No. 12 is good and done! (27 before 28 list)

Well, we traveled to another island.

My mom and dad came to town and just when we thought it couldn't get any more fun they took us to Kaua'i!

I had never been before and Thomas hadn't been since he was like 14. WE LOVED IT! That probably goes without saying.

It felt nice to get away from it all for four days and three nights of lush green countryside goodness.

Thomas turned 32 on Kaua'i and we stayed at the Marriott Vacation Club resort TJR_1134

TJR_1144 and swam, saw Waimea Canyon TJR_1206

, and my mom paid for everyone to go on a TJR_1185 booze cruise!

She is probably shaking her head at that last part. She didn't know it would be all about booze, and it really wasn't for us anyway, it was all about whales and TJR_1177 more whales and fulfilling my life-long dream of sailing out in the deep blue sea.

Now I just miss my parents. A lot. They are fun, and good, and wonderful. Thanks so much for coming and spoiling us like you do and just doing my heart good. We love you!
