We did a little traveling and are back! I wish I could say that I'm refreshed and ready for Fall, but I'm actually feeling under-the-weather and achy. Boo! So while I take a little vacation from our vacation, here are a few scenic photos of our visit to Kauai--
kauai's mascot, the fighting chicken (kidding!); heart-shaped vine leaf
macadamia nut ; seed pod from the autograph tree
kayaks on the wailua river; heliconia on a private farm
dragon fruit, delish! ; somewhere between kapa'a and kilauea
kilauea light house, great place for bird-watching ; endangered nene, hawaiian goose at the kilauea national wildlife refuge
The kids start school the week after Labor Day. Love the boys, but it's been a looooong summer! I'm going to be busy until then... I still need to do a ton of paperwork, order uniforms, buy school supplies, etc. Ack! Anyhow I hope to be back with my blog-hat-on by mid-September. Have a great rest of the week!
