Cowell's in Kauai

Recently, my lovely wife and I were blessed to be able to take a family vacation to Kauai for a week along with her parents, grandma and cousin.  This was my first time to any of the islands and as the photos will show, it was an epic trip.  We woke before the sun every morning, enjoyed sunrise walks or coffee on our balcony, went on an insanely rad 7.5 mile hike back to a 300ft. waterfall, toured the Napoli coast, played games in the evening while watching the sun go down (assuming we weren’t still swimming in the 80+ degree water at the beach)…it was all magical.

As everyone warns you, you won’t want to leave and we definitely didn’t want it to end, but it’s also so amazing to have so much to look forward to when we get back.  Till next time Kauai…till next time!






Pretty unreal how incredibly lush Waimea Canyon was…

One day, Amber, her cousin and I decided to take on a pretty challenging 7.5 mile round-trip hike to the 300ft Hanakapi’ai Falls…worth every drop of sweat to get there!  Not to mention we had a nice secluded beach to catch our breath at in  the middle of the hike.

Hernandez can play multiple positions, which loses a lot of its appeal when you realize he hitting .191. Disney over the past several years invested a lot of capital in renovating its theme parks and employees pensions.

Public opinion has swung against Len Brown after news of his affair with the majority of people responding to an online poll calling for him to resign.But public relations experts say the sex scandal may not spell the end of his career and that his future will depend on how well he handles the Cheap Jordan Shoes issue and the level of support he receives from his familyThe public were quick to express their thoughts yesterday afternoon on Mr cheap nfl jerseys Brown's two year affair with Hong Kong born local government hopeful Bevan Chuang.LenBrown was trending on New Zealand Twitter last night and this morning, and many tweets condemned his actions.Among calls on his Facebook page for Mr Brown to resign, Andrea Staniford said she was "absolutely appalled" and questioned his role in Ms Chuang's political aspirations.Others supported Mr Brown, including Herald reader Nick Roughan who said: "The people of Auckland elected Len Brown to the office of mayor, not as his wife's husband. Let him answer to the electorate solely for his performance as mayor."Deborah Pead, of Pead PR, said Mr Brown could easily recover from the scandal, but it would depend on the support of his family."It looks as though he is already following the right advice in that he has confessed and that is certainly the right thing to do," she said."The way it is handled from here on in, a lot of that depends on how his family respond to the news and how they react to it."If we see his wife and family coming out in support of him and they are able to forgive his transgression that will stand well for his future reputation."Other advice Mr Brown might be receiving was to admit to any other affairs or problems, said Ms Pead.Mr Brown should also lie low to let the dust settle and then "put his head down and deliver on being the very best mayor"."I think if he can separate his personal and professional life, then the public will overlook this and he can move on with once again being the mayor of Auckland.Ms Pead said the scandal did not necessarily spell the end of Mr Brown's career."Sex scandals are not new, in days gone by affairs used to almost be part of the leadership package look at Clinton and Kennedy."In some ways and I am not necessarily saying it is the case here but virility almost enhances a man's leadership, it's part of the power package."I am reluctant to say it, but it could have been worse he could have been caught with a prostitute."The Department of Internal Affairs said that if a mayor stood down before he or she had been sworn in, a byelection would be held to find a new mayor.The second highest polling mayoral candidate did not automatically become mayor.University of Auckland local government law cheap china jerseys expert Ken Palmer said Mr Brown had not broken any laws, and he did not believe he had breached the Auckland Council code of conduct.Councillors could use the code to question Mr Brown and could seek a vote of censure relating to clauses addressing integrity and misuse of public property, he said."It's a human failing for people to have these sorts of relationships from time to time, I wouldn't have thought it's a critical thing, people go through all sorts of personal problems ."It seems to be relatively minor, what his alleged behaviour had been in relation to council premises, it's not as though there's $1000 spent on some private, personal ambition that's the sort of the thing the Auditor General would bring up, unlawful expenditure."He did not think the scandal would hurt Mr Brown's career."It's a personal domestic matter and he shouldn't really suffer much of a consequence for it.
