Hawaii {day 1,2,3}

Saturday evening, after a long travel day, we found our way to the north shore of Kauai Island. We have been planning this Hawaiian vacation for three years but with COVID and family health issues, there wasn’t a good time to make it work. As the kids get older, it is going to get harder and harder for everyone’s schedules to line up for a family trip. I’m so glad we made this one happen! Anyway, here are the quick details of the first few days our fun island getaway:)

Sunday- we woke up to rain and clouds. The weather wasn’t ideal for the beach so we headed out for a hike up the Okolehao Trail to the peak of Kauka’ opua. Thank goodness we wore our Chaco sandals because we were not prepared for the amount of mud on the mountain. By the time we finished, we were all covered in mud from our knees down! I only fell three times (once pulling Sam down with me) and slipped a few hundred times! Aside from the mud and steep inclines, we had so much fun and laughed a lot!

Monday- the morning started out with a down pour. Again, no bueno for a beach day. We headed to the south side of the island with hopes to find some sun. We stopped at Kauai Coffee for a quick tour and coffee sampling. We hit the Safeway and Walmart for groceries and started back toward the house on Hanalei Bay. On the way around the east side of the island, we found a sunny beach so we stopped. Scott, Alice, Paige, and Mason all jumped in the water. Sam went off in search of a run and I enjoyed my book on the beach.

Tuesday- Scott, Sam and I started our day with a beach run. The surf at our beach was too dangerous for swimming so we packed back into the car and headed back to the beach from the the previous day. We stopped to rent some boogie boards and enjoyed another day at the beach.

Just a couple more shots from the beginning of the week…
