Day 8: Nearing the end.....we are so sad!
Day 8 was Sunday and we started the day by attending the Lihue Ward Sacrament Meeting. It was a wonderful meeting and at the end they had all of the visitors stand up and all of the ward members went to the front and sang "Aloha" to us. During the song the Relief Society passed out hand made, knitted, leis to each of us. It was the sweetest thing....it made me cry. (Well maybe I was crying because it was almost time to go home.)
After enjoying an especially delicious breakfast at our favorite Kalaheo Cafe and snagging one last shaved ice at our favorite JO Jo's, we set off to explore the rainforest by taking Kuilau Ridge Trail Hike. It is a beautiful and easy hike that takes you along the ridge with lush rainforest on either side. The kids and I had a great time and Liz had lots of photo opps. Very fun.
