The Last Days of Kaua’i

The days after the wedding were a blur for all of us at Anini House.  The adrenaline of the days leading up the wedding completely left us all spent.  We lazed around the house + here are some things I’ve learned about kids.

#1 – they really, really love television.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

#2 – they really love playing in hot tubs.  They’d be like, “Shelli!  Come play in the hot tub!!!!”  + I’d be like, “NO WAY!!!!!  The ocean’s better!!!!”  + they’d be like, “No it’s not!!!!!”  + I’d be like, “Yes it is!!!!!!” + they’d be like, “No it’s not!!!!”   We would have those type of conversations daily.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

#3 – I never realized how much they like Ichiban noodles.  They ate it cooked or they would munch on it dry!!!!  Keiko + Hana are so cute, it sounded they were calling it Itchy Bum noodles.  So that’s what we all called it during the trip.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We all made a couple of family trips to Hanalei Bay.  I don’t know why I didn’t take a picture of the actual beach.  Here’s lunch at Pat’s Taqueria taco truck with my swimming buddy, Ambur.  The kalua pork tacos were to die for!!!!  FYI, future Hawaii travelers, they close at 3pm.

After, we had shave ice at the truck next door.  It was ono!  That’s Hawaiian for good, y’all.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We had dinner that night with my mom + dad over.  The Canadian Lady Posse wanted me to highlight what typically happens during dinner prep.  Let me enlighten y’all.

Ladies toiling over a hot stove + slaving away.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oh look…..how interesting!!!!!!!  Here, we observe the male species in their natural habitat.  Beer AND snacks (provided by the ladies, of course!)  Must be nice, guys!!!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jeff, mom + mother Jean

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Okay, okay.  The guys helped a little bit, too.  They grilled, okay!!!!  Sheesh!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Look who’s first at the dinner table again!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jeff with his Moustache Gang!!!!  How freaking cute is that???!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The next day some of us went to Tunnels Beach.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s Jeff uptight in paradise.  Getting everyone out the door is like wrangling cats.  Daphne + I had to have a cocktail while waiting for everyone.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The current was pretty strong at Tunnels, so Deb + Liz took the kids back to Hanalei.  Jeff, Daphne, Tom + I went to take a hike on the Kalalau trail along the famous Napali coast.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is a steep uphill for 3/4 miles, y’all!!!  I cursed my short Japanese legs trying to keep up with the long ass legs of the Fayle family!!!  But every step of the way was so beautiful!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The descent led us to Hanakapia Beach.  This sign greeted us towards the bottom.  Yikes!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

River leading to the ocean.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I didn’t know there were Spider monkeys at the beach!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lava caves

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

AWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!  Jeff is such a romantic!!!!  This is what he was making in the lava cave in the picture above.  So sweet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The road back home.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bye for now everyone!!!!!  Sorry there’s so many gaps in the pictures, I still don’t have a hang on this software!!!!

    Hi Shelli! I know you have no CLUE who I am, but I am Cacey’s sister, Tina. The family member still in TN! Cacey was nice enough to share your blog with my mom, who passed it to me. I have been following for a week or so, and want to thank you for sharing all of this! My mom said you and I are more like sisters then me and Cacey, and I see it in your posts! Congrats to you and Jeff and if you guys ever make it to Nashville, feel free to pop in on your southern sis. Cant be my “brother from another mother”..maybe my “sister from another mister”? Okay…my mom laughed at it anyway! Have a wonderful, safe trip and congrats again on marrying such an obviously adoring guy!(and I am TOTALLY with you on the Hoarders vibe in the storage stuff! eek!) – Tina
