Pearl Harbor is the most visited tourist attraction on the island of Oahu. I have been there 3 times. Yes you read that correctly...3 times! I have valid reasons though.
I went with my husband in 2007 soon after we arrived on the island.
One of my friends came to visit in April 2008 and I went again.
My mom and sister visited January 2010 and I went yet AGAIN!!
Honestly, it didn't get old. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I am a huuuuuge history buff. I absolutely love learning about new things dealing with culture and history. I taught fifth grade history before we moved to the island, so when I found out that we were coming here it was on the top of my list of things to do.
It is a rare treasure, but somber. My heart was extremely heavy knowing that I was standing about hundreds of men entombed below me. It struck me even harder being that my husband is a soldier. If you ever come to this island please go see this memorial.
Hiya! I am Stephanie... I have been an army spouse for 7 years, and a teacher for 3 years. I am a SAHM to a 4 year old daughter who is infatuated with spongebob and anything "princessy" and an 8 month old daughter, who, in between teething and crawling has been a huge inspiration to my mommymeter. I am currently "recovering" from my husbands' latest Iraq deployment. This will be my little speck in the blogosphere to hopefully captivate and inspire some of you to stick around while I LOL, vent or whatever!
