Two weeks ago we headed to the beautiful island of Kauai!
It was such a fun trip.
We loved the nice warm weather...with the small warm rain showers.
We loved relaxing on the warm, sandy beaches.
We didn't really love getting carsick but we loved when the road came to an end.
We loved swimming with the fish and turtles.
We loved the gratitude devotionals we had each day!
We loved laughing...mostly at Derek.
We loved we didn't die when we got caught in a huge wave.
We (or Nate) loved his sun tan oil and getting a nice brown tan.
We loved being in nature and seeing the "Garden Island."
We loved the beautiful, green scenery.
We loved kayaking and hiking.
Most of all we loved being with family and creating memories!
We pretty much loved everything!!
