The past week has been spent in beautiful Kauai, Hawaii.  Sorry for not blogging while we were gone but the fear of burglars kept me from it.  This is the first of a couple posts about our vacation that I'll do. It's too much to fit in just one and i have to share about running and hiking adventures.

Jeremy and I, along with his parents, Jordan his brother, Anna our sister in law, and our 3 year old niece and 9 month old nephew flew out last Tuesday. The kids did great on the 9 hour flight there.


keeping Andrew entertained on the plane

We all had a great time! Jeremy and Jordan ran 5 days while Anna and I ran with them 3 of the days.  Anna is on week 6 of couch to 5K and is doing great!  It was nice so many runners on vacation to get a workout in.  There was an awesome park and running path by our resort that even had some equipment set up for pull ups, crunches, etc.

my first attempt at a pull up.  i think jeremy is lifting more than i am

Jeremy was much more successful than I was

Wednesday we went to the beach and got to snorkle a bit. 

Thursday Jeremy and I went on a hike just the two of us. There will be a separate post with details from this hike because it was quite an experience.  I will say that this was the most sore vacation I have ever been on....

Friday morning Jeremy and I went on a whale watching tour up the Na Pali coast.  We saw whales, sea turtles and spinner dolphins.  That night we went to a luau.

On Saturday Jeremy, Jordan, Anna and I went ziplining. It was a first for all of us! It was so much fun! 

the last one for the day was named "King Kong"
Sunday was a lazy day. We ran in the morning, took a nap, went to a lighthouse, then drove to the beach to watch the sunset. 

Monday we drove up Waimea Canyon also known as the Grand Canyon of the pacific. Then went to Spouting Horn, which was like Old Faithful but with ocean water.

Tuesday it was time to come home and we were sad to be leaving the island. 
we barely made the 50 lb limit!
