Day 6 Oahu

The first thing we did when we landed in Honolulu was go to the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor. It was very beautiful yet very sad. It was hard to stay sad when all of the kids were running around screaming and they limit your stay on the memorial to 4.5 minutes. Afterwards we headed off to Waikiki Beach to find our hotel and have some fun in the sun. Eventually the Roberts of Hawaii bus picked us up to take us to a luau at Paradise Cove. (I swear those green and yellow buses were everywhere!) The luau was really great and a lot of fun. I'm sure there is some level of cheesiness in going to a luau where people are probably paid minimum wage to exploit their own culture, but hey, I paid a pretty penny, it was a lot of fun and I truly believe you need to see one if you go to Hawaii. If only for the "cheese"!!
