Welcome to Hawaii week with tutorials and posts all about my favorite place in the world!!!
About two months ago, we took the kids to Kauai. This small island holds a special place in our hearts as it's our third year in a row going there and it now feels very much like visiting an old friend. (a 6 million year old friend!)
I love how connected the kids feel to the island (there were copious amounts of tears on the way to the airport to return home).
And when we're there, the kids look like this most of the day, which cracks us up! He looks like some sort of exotic sea monster.
Kauai is the oldest of the main Hawaiian islands (as in 6 million years old) and the most unadulterated. Its pristine landscape has been used in many films including Jurassic Park and Pirates of the Caribbean to name a few.
We always stay in Poi’pu, which is on the south side of the island as it houses a multitude of kid friendly beaches and lagoons. But this year we ventured north to Princeville to visit friends and I have to say, it was spectacular! Cliffside beaches and gorgeous mountains!
Here's just a few snapshots from our trip....the landscape, flora, brothers, lagoon and swarthy husband......
As you might recall, last year's Hawaiian debacle where my husband has his appendix out on our first day of vacation. This year was much less eventful (thank god!) and we spent most of our time in the water.
Here's a lovely photo of the flat frog that met its fate in our driveway. (FYI we did not kill it - it was there when we checked in and looked like it had been there for weeks.) The boys examined it every day....kind of like a pressed flower, but in frog form. Okay, kinda gross, but also oddly fascinating?
No more dead animals. I promise. Hawaii week, 2012.....there will be food and pog and sari's and more! For now....aloha!
