When we moved to Kauai at the beginning of the year, we had a bunch of people say they would come visit us, but we haven't had too many people follow through. BUT, some of our close friends Dan and Brittany came to visit us a few weeks ago! We were counting down the days and when it finally got here, we had a great time! They got in late Friday night, so we had to cram a lot in to the rest of the weekend.
Dan wanted to surf, so we went to Waiohai on the South Shore so he and Kai could surf. We took them on the back roads got a quick pic overlooking Menehune Fish Pond. Of course, for whatever reason, this is the only pic for the day!
We also hit up Wailua Falls and jumped between the waterfalls! It was pretty crazy because when you get behind the waterfall, there is a TON of water coming down, and its kind of scary because you don't want to get held under the water when you jump! Britt was scared, but she still did it! Of course, I was just as scared as she was, but oddly enough, when someone else is scared, it is easier to be 'brave' :) Anyhow, we all decided it was well worth it!
To top off the night, we grilled up burgers at our house and then headed to Donkey's to have a bonfire (it may or may not have included smores). Of course, only here will you open a new bag of graham crackers and have them be not crunchy due to the humidity :)
By the time we actually got back to drop off the kayaks, it was totally dark, and Marks Place (our dinner plan), was closed...sooo, we decided on our backup plan. The Courtyard Marriott poolside bar :) As always, they didn't disappoint! Their Paniolo Burger (formerly called the Maui Burger) is the BEST and the firepit by the pool is as relaxing as it gets!
Anyhow, hopefully this gives some of our other friends motivation to come visit! :)
