Hawaii.....at last!!





ALOHA!! Most of our day was spent between airports in New Orleans, Houston, Honolulu, and finally our destination Lihue, Kauai!! (Thanks Mom & Dad for baking cookies, "babysitting" Odie, taking Betsy to jail, and for the mad dash to the airport! We love you!) The airport pics here were in Honolulu (Oahu) when we got our first glimpse of the palm tree paradise! We landed there in time to actually get to SEE the beautiful sites at sunset, snapping a quick shot to prove we made it :D and RUNNING to our connecting flight! NOW THAT WAS FUN with the 'Ginnypacking' result of two not-so-small suitcases, HUGE boogieboards, and three not-so-light carry-ons! *ROFL* Everyone who has EVER been camping with me KNOWS I don't pack light but I'm ALWAYS prepared for almost ANYTHING!! Just so you know I DID lighten my packing from the last trip we took to Hawaii by 2 suitcases!! The first step is ADMITTING that you have a problem... We got to watch the sun slip under the horizon of the Pacific ocean out the window of our flight to Kauai....drinking guava juice!! Once we arrived, the DARK adventure began of finding the quaint and hidden Kauai Country Inn!! First impressions of Kauai (that we literally could NOT see other than the road in front of us) surround the steady rain, clean air, wonderful breeze, and QUIET...

What a great quilt! There is a strong tradition of Hawaiian quiltmaking, inspired by the early Christian missionaries, and that is a nice example on the bed. Enjoy your trip!!
