Ladies? Strike a pose!!
And... We're OFF!
Hande caught a fish but by the time we reeled it in the sharks had eaten everything off the line except for its teeth still caught around the lure!
This is where the fishing is the best!
Pull the lures through the bird pile and we're sure to catch something!!
I love this splashy action shot! Cheryle and Jen are pros.
Sometimes we come upon dolphin pods... hundreds of dolphins.
But not so great for fishing since they are hungry too and have the home court advantage!
A water proof camera is great...
just stick it in the water to see what's going on down there.
This was a little guy we caught
The cleaning station...
Here's a MAGICAL little tuna tale....
This little fella started out small.....
He came to life and started growing while in Barb's hands!
Then he tried to eat her head!
We got a hold of him for another picture....

Dane Bishop (Jarem's friend) came with us and we had a great time together. We packed exciting adventures into every day - everything was extraordinary and my co-travelers are adorable! Everything and everyone were so ridiculously photogenic that I took a bajillion pictures, it was difficult to choose which ones to leave out of the blog.
Jarem, Dane, and I flew to Honolulu where we met Rich at 2:30am. We all arrived in Kaua'i together at 7:00am. Talk about a long day... and night... and day! The up-side was watching the glorious sunrise over Hawaiian waters from the plane. Nice!
Our first adventure while visiting Kaua'i was an airplane tour...
The plane had bubble windows so we could see all around and headphones with mouth pieces so we could talk to eachother during our flight.
We flew all around Kaua'i, the Garden State. Waimea Canyon and the Napali Coast were the my favorite sights.
The airplane tour was amazing but photos don't do it justice so I'm not posting many of them.
Next - NaPali Kona Forest Reserve Pihea trail...
The trail started out easy but turned gnarly pretty quick.
Mysterious fog wafted around us like a blanket
We finished off the day at Barking Sands Beach...
The waves were perfect for boogie-boarding. We were in the water for hours.
Kahalahala Beach at Lumaha'i on the north side of the island
Mostly Rich and I just had fun watching the boys play...
We stopped at every view area we could during our trip...
Shipwreck Beach - big waves and a nice big cliff too
Hiking on the The Kalalau Trail along the Napali Coast
First things first - Jarem revved up his go-ped and Dane rode a motorcycle for the first time.
800 vertical feet later, under the blazing July sun, Jarem and Dane still had enough energy to run around the sand bowl belly button
White water rafting down the Snake River...
Parent's summer house near Flaming Gorge Reservoir - we certainly felt like VIP at the cabin and while staying at their house in Ogden
2 weeks in Utah went by way too fast. We were sad to say our good-byes and head to the airport for another really long trip back to Honolulu. As always, as soon as we arrived in Honolulu we started running into people from Kwajalein.
