Weekend in Paradise

We finally went on a much needed vacation/anniversary celebration. Just the two us :) We took a couple days off work and flew to Kauai, Hawaii for a long weekend. It was PERFECT!! It was so nice to get away and just relax. Once we got home life sped back up and that is why I'm just now posting about our trip (sorry). Here are our beautiful pictures.....

I'm about to fly over the ocean for the first time in my LIFE....but not the last.
Flying over the big island
Arriving to one of the most beautiful places on earth.
Wailua Falls
Kipu falls was our FAVORITE place. We had so much fun here, cliff jumping and rope swinging. It was kind of a hidden little local spot.

Greg rope swinging, I love this video :) He is so cute.
Kayaking on Wailua River, you are doing such a good job paddling sweetie keep it up ;)
Here is the river from a lookout point
The hike to Secret Falls....so muddy.
Secret Falls

That water was FREEZING!
After our kayaking trip we headed to the west coast for some AMAZING shaved ice. I crave it all the time now.

Queens Bath, my second favorite location

Waimea Canyon..." The Grand Canyon of the Pacific"

Kalalau Valley... the largest valley on Na Pali Coast. Na Pali Coast beaches are only reachable by boat or an 11 mile hike. We wanted so bad to go, but not enough time....next time :)
On our last day we went to the North shore and went snorkeling at Tunnels beach, we saw a seal :), no turtles :( and lots of fish and we played in the ocean (pictures are on our water camera). Afterwards we headed to Anini beach and ended up getting stuck there because the powerlines fell in the middle of the road...
A couple invited us into their beach house while we were waiting to get through the road. It was so pretty. The side of the house facing the beach was all glass! Hawaii was amazing I couldn't have asked for more and to be able to spend time with my hubby just made it even more amazing.
