It’s the 10th again and time for Project 10. We were blessed to have my husband’s sister and her family in town during the past month so we ran around and played tourist again. Some of my shots for the project were on film and I haven’t gotten the scans back yet, so what I got on digital will have to do. I just really tried to capture random moments since that is what I tend to find most meaningful. I even shot a bit of video to make a little movie about their visit, which I will share whenever that is finished.
One of the hardest things about living on Kauai is just not having family around. We have amazing friends who have definitely become part of our family, but we miss family members back in Utah. Watching the cousins playing together and getting to know each other better is pretty amazing and I’m so grateful they were able to come out here. I have the best memories of spending time with my cousins while growing up and I am so thankful our kids are having those type of memories themselves.
We went to our favorite beaches for swimming, snorkeling and boogie boarding. We went to Smith’s luau for delicious food and an entertaining show. We visited Hanapepe’s Art Night and ate yummy kalua pork hot dogs from Porky’s. We just explored and appreciated all the awesome things to do here. It’s always a good thing for us, since we tend to get homesick when family leaves. Having a reminder of what an amazing place we live reminds us that we love living here, even with the sacrifices that sometimes brings.
