We leave for Hawaii in less than a week! Our first flight is an hour and a half to Dallas with an hour layover, then three hours to LA with a four hour layover, then a little under five hours to Kona. It will be a long day of flying. The worst part is going to be the four hour layover in LA. I am tempted to leave the airport, but we won’t have time to do anything if we did get out of the airport because we would have to be back in an hour to make sure we get through security. At least we can get through the KC airport in like 30 minutes. I never get there more than an hour early. It’s a waste of time…and sleep.
We are going to spend a few days in a condo on the beach. I am excited for the Luau although Mom and Dad were not super impressed with the one they went to when they were there. Then we are going to travel to the other side of the island and stay on a macadamia nut farm. We have a helicopter ride planned so we can see the active volcano. Andrew and I are leaving earlier than his mom and sister. They are staying an entire week and we are leaving late on Friday night. Our flight leaves Kona at 9:35 pm and arrives in LA at 5:40 am. We have an hour and a half layover and then we fly to Chicago and get there at 1:15 pm. Our layover is a little under three hours and we arrive home at 5:25 pm on Saturday. We are four hours ahead of Hawaii here in MO/KS.
There is a quilt shop in Kona that I’m going to visit. It was recently featured in a quilting magazine. I’m not sure which one. Mom (or Aunt Cathy), will you please leave a comment with the name of the magazine? Thanks. Anyway, the quilt shop is called Quilt Passions and I am definitely going to buy some fabric from Hawaii.
Val came over last night to get a hand-sewing tutorial for the binding on the penguin quilt. I finished an iPad sleeve for Andrew’s mom. I need to make one more for the fair before I leave for Hawaii. I think it’s possible. The Mario quilt is still sitting and waiting for me. I’ll get to it once I get back from vacation.
