Kauai Day Three

Today has just been a wonderful day of R&R!!!! We decided just to spend the day at our hotel just relaxing and it was so great. The weather was perfect. We ate an early breakfast and were the first ones on the beach. We spent a while taking pictures around the beach because the lighting was so pretty early in the morning.

Here I am as soon as we got our seats staked out!
I'm such a poser. ha!
Doesn't Scott look so cool?

The BEST part of my day - I looked up and there was a beautiful rainbow next to the mountains! I loved this!!! God sends us rainbows as a symbol of His promise to us. And seeing this on Mother's Day was just the message I needed from God. Is He awesome or what? I wanted you to all see this to remind you that God is faithful to fulfill what He promises to us!

Our beach
Tonight we drove to the South side of the Island to eat at the Beach House. This is a very popular restaurant and we soon found out why. The setting is beautiful and it's an open air restaurant and we got to witness the most beautiful sunset while we ate. Everyone kept getting up and going outside to take pictures during their meals. The food was delicious but I decided not to post meal pictures this time.
Our waiter took our picture at sunset. I have some lovely tan lines.
I will show your our desserts - you didn't think we would skip that, did you? The back cake is chocolate and coconut and it was SO good. The front was a chocolate molten lava cake.

This was one of the best days I've had in years. I wish you were all here with us!

These daily updates make me feel like I'm on vacation too! I love it! And of course, it's fun to see which dres you've chosen for the evening! This coral one is very cute too! I love the rainbow God gave you...why do you think He woke you up early and got you on that beach??? He is just waiting to show you and delight you with His faithfulness. I'm so glad you didn't miss it yesterday!

Take the rainbow as a Mother's Day gift from God, Kelly. He does keep His promises and fulfills the desires of our hearts. So glad He is whispering to your heart!

Jenna said...

I loved this update!!! A day of R&R sounds perfect.

And the rainbow pictures made me cry! God is just amazing. The pic with you with the rainbow behind you needs to be framed--you look beautiful and the meaning behind it is so powerful! LOVE it.

Let the fun continue!!!!

The Garners said...

What a perfect day! You have on another CUTE dress! That rainbow is such a pretty picture and perfect reminder of God's faithfulness. I'm glad He blessed you with seeing that on Mother's Day. I prayed for you on my way to Conway yesterday...I prayed for your future family and that you would have a peaceful M-Day in the midst of your waiting. I believe that next year you will be celebrating the holiday in a whole new way! The water in those first few pictures looks crystal clear for miles--that is such a beautiful place.

May the Lord bless you and Keep you and may His face shine on you and be gracious to you and give you peace.. your sister in Christ, Robin(Caroline's MOM)

Just recently found your blog, and I know this post is old, but I wanted to comment anyway! I should be working, but I'm reading your blog instead (yes, all of it! tehehe). Anyway, love this post- it's so fun to see "famous people." So, my encounters with the glamorous life (or not so glam probably) include Chris Noth (saw him on our honeymoon), and Chuck Norris (at a cafe in New Mexico)- at least in my normal life. I work on capitol hill, so we see some famous people here sometimes too - Richard Simmons and Isaiah Washington are the two I can think of off hand. So, I have wanted to comment on other posts too, but couldnt work up the nerve! But, I still have a few months to read! Oh, and I have been sitting here crying at my desk reading your posts about your infertility journey. My office is wondering whats going on with me.
