Today we spent the day going around the entire island - so expect a bunch of scenery pics in this post - and because you know me well - there are a lot of food shots also. (No telling what I weigh by now - it's been nice to know you Weight Watchers!) (ha!)
We were up by 5 a.m. again this morning. Why is it that at home when the alarm goes off - I just want to sleep until 11 but on vacation I am wide awake at 5???? UGH! So we got up early and had a nice breakfast.
And then we were off for a helicopter ride!!! Scott has wanted to do this for years so I finally gave in since this might be our last chance for a long while. I hate flying so I was scared to death.
Here we are looking happy in the helicopter...................... before we both got TERRIBLE motion sickness. I had to hold a barf bag the whole time and spent half the time with my eyes shut, doing lamaze breathing (or what I think Lamaze breathing is like) and trying as hard as I could not to throw up. I was miserable.
I didn't know until we landed that Scott was as sick as I was. It was horrible. But the views (that I saw) were really beautiful. A lot of the island is impossible to see unless you go by Helicopter. We saw where they filmed Jurassic Park and a few other movies. Our pilot said he just finished flying Ben Stiller every day for 3 months while he filmed a movie in Kauai.
After we felt better .........we ate at a favorite from last trip - Brick Oven Pizza - SO YUM!!!!!!
It took us two hours to go up the mountain and back down so when we got down - we needed a treat. We stopped for ice cream. My hair is a mess in this picture because I had spent 2 hours in a jeep with the top off. So much for good hair! ha!
Aren't our desserts pretty? I had tahitian vanilla brulee and Scott had triple chocolate mousse.
Happy Mother's to everyone! Happy Mother's day especially to my mom and to Scott's mom. You are both so encouraging and loving to us. We are thankful to have such wonderful moms.
A Very special Happy Mother's Day tomorrow to so many of my friends and blog friends who are celebrating their very first mother's day - either with a brand new baby or a pregnant belly! I hope this first Mother's Day is wonderful!!!
And for each of you who are waiting to be moms - I will be spending a lot of time tomorrow lifting you up in prayer and I have no doubt that you will be celebrating Mother's Day soon!
