Quest of the Quartet

Our weekends here in Laie are numbered, as in we only have 3 left. I have absolutely no idea where the time has gone! We are now working extra hard to get in all the things we want to do. On Friday we decided to have a girls night. We drove to Kaneohe mall for a little shopping, I ended up doing a lot more spending than I intended too, but everything I left with was needed and really cute! We went to Ruby Tuesday for dinner, I had never been there before so it was nice to try something new-it was delicious. I was so excited because they had a salad bar that was exactly like Cowboy Grub's, it made my entire night. Plus it was diet coke Friday which made everything better-funny how it really is the little things that can make us so happy. We then went to the movie She's Out Of My League, I was very surprised that I laughed as much as I did, it was pretty cute.
On Saturday a huge group of boy's went and rented scooters to drive around the island. Well, we weren't just going to sit around while they had all the fun.We woke up early and headed to the Dole Pineapple Plantation. We went on a cute little train ride around the pineapple fields and learned the history of the pineapple and James Dole.
We then got our sacked lunches to eat and finished it off with delicious pineapple ice cream. But, that was only the beginning of our adventure. We got back in the car and decided we were just going to drive and see where we end up. Well, we passed through some cute little towns and then before we knew it we were at the Honolulu Jail. Now this isn't your typical jail just off the road, we actually had to drive about 5 minutes on a long, winding road through the woods before we even got to the entrance. When we finally reached the gate we still couldn't even see the actual jail so we turned around and headed back to the main road.
We figured that this was going to be a road that lead us back to the ocean but it ended up being a dead end that ended with a cemetery. Since the road led to two options-a jail or cemetery, Jess named it the road of doom. After that adventure, we decided to start heading back north. We ended up in a town called Wailia and found a secluded beach. We pulled out our towels and were excited to lay in the sun, but that lasted about an hour before the clouds came. We stayed for another hour anyways and then began our journey home. In this cute little town all the mail boxes were painted and decorated.
Lohren just got a new camera so she decided she wanted a picture collection of these mail boxes. It was pretty funny to drive around and pull right up to people's houses snapping pics, especially when people saw what we were doing luckily, they just chuckled and waved.
When we finally arrived back at campus we got showered and were planning on going to see the Princess and the Frog that was being show on campus. Well, we thought it started at 7:30 but it started at 7, so we went to Jess and Kelsey's room, curled up and turned on Beauty and the Beast. I hadn't seen that show in forever, it is one of my favorite disney movies. Fortunately, they showed Princess and the Frog again at 9:30, I hadn't seen it yet, and I absolutely adored every minute. It is definitely up there on my favorite's list.
