in no particular order!
I am sitting in the San Francisco airport, waiting out a delay in our connecting flight to Spokane. There are too many distractions to attempt working, so I thought I’d attempt posting to my blog. I’m beginning to realize the work that is waiting for me, so this may be the only blog post I get for a few more days.
We woke up to a beautiful ocean view, the sounds of LOTS of birds and the wonderful scent of tropical flowers — this is truly paradise!
Hiking to Akaka Falls.
Our very “uncommon” Common Myna bird.
Happy Taft, who took very well to the ocean, eventually tried snorkeling and saw a giant sea turtle after 3 minutes and played in the sand for hours and hours!
Boogie boarding and getting shots like this one. Way to go Diane and Abbey!
Visiting the Kona Temple with my family.
Amazingly vibrant sunsets.
These two high school friends, who are the reason we have wonderful vacationing companions in the Smith family.
Our little hula dancer, that we purchased in Spokane and placed on the dash of our rentalad van.
Addie, on the black sand beach — gorgeous!
Look closer — can you find the flip flops?
Chase, who can now cross scuba diving off his “someday” list.
Clark, who really is a special blend of wonderful son, big brother and extreme vacationer!
My sweetheart, who’s hard work made this dream vacation a reality. Thank YOU!
Trey, who does it all with absolute ease!
Team Julian — for making this vacation the BEST we’ve ever taken!
