Fairbourn Family Vacation - Kauai!

We had a WONDERFUL family vacation in Kauai.  Heidi and I were there from June 17-26.  Time is slipping away, so I'm just going to post the video we made to say thank you to my mom and dad for the amazing vacation, and then a bullet list that Heidi and I made in the airport.  The list was supposed to act as an outline for a blog post, but now it is the blog post.  :)
