{kauai pt. II - slide queen}

When in Kauai, the farmer's decided that they would like to take up paddle boarding.
While they went and showed up the locals, 
us ladies and the babes hung out on the beach.


Brody loved playing in the sand...


and watching the ocean.


While miss Kaye, really loved sleeping.
That ocean sound put her to sleep every time.
Karli and I did our best ocean interpretation for her in the car once when she was fussy.
I think it startled her more than anything,
and then she saw right through that hoax, called us impostors, and continued on. 


Since the boys got a day of paddle boarding in, the next day us ladies took a day to ourselves.
When we returned we were pleasantly surprised with some purchases they had made.
Don't they look like locals?


I particularly like that my farmer insisted on wearing this shirt almost daily.
He also, as you can see, quickly gave up on the paddle board, for his known domain of surfing.



This was our gorgeous view.
And that awesome pool/lazy river had a couple of fabulous slides.


My farmer had noticed one day a kid go down the slide time, after time, after time.
They called him the slide king.
Ryan asked him if he thought that he had gone down the slide 40 times.
The kid arrogantly thought he had.
SO, the next day while the weather was rainy, and we were the ONLY ones in the pool,
Ryan decided it was time to do the slide 40 times also.
He was the new, self proclaimed, slide king.

The next day however, while the boys were in the room while the babes napped,
Karli and I decided we had to beat the record.
And our pool entrances were epic. 




 We both went down the slides a total of 43 times. 
It might not sound that impressive, but I'd challenge you to beat my record.
Not to brag or anything, but I am currently the reigning slide queen.


Doesn't Brody look impressed!?




Brody even got to try the slide a couple of times.


And he LOVED it!


This kid kills me.
