For our ten year anniversary, hubby and I went WITHOUT kids to Hawaii. I know--blessed!
We are very blessed to have both sets of parents nearby, so the kids were well loved and well watched.
Ryan and I decided to return to Kauai since we went there on our honeymoon ten years ago, but we decided to try a new island too--the Big Island.
If you haven't been to Hawaii, I highly recommend it. Maui is still my favorite island, but Kauai is a VERY close second. I enjoyed the Big Island too, but we have many memories and sentimental reasons to prefer Maui and Kauai.
Here are some of the pictures to wrap up our trip. Enjoy!
The beautiful Hyatt grounds in Poipu, Kauai
The LOBBY of the Hyatt
The Na Pali Coast in Kauai (from helicopter)
Waterfalls on Kauai
Kauai is COVERED with wild chickens. No joke. The Big Island had wild cats everywhere.
Hiking on the north side of the Big Island
A room view from the Hilton where we stayed on the Big Island
Shave Ice (In Hawaii they say "shave ice" not "shaved ice," and the ice IS differently shaved than our mainland "snowcones"). I love it stuffed with ice cream and covered in sweetened, condensed milk.
Sunset dinners are awesome in Hawaii. This was the last one of our visit. We saw whale after whale in the ocean.
It rained on us--quite a lot. It was their winter. Here we are on the Big Island visiting another gorgeous waterfall.
Being silly in Kona. Did I mention the yuminess of a shave ice?
