Kauai, Day 1

We made it! After coming in late last night we made it to our first day of fun. We started off the morning by heading up to Na'Aina Kai Botanical Gardens. They have a monthly Keiki Day (children's day) where the kids can play in the water and swing sets. You had a blast! You loved the slide, the swings, the chalk, the tree house, but really loved the fountain. When it comes to water you can usually pass it up just fine, but you loved getting into the fountain and playing. I hated to take you out, but nature had called to you in the middle of your playing and we had to change you.

Onto the Historic Kilauea Lighthouse. We made it there no problem and enjoyed seeing a monk seal off in the distance, a rain shower and some beautiful coastline. We stopped at North Shore Grindz for lunch, so good! I had a BBQ burger with an onion ring on it, was the best meal of the week. Next up Ke'e beach. A beautiful beach at the end of the road, literately at the end of the road.  So nice, pretty sand and calm seas. You even let Grandma take you into the water. You played a game with Daddy of dropping rocks and Daddy catching them in the water. You had such a fin time!

We stopped at two caves on the way out, a wet cave and a dry cave. You were not impressed, you kept yelling "no cave, no cave" as we were in them. Last stop for the day was Queen's Bath. The street's are not well identified in Hawaii, as lots of streets have no street signs or missing letters. After some hunting we found it headed down the trail. The trail is exciting and not for the faint of heart. Two waterfalls great you as you walk down. Nana had enough about half way down and turned back, Grandma came about 3/4 of the way and offered to stay with you while we went the rest of the way. It was worth it! I had a wonderful time swimming in the natural ocean pool and saw lots of little fish around the edges. Headed back to the hotel and had a wonderful roasted chicken for dinner. Another full day tomorrow!

  1. Nana and I had fun with you in the back seat of the car. You made up some new games. One was scary pig. You say "Oink Oink" in a monster voice and we had to act scared. The is also scary duck, "Quack Quack" and baby dragon. Your favorite was to blow at us and we fell back and said "Whoa."
