Rainy Holiday

Living on this island it can be easy to think..."oh it's only raining here, but if we go out I bet we can find some sun." Well we tried that on Monday and we were not as successful as we had hoped :)
 It's easy for us to get caught up in the everyday and not remember to set aside time for family adventures and exploring. Since we've moved here we have yet to take the kids to see the beautiful waterfalls. It was raining at our place, so we thought it would be a good day to see the falls really flowing. It was a crazy downpour! The blue blob above is Tom checking out to see how far the hike to the falls was and if it was going to clear up. The kids and I stayed in the car.
 We stayed long enough to roll down the window and take two pictures. The falls were raging, but no one wanted to go on a rainy, slippery hike to get a closer look.
 Below...Tom has been making a couch and tables for Kyle's room that will convert to a full size bed. It is the same pattern that he used to make our queen size bed...the most comfortable bed that I have ever slept on!
Hopefully the sun will stay out long enough for the clear finish to dry.
