Man vs. Food Hawaii Style!!

'Mr. Sprinkles and Glitter' asked his phone where the top 10 places were to eat in Honolulu and we choose the first one that was still open. It was also on the show Man vs. Food, so we figured it had to be good right?! ;)
It wasn't too far from the airport, which was great because we were all starving! It was a really nice restaurant. David decided he was going to attempt the Man Vs. Food challenge- which was eating three HUGE pancakes with toppings. He picked the Elvis version of pancakes which had a peanut butter syrup and 3 banana's on top- no joke! The plate was so heavy I couldn't even lift it off the table!!

'Mr. Sprinkles and Glitter' and I both ordered regular regular sized, boring dishes off of the menu. But he Did say that his Ramen with Spam was the best evr! ;)
 He gave it great try but barely made it a third of the way through. It was a beast! I can't believe there's been people who have actually finished it before!! 
We hung out at the restaurant for a  little while and then drove around. We went up this HUGE, super steep hill through a neighborhood and the view at the top was awesome!

At this point, it was about 1:00am and we had nothing else to do. I was falling asleep, and they were both tired. We decided to go back to the airport and 'try' to sleep in the car. It was extremely difficult to get into a position where we could sleep because the car was so full of luggage. The entire trunk area and backseat were full-- and I was having to sit in the back seat holding 2 backpacks. And since the backseat was so full neither of the boys in front could recline.

I remember dozing off and 'Mr. Sprinkles and Glitter' saying he was getting out of the car to sleep on a nearby beach so he could lay down- we were totally those people at the airport. ;)

Eventually, the sun started coming up and we unloaded the car, returned the keys, and made our way back into the airport. We got checked in and tried to sleep a little more before our flight.

Back on a plane, I think I tried to watch a movie but just kept falling asleep. I felt like I blinked and they were telling us we were beginning our descent into LAX.

We arrived, got our luggage, met Jamie and Todd who arrived 2 minutes after we did, got our mini van rental car, and loaded the car again for the last time (!!) and started the 5 hour drive back to Phoenix.

We got to Jamie's house (where all our cars were) about 10pm and then had another hour drive home from there.

I was so happy to get home and not be in a car or plane! We took showers and passed out- it felt great to sleep in our bed again.
Someone was super excited to see us when we got back! :)
