Aloha Islands

I wasn't the only family member who got a souvenir from my sister's visit to the 50th state! My dad is pictured wearing a quintessential "Hawaiian shirt"--also known as an "aloha shirt"--and reading The Lost World on his tablet. In my father's honor (and in honor of the fact that I didn't change out of my pajamas today) here are some tropical tops:

I love my dad so much. Anyway, that's it for the shirts. But here are a few more things that I came across while web-surfing:

  4. That's a great picture of your dad! It's really neat that he let you take a picture of him. My mom is very much a "NO PICTURES" kind of person, haha.
    I've yet to go to Hawaii. It looks like a pleasant place to visit. :)
