decided it would be fun to go on a zipline tour. We checked out of our hotel in the morning, and headed over to the zipline course. My mom and dad watched Gavin for the afternoon and got to watch us on some of the ziplines. The ziplines were so much fun! The ziplines were up in the trees pretty high. The scariest part was the bridges that you had to cross and climb to get to the next zipline. The bridges consisted of mostly 2x4's! It was exhilarating and a good adrenaline rush!

On Friday night of our trip, we went to a Luau! The Luau was on a plantation which grew acres and acres of tropical fruits, had beautiful trees, and farm animals. There is a train that travels through the plantation. The plantation offers train rides before the Luau, so we boarded the train and took a tour of the plantation. The plantation grounds were really pretty and Gavin really liked being on the train. After the train ride, they dropped us off back at the Luau. We found our table and then the Luau buffet started. The food was really good, especially the pork! We were really close to the stage, so we got a really good view of the Luau. Gavin didn't like the loud noises and all of the action going on, so we had to stand in back with him for some of the time. It was a fun night, and I'm glad we went!
