Legos on the Brain

Our Lego-loving oldest child finally got his greatest wish ... Aunt Kelly asked to spend the day with him driving up to the Lego Store. And, of course, he had money burning holes in his pockets ...



He shopped until he dropped ... literally ... falling asleep on the way back home before they even left the mall parking lot ...

Ride Along



Bruno says, no, absolutely not, I'm not too big for the front seat of the Tahoe! Someone had to tag along on car line pickup for the twins so that he didn't growl out, terrify or try to eat the HVAC repairman who is currently working at the house!

Back to Busy Mondays



School first, then occupational therapy, then speech therapy, then pick Connor up from middle school, then race back across town for Connor's across game, grab some Raising Cane's chicken to eat on the way (for Connor) or in the back hatch (for the twins, who are messy and riding in Mommy's still relatively new car) ...

Last Day

Farewell, Poipu Beach ...



For our last day, we had to check out of the hotel early but had a really late flight, so we opted to book a sunset dinner cruise (back to Captain Andy's again, which we highly recommend).

In the winter, despite warm weather, I also highly recommend you wear jeans and a warm jacket. You  might feel silly while checking in at the marina, but you will appear very, very smart as soon as you leave the port ...



I'm already freezing, but it's a stunning view along the southern coast and the eastern coast of Kauai ...



We were on the Northern Star ...



Spouting Horn from the water ...



The blue, blue waters (which the photos don't do justice) ...



Our resort, the Grand Sheraton Kauai ...



Along the eastern coastline ...





Sailing back under wind power (so peaceful) ...



Nearing sunset from the bow ...



Sinking into the clouds ...



Nearly at the horizon ...



Going through the horizon ...



We loved both of our Captain Andy's tours. The raft offered the stunning views of the Na'Pali Coast that I recommend everyone see, either by boat or helicopter if you're not up for hiking the Kalalau Trail ... but this tour offered stunning views of the south and east coastlines, a smooth ride and a fabulous dinner with another great crew ...
