I will never forget our trip to Hawaii. Patsy and my Mom got in trouble for keeping our group out to late. So after they talked to the head honcho. They came to our rooms and we had a meeting. They said we can't stay out that late again. Who wants to go to the beach at 5:00 am? They didn't say we could not leave our rooms by a certain time. We all did go to the beach at 5:00 the next morning. We had so much fun.
