"She blogs & she has 5 kids."
The other day I got reprimanded for not having posted in quiet some time.
I'll be better.
But for now, heres a little update from our Valentines Day/Presidents Day weekend. Brace yourself. Its a bit long.
And I know. It was several weeks ago.
Interisland flights went on sale for super cheap during Valentines Day/Presidents Day weekend. We decided that with it being our last year out here in Hawaii, we just couldn't pass up this chance to go to Kauai. We got a great deal on a rental car, as well as hotel, so we packed our bags and headed out for the weekend. It was beautiful and we had a great time! We definitely recommend it!
Feb. 14th. Happy Valentines Day!
Our first adventure...
Apparently, its where they shot the beginning of "Fantasy Island"
Then, the drive up to WAIMEA CANYON
The island in the distance is the last of the Hawaiian Islands, Ni'ihau.
"The Grand Canyon of the Pacific"
On to our next lookout point.
It was beautifully sunny all day, then the clouds & the cold moved in.
GLASS SAND BEACH
The "sand" was made up entirely of broken and smoothed glass.
"TUNNEL OF TREES"
We relaxed at a beach in the sun under this coconut tree until...
the rains with the double rainbow quickly moved in & spoiled our plans.
We decided to go to dinner at Dukes. It was delicious! And a great end to a Wonderful Valentines day.
National Wildlife Refuge & Lighthouse
Kauai has several beautiful old churchs.
On our way to SECRET BEACH
The NENE Bird...we saw at least 10 of them, but none of them 'ne-ned' at us. =(
(If you look closely, there are waterfalls on the mountain)
There they are.
Sunset at NA PALI COAST PARK.
This is what happens when you dont have a good grip..
Look at that face! hahah.
Feb. 16th. Presidents Day.
A beautiful sunny afternoon was quickly taken over by rain & clouds.
So we went to see this waterfall.
And then The BIGGEST chair we've ever seen!
With our flight leaving at 10:30pm, we spent the evening at the movies & hung out at the 'mall' (the only store open was Jamba Juice). We made it safely home early Tuesday morning just in time for Jason to get a few hours of sleep before his early morning shift at work.
Kauai was so beautiful. We're very grateful we were able to go over and spend the weekend there. Thanks Eric, Tish and fam for the Christmas money (airplane ride). There was just one thing we didn't get to do, hike the Na Pali Coast. Dont worry, we'll be back.
