Kauai is magical and beautiful. We spent ten days at the Sheraton on Poipu beach, south shore. Andy snorkeled, zip lined and ate the best seafood ever. I loved almost daily trips to Lotus Bar and Blossoming Lotus, drinking Lava Flows and the waterfall jump! Eliot went on a train ride with his grammie and gramps, and Riley. We swam in pools and in the ocean. Eliot had a fast crush on an island girl named, Sky. Can you stand it? It is crazy beautiful and relaxing.

We had a birthday party for Cooper, our anniversary dinner and celebrated grammie's birthday too! We saw a sea turtle, big and small tropical fish swimming around our feet, chickens everywhere, and a monk seal came to swim with Summer and Mary! Watching Summer in the ocean gave me the courage to really go out far and swim in the ocean. It was exhilarating because I was a bit scared but I loved it. I stayed in that salty water until my eyes burned! A big wave even pushed me down the beach filling my bikini bottoms with sand!

We have great pictures to share. Here are some from my sis-in-law and Andy's cousin, Mary. More later!

yes, that is andy and ami jumping off a cliff.

Andy and I jumped off of a waterfall cliff 20 feet high!
