Thirteen Awesome Pics from my trip to Hawaii

Morning!  I know I haven't posted much personal stuff since I returned from my trip, but unfortunately, school/work started back up as soon as I returned, and I've been backed up on book cover orders (still am).  Regardless, I've cut out a slice of time to share thirteen ( 4) awesome pics from my trip to Kauai:

The one and only female Monk Seal near Kauai.  Monk Seals are nearing extinction, but the wonderful news was that this lady seal was pregnant - and hanging out in the cove below our balcony.

My family unit.  :D

The sunset from the Sunset Cruise I took with  my husband, bro-in-law and his wife.

My little monkey learning how to jump over waves with her auntie.

My In-Laws renewing their vows for their 50th wedding anniversary, with my little monkey hanging out close by.  

Little Man and me, snuggling noses.  You know you love my awesome farmer's tan.  :D

Daddy and Little Man walking on the beach.  

De facto SIL and I at the coffee plantation.

Little Man plus family saying hi to me while I'm up on my second floor balcony.

The cove below that balcony, filled with sea turtles.  

The mouth of the cove, where DH and I would swim out to in order to scuba dive.

Little Man smiling at mommy after a day at the beach.

DH and I after the wedding ceremony.

Awesome blue and orange birds of paradise.

Pic of SIL and I on our sunset cruise - I'm soaking wet.  Somehow, I was the only one on the entire cruise who got hit by a wave.  That's okay, though, I'm tipsy enough that I don't care.

The wild hogs on our plantation train tour.  The kids got to feed them lots and lots of stale bagels and they loved it!

And this picture is just hilarious.  We went to a restaurant on our last night there, and they had coloring books and a Mr. Potato Head for the kids.  My son took of Spud's glasses, put them on his face (upside down) and wore them like this for the entire two hours we were there.  Everyone around us just thought it was the greatest thing.


  1. Looks like a wonderful time. Cool you got to swim right out to the ocean. With the sea turtles I assume?
    I bet my farmer's tan beats yours...

  2. Looks like you had tons of fun! So cool!

  3. Little Man stole this show. Walking with his father and smiling at you are my faves. Glad you had fun.

  4. Looks like a wonderful trip! And your little guy in the glasses is just too cute.
    I've never heard of monk seals but how cool!

  5. Gorgeous pictures Jaycee!! Just love them. You look like you had an amazing time. Thanks so much for sharing.
