Greetings from Hawaii!! We just returned from a week away in paradise...*sigh*. Wish we could have stayed longer but, as they say, all good things must come to an end. We had never been to Hawaii before so we decided on Kauai, which was a perfect fit...lots of green lush vegetation, waterfalls, ocean, and roosters??? Yes, roosters! Roosters that start crowing at random times, including 4 am! However, other favorites far outweighed the cock-a-doodle-dooing...including shave ice with macadamia nut ice cream on the bottom, banana frosties, lots of fresh ono and seafood, and Hawaiian hot dogs with mango relish!
Here is my dream home.. TURQUOISE!! ...right across the street from the ocean where we also saw baby sea turtles swimming in the surf.

My husband enjoyed lots of surfing while I was content to enjoy amazing scenery while running along the shore! Tag-team style, of course, since vacationing with a baby was definitely a change in boat tours, no ziplining, no 8-mile hikes back to a hidden waterfall... {not bad} just different.
Liam at the beach for the very first time. He LOVED it and he loved to eat the sand. Just when he'd have a fully coated hand is when he'd want to suck his thumb. Go figure! To be expected...

There was lots of color and beauty everywhere you looked! We definitely plan to return when Liam is a bit older and more self-sufficient. I even took a little time each night to make a mini book with journaling of our day's activities! Hopefully I will have some time to take pics today and post it later in the week. Mahalo {thanks} for stopping by...have a great weekend!
