Hawaii with Elly and the Beckers

Right after my second eye surgery, Chris and Tiff approached me and suggested a trip to Hawaii when I had recovered. I (of course) found this to be an excellent idea, and promptly agreed. Then Elly and I started seeing each other, and after a bit of confusion over the dates of the trip, she agreed to accompany us!
