Home Sweet Home

After 12 hours of flying, we are home! We were greeted at the airport by our very excited kids, balloons in hand and big huge smiles on their cute little faces. What a great homecoming. It turned out to be a wonderfully relaxing vacation. Very low key, a whole lot of sitting on the beach with fruity drinks in hand. What a life!

Eric dances like a white boy, but made for some great entertainment.

The helicopter took us right up to these enormous waterfalls. Amazing!

What a beautiful island. My pictures don't do it justice.

Our home away from home. What a great resort. Very quiet. I think we were one of maybe five couples who weren't over the age of 50. It was very much out style. We aren't big on crowds so the quaintness of the island was perfect for us.

We did venture out a bit. We did a helicopter tour of the island. One word, WOW. What beauty, they island was just breathtaking. The pilot took us to every nook and cranny of the island, explained some history and the whole time he was playing this really relaxing Hawaiian music. The while experience was so surreal.

Another night we went a traditional luau. That was a lot of fun. Eric was picked to go up on stage and dance the hula with all the pretty little island girls. He enjoyed that. I enjoyed laughing at him.

We spent a few days just driving around the island checking things out, did a little snorkeling, walked the beaches. It was great! On our flight over we ran into a couple from Wenatchee. It ended up that they were on the same flights, going to the same island and even staying at the same resort. It was so much fun having another couple to hang out with.

I'm drooling!!! Glad you had a good time. I think your parents were really tired by the end of it. Good thing you came back relaxed. :) Beatiful pics. Would have LOVED to see Eric dancing. It looked hilarious!
