Day #3 (Tuesday, March 6, 2012): Hilo, Hawaii
We woke up on Tuesday to find ourselves docked at the beautiful island of Hawaii. We spent the day in Hilo doing a million things (okay, maybe not a million, but a lot!)
  • visiting a black sand beach
  • visiting some beautiful Japanese Gardens (Liliuokalani Gardens)
  • visiting and taking a short hike up by some beautiful falls (Rainbow Falls)
  • visiting the volcano (Mt. Kialuea) 
  • visiting and walking through the lava tubes
  • visiting "The Big Island Candies" (and of course buying lots of yummy treats
Dawson and I loved every minute of this day!

Here we are on the bus, headed out for our big day in Hilo, Hawaii:

Day #4 (Wednesday, March 7, 2012): Kona, Hawaii

While we slept during the night, our magical ship transported us to the other side of the island of Hawaii, to Kona.  It was beautiful there. Dawson and I spent the day lazing around by the pool and the beach.  It was a great day to recharge and get ready for the next day.  Stay tuned for that.  We were on Kauai and it was by far the most adventurous and most fun day of our trip. Dawson and I both agreed on that.

It is so much fun for me to relive last week as I share it with you.  I hope you are all enjoying your weekend!

What a wonderful trip, and I am enjoying each and every photo! Dawson looks like he had a great time (so special to have that time with you), and you- Miss Karen - are just beautiful!

Looks like you had a fabulous trip! I love all the photos!

I have to agree that Kauai is the best! :) Can't wait to hear about your day there. Love the photos of you and Dawson -- how precious to get to spend time with your "baby!" BTW -- just noticing that Daci looks a LOT like you!

What a fun trip. I have sure enjoyed reading about it and I think it is great that you were able to take Dawson.
