We had a great trip to Kauai. Kyle's parents came to watch the girls and we met my parents and four of my siblings. This is a picture of Kyle on the Zodiac along the Na'pali coast. He looks relaxed but the ride was anything but relaxing as they had to hang on for dear life (pregos weren't allowed to go so I just heard stories).

On their boat trip they were taken into caves along the coast. This is inside one of them. They also got out and hiked to an ancient Hawaiian village and went snorkeling.

We rented Kayaks and went up the Wailua River. Notice how my shirt is dry in this picture. It did not remain that way as a few minutes later, after watching my brother and sister in law get flipped in rapids, Kyle decided that we should try. We actually did worse as after we flipped I was trapped under the Kayak for a few seconds. Funny story now, but scary then.

After we recovered from flipping we relaxed on these rocks and jumped off a rope swing into a pool of water below.

Kyle and me at the Fern Grotto. There are alot of other great pictures but I am having trouble accessing them for some reason. This will have to do for now and then I will post more when I solve the problem.
