Aloha from Hawaii!

After a very, very long set of flights (DCA -> MSP -> LAX -> HNL), we finally arrived in Honolulu yesterday evening around 6:30pm.  We decided it was better to stay up and have dinner than to go to bed early, so after we checked into the Marriott Waikiki, we headed out on food to explore for food.

Not wanting to venture too far on the first evening, we had dinner at Cheeseburger in Paradise, a kitschy local burger joint.  The food was actually quite good, but we skipped the $6.75 sodas and $11 beers!  Luke devoured his grilled cheese sandwich on Hawaiian sweet bread, Eddie had a pico de gayo hot dog, and Becky and I had burgers (very delicious burgers).  We were famished after the long flights.

After this, we strolled very briefly along the beach, and then headed back to the hotel for bed.

Today, we're going to head out to see the USS Arizona memorial at Pearl Harbor, and maybe just spend some chillin' time on the beach at Waikiki.  Nothing too exerting.
