Well, despite being there for two full weeks, our trip to Kauai seemed to fly by, especially by the end of the trip. We made it home safely to Alabama yesterday morning, and are settling back into our day-to-day life. SIGH.
Post-vacation depression is a real thing, right?
It was a great trip. Here are some final photos of how we wrapped the week up.
We took a hike with my parents one afternoon to Sleeping Giant– a tough hike that was all uphill for the first half. Lila hiked the whole way up and down, and did awesome– I was impressed!
We also went out on a boat tour, which was so much fun. We saw dolphins and sea turtles, and stopped to snorkel. If I had to choose between this and the helicopter tour, I’d definitely choose the helicopter. BUT, the boat tour was great too, and the kids had fun and loved seeing the dolphins.
Beyond that…we just had fun! We visited the pool a few more times, went to the beach, went out for a nice dinner at The Beach House (so good!), explored the town of Hanapepe…just had a great time!
I will admit, I am happy to be home– including our Seattle trip, we were gone for three full weeks. We missed the dogs and Tenny! But, what a wonderful vacation this was– I’m so grateful that we had the chance to explore such a cool place and spend so much time with family. Lila really misses her cousins from both sides of the family when we’re home in Alabama, so to be able to spend three full weeks all around family was a special treat, especially for her. I’m not sure when we’ll get back to Hawaii (that trip back– yikes!), but I hope to, someday. It is so beautiful.
And now…we only have three weeks until school starts again. How is that possible?!? Eek!
