Kauai

We are in beautiful Kauai for our anniversary. Thanks to Melissa's mom who is watching our three little girls for us. We have been doing a LOT of hiking, snorkeling, boogie-boarding, sight-seeing, eating, and relaxing. Every time Melissa sees a little child she gets weepy for a minute or two and we miss our girls but we really are having a blast with each other! It is absolutely beautiful here!
This is our fun rental Jeep! We have had some fun 4 wheeling in it!

Na' Pali coast - View from the top of the mountain.
View from our back door. You can't really see but the whole open space through the trees is ocean. It's really fun to eat breakfast out there!
Jane, is that you???
We hiked for 5 hours to see this waterfall. Our guide book referred to this hike as the Indiana Jones hike. We got lost in the jungle several times. The trail was extremely hard to follow. Finally for the last couple of miles we just gave up and hiked with our water shoes up the stream since we knew that it would lead us to the waterfall. It was well worth the leg gouge that went all the way to Heston's shin bone that he got from slipping on a rock while we were crossing the stream. We didn't see another person the entire time that we were hiking. It was so nice to have some romantically, peaceful time alone on our anniversary. (if you call sweating, getting lost, getting your leg gouged, getting mosquito bites all over, and walking through spider webs with the freakiest looking spikey spiders you've ever seen romantic)
Some of the hike was through all of this thick bamboo. It was so cool!
