Hawaii

Now that my tan is fading and the late night cookie dough eating and shaved ice with snow caps from the trip has gone to my butt and gut, I decided it was time to post the pictures of our great Kauai trip. Here are some highlights and seriously can we say slideshow for me next time. I think I tried to post 100 pictures in this post, I just could just not choose my favorites!





Here is our clan minus Jacki. Lets just say that Jacki gave us a crazy 2 days. We were scared of her by the end of the 2nd day. She did get us surf lessons though kudos for that. However, at some point she decided to take us on a death hike from @!%*. I seriously would have paid to have someone fly me off of the mountain. When we got to the end of the trail I cried, tears of joy. That was the first and last hike that we contributed on the trip. The Thaynes are die hards, seriously. So while they were hiking in jungles (26 miles to be approximate the whole trip) and seeing sunsets at approxiamltey 4am in the morn, this is what we did. Kamille- I told you I would give you our side of the trip. I hope you enjoy. Love Ya!













We really did surf on the board!








































Our new tats...













Pauls feirce sting by a jelly fish! Ouch!





























Uh.. Steph is going to kill me for this one. In case you are wondering how to get your hair like this, you have to ride on a raft out in the ocean to the Napeli Coast. The salt water of buckets pouring over your head and the wind contribute to the pretty nest.




























Why did the Rooster cross the road? Roosters just roam all around the island, I think they are the state bird?













This is on our way back from the death hike, someone took this for us, he was telling us the whole time 'Okay, get back a little further, a little more...' do you think we are far away enough?














View from the death hike.
















And the bravery award goes to everyone but me and Kamille for jumping and falling (thanks to Ethan) into cliff jumps like these ones.





























We are fully convinced that they eat 'rooster' in Hawaii instead of chicken.










A view from our Condo...


We played in the sand, laughed tell we cried and watched the waves come in... it can't get any better than that. Thanks for the great times and memories friends. I am lucky to have you guys! Maloha! Love you guys! xoxo

I am so jealous! I have only been to Hawaii once and it was on a stinkin basketball trip and we couldn't really even do anything. Hope to go again someday. I am glad you had fun!

Okay so I'm not going to look at these anymore. I haven't made it to Hawaii yet. I will make it someday even if I have to walk. And swim. And probably die.
The pics are amazing!

so now I understand why you didn't end up driving to Oregon with me. I would have made the same choice. Live life with no regrets baby! Loved your pictures.

I love all your pics. I so need to get them. That one of us on the surf board turned out so good with your color enhancement. That waterfall is so cool too. Can't believe I missed that one. Thanks for all the laughs and good times and for being so brave. Love ya!!

Krishelle said...

Hey Candace! I was wondering if you still have your photography business. I clicked on the link, but it didn't work. Anyway, we desperately need a family picture. Let me know if you are still taking pics! Thanks!

Did Chanda send you the email with the Demitri the Stud messages? If not, I've got to send them to you. You will laugh so hard.

Laurie said...

Yea!!! I am so excited for you that you got to go to Hawaii! Looked like you had a great time. Good for you! I hope you and the Hayes man are doing well. We need to get the kiddos together again and let them play.
