One of my father-in-law’s most notorious traits is his sun worshiping – as evidenced by his year round tan. If the sun is peaking through Seattle’s overcast skies, he’s soaking it in. While this might be one of his most initially apparent attributes, his greatest is his sentimental love of family. So there was no better way to spend his 70th birthday than for seventeen of us to enjoy his favorite family vacation spot (where they’ve frequented since my husband was 9 months old).  The laid back aloha and gorgeous sunsets haven’t changed over the years, making this our family’s gem full of great memories. Among our large crew, there’s always an anniversary, birthday or reason to celebrate which is a great thing as I’m ready for the next Sunset fete…
