this was the first time i had been to hawaii.  although we didn't have time to see the other islands, oahu was gorgeous.  there were rainbows, beaches and pearl harbor was especially moving.  we also toured the USS Missouri - this ship has an amazing history and its last mission was the first Gulf War and even though the control room looked like it was from 1950, this ship was outfitted with tomahawk missiles.  truly unreal!
