One month ago, we celebrated Aaron’s birthday! (How does time pass so quickly?!) This is the seventh birthday of his that we’ve spent together + his first here in Hawaii (last year we were road tripping across the USA). To make this one as special as the ones preceding, we decided to go somewhere on the island that we hadn’t been before!
We packed up two backpacks, drove to the southern part of the island then trekked through the expanse of lava to a hidden beach. It was six miles round trip but it was so worth it! You know that saying ‘Go the extra mile. It’s never crowded.’ His birthday was a perfect example! We had the beach all to ourselves. Twenty coconut trees just steps from the water’s edge. It was wonderful + such a special way to celebrate Aaron’s last 365 days of adventure.
