Spring Break in Kauai!

Davis County School District gave the kids an extra long spring break this year. Unfortunately, BYU and John's work didn't get any time off so Grayson and I headed to Kauai by ourselves. I also wanted to spend some one on one time with him since time is drawing short with this 17-1/2 year old...

We spent half of our week at the Sheraton on the south side in Poipu where we enjoyed sunny beaches, hiking the Canyon Trail to Waipo'o Falls and ziplining.

We enjoyed our first puka dogs with pineapple and coconut relish and spicy jalapeno sauce!

I enjoyed an early morning run from our hotel to the Spouting Horn, however got on a wrong road heading back and ended up running 10 miles instead of 5!

We spent the other half of our trip at Hanalei Bay Resort in Princeville so we stopped at the Wailua River on our way to the north side and kayaked 4 miles and hiked 2 miles to Secret Falls.

We also hiked from Ke'e Beach on the Kalalau Trail to Hanakapi'ai Beach on the Napali Coast, ate lots of good food, dodged hundreds of chickens and roosters and finished our last day on stand up paddle boards at Kalapaki Beach, finishing up with a piece of Hula Pie from Duke's!
