After spending two days on Oahu we flew over to Kauai for the last five days of our vacation. What an amazingly beautiful island! I just have one word of advice for all those headed to Kauai: The best way to see the island is to experience it through activities like snorkeling, boating, hiking, flying, etc. Unfortunately, the small plane ride we planned around the island was canceled due to HEAVY rains that day. Too bad but we still had a lot of fun!
A beach somewhere in Southwest Kauai
Kauai Coffee Plantation
the legend is that this was built by the Hawaiian leprechaun or menehune
A view from the Marriot Resort (not where we stayed-I wish)
Haena Beach - the end of the road
Sunrise from our hotel
Kapaa 2nd Ward
Kilauea Lighthouse - in the pouring rain
(this is what we did when our plane trip was canceled -- a beautiful substitute)
Wailua Falls - raindrops on the camera lens blurred the photo

I tried to put these cute kids to work last night. Their assignment was to move books out of boxes and on to the bookshelf. They lasted about 5 minutes.
After that they refused to work any longer, demanded dinner, and forced me to piece together a puzzle for them.
Oh, well. They really are so adorable, who could possibly refuse them.

A rousing round of applause to our wonderful Event Coordinator Missionaries, Guest Service Missionaries, and Event Services Staff. We all worked together to pull off a seamless 179th Annual General Conference.
Great Job Everyone!

Can you believe how quickly these last six busy months have passed and now its time once again for General Conference!
The 179th Annual General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints begins today at 10:00 a.m. Mountain Daylight Time. Throughout the next two days we will learn who has been newly called to be an apostle of the Lord. We will hear gospel messages and the testimonies of the prophets, seers, and revelators called in our day to lead the Lord's Church. It will be a magnificent day!
I must admit, however, that this year I am anxious for conference to finish because once it is over, we are that much closer to our wedding day. In fact, just 1 week from today Dave and I will enter the Salt Lake Temple, the House of the Lord, and there be sealed for time and all eternity. Conference is wonderful but next Saturday will be an even greater day for us. The best and most important day of our lives!
