Kristin’s Wedding

When Kasey sent me a deal for $89 round trip tickets from Denver to SLC, I knew I couldn’t pass up the chance to come out for Kristin’s wedding.  And I’m so glad I did.  I had the absolutely best time.  It filled my cup to the brim.  First up was a bowling party the…

Wailua River State Park Kayaking

We headed back to the Wailua River to give kayaking a second try.  Luckily the river had receded enough that it was safe to kayak and to hike today.  Most of the group split off and went to hike Secret Falls.  But there was no way I was convincing my boys to do that hike…
