Summer is such a fun time of the year.  As teachers we are constantly on the go.  I feel like summer time is a chance for us to rest our batteries a bit and recharge for the upcoming year.

My Summer Snapshot is a picture from our honeymoon last June.  My husband and I traveled to Kauai, Hawaii.

This was a picture from the helicopter ride we took around the island.  We decided to be dare devils and signed up for the helicopter tour with NO doors.  Yes, you read that right, there were NO doors.  It was the scariest and most exciting adventure I have ever done.  You are literally sitting on the edge.  There was nothing to the right of me except air.  The pilot warned us not to stick our hands out of the helicopter to point to things.  The wind is so strong if you extend your arm outside of the helicopter it could slam it against the side and break your elbow.  With our elbows securely tucked close to our bodies we were able to click a few pictures.  My hubby captured this picture as we were flying along the Na Pali coast.  It is one of my favorite pictures from our trip.

I can't wait to see your summer adventures.  Link up below to join in the fun and share your summer snapshot!

  2. What an incredible picture! My husband's family took us there last July and I loved it! We actually went snorkeling on the Na' Pali coast. This has got to be one of the most beautiful places in the world! Now we have something in common ;) I'm ready to go back, aren't you??

  5. What a beautiful pic my love?!!! LOVE IT! I'm so glad that you had this great adventure with your hubby! Since I was a little girl, I have always wanted to go to Hawaii. I'm also a big chicken when it comes to riding anything above land, so I can relate. Thank you for sharing love! Go visit my post.
    All the best!

  6. My hubby and I also honeymooned in Kauai! We opted for the boat tour instead of the helicopter. Such a beautiful place.

  7. Wow, how exciting! We went to Hawaii for our honeymoon as well. We didn't do a helicopter ride though, especially without doors. A little scary. But what beautiful scenery. Thanks for hosting this fun linky!

  8. What a beautiful picture! My brother and sister in law honeymooned there a few years ago!

  9. Wow! This looks truly stunning! I went in a helicopter for the first time this year and loved it but I'm not sure I would be brave enough to go in one with no doors! Have an awesome summer

  16. Wow!! That looks amazing!! I would be terrified to ride in a helicopter without doors! It looks like it was totally worth it, though!

    Shine on in First Grade

  17. Awesome picture! My husband and I were in Kauai back in 2003 but we were not brave enough to do the helicopter tours. We did a boat tour of the Na' Pali coastline and it was breathtaking! Our tour also included snorkeling which was amazing until we encountered 3 sharks! I headed straight for the boat LOL!

  18. Great picture! Now that we are moving back to Seattle we will be heading back to Hawaii for our dose of sunshine. Kauai and Maui are on our list!
    Joya :)

  19. Oh my goodness! We are so jealous of your "Summer Snapshot!" That looks like it was an amazing trip!
    Much love- Ashley and Brooklynn
