We’re not gonna sit here and pretend to know the entire history of Hawaii. It seriously gives us a headache reading through all the back and forth. But we do know this: at some point in 1898, they were formally annexed to the United States. And every year on the third Friday in August, we celebrate Hawaii’s admission to the union even though it didn’t become a state until August 21st, 1959. To celebrate “the newest state”, we’ve annexed this photo gallery of gorgeous Hawaiian chicks‘ hot beach bums that is guaranteed to get you lei’d at the next luau. Check it out below.
