The other day our last laptop charger finally broke — mine broke a long time ago and we have just been using David’s. Since we always forget to charge our laptops overnight often we both sit there next to each other working and our computers are both at 5% and we are swapping who gets the charger. When one person gets drops to 2% we switch lol. Its so bad. Anyways so David’s finally broke and we had a bunch of work to wrap up that night so we had to go to town and get one! Since it is an hour away we generally like to do something while out there and we randomly decided to do the Lulumahu Falls hike! I hadn’t ever done this hike and it is for sure my favorite so far!!! It was honestly SOO beautiful. The lighting was so pretty, the hike was SO fun, the falls were gorgeous, and to make things even better when we were walking back the sun was setting and it was pure MAGIC. The trailhead is right off Pali Hwy and can be easy to miss so keep your glimmers peeled! I highly recommend doing this hike and timing it so you end at sunset. I recommend wearing waterproof hiking shoes since you have to cross through the stream multiple times! I am kinda obsessed with mine, I got these Adidas when we first moved here and I just like that they don’t look like bulky, ugly hiking shoes. I linked to a few of my fav hiking shoes above (shoes make ALL the difference in my opinion)! #notsponsored << I don’t know why I feel like I have to say that sometimes but I feel like anytime I talk about a product or brand at all now I get accused of not disclosing a sponsored post, when it wasn’t.. so I don’t know there ya go.
The kids had so much fun on the hike and Chauncey was in heaven! David and I kept saying how in his mind each time we leave the house and can’t/don’t bring him he is probably thinking we are doing fun stuff like this and is like WTF why are you not taking me with?! And also he probably wonders why we don’t hike EVERY day! And I agree Chauncey!!! Hiking is so fun and it reminds me of doing solo hikes in AZ all the time – I loved to run down the mountain as a good work out.
I absolutely love summers with the family and find that there is just not enough time to plan everything I want to do. I wish summers were so much longer!! My friend Brianne the other day was pointing out the fact that we only get 18 summers with each child (until they are on their own. And I know even then we get summers with them obviously but 18 while they are our babies at home ;)). Which thinking of it that way just really hit me and blew my mind. 18 years sounds so long but only 18 summers?!?! Gotta make each one so epic and fun!!!! Our summer plans so far are pretty low key. We do have some family stuff going on that I have decided not to share on here but as a result we will be spending lots of time with family. Which I am so not mad about because WHAT IS BETTER? Really though. Can’t wait to get tons of cousin time for the kids and lots of time with David’s cute parents. I am sure a spontaneous trip or two will pop up but for now we don’t have much planned.
Hope you all have an amazing week!!!!
PS David is eating poke right now and it is making me want to hurl!!! I HATE the smell so much ha!
PSS A lot of you asked about the carriers we are using and I linked to them above.
