Evelyn's nanny, Amber, LOVES giraffes - so when we saw this statue, we had to get Evelyn's picture with it for her.
The zoo was pretty small, but really pretty good. Definitely worth the $35! After the zoo, we went back to the hotel for a morning nap, then had lunch at Cheeseburger in Paradise. After lunch, we headed to the Waikiki Aquarium. It, too, was small - but that was good because Evelyn was getting pretty sleepy and ready for her afternoon nap.
This was a tube filled with jellyfish - Evelyn loved them!
We had planned to go to a place called Nico's on Pier 38 for dinner (another yummy suggestion from the Jumer List). It was a delicious seafood place - I had a grilled swordfish with a sweet thai curry sauce that was amazing. Yes, we ate well on this trip....thanks to Jumer!
After dinner, Dan took one for the team and played Daddy Day Care so that I could meet up with some of my friends from Purdue. Two of them, Travis & Bree, had gotten engaged on the top of Diamond Head (ironic, huh?) earlier in the day - and he had rented a limo to take them to dinner. He had the limo rented for 3 hours, so he arranged for us to all be picked up (including getting one friend at the airport!) so that we could be in the limo when they came back from dinner - all a surprise to Bree! It was so much fun - and awesome to get to celebrate this special night with them! Here we are in the limo with our Nico's to go cups filled with champagne to celebrate (they forgot to get cups, and they picked me up from dinner with Dan and Evelyn, so I was in charge of cups...but not ice).
Congratulations Travis & Bree!!

This picture doesn't do it justice - but it was taken with my phone, so...
