Frogs: Real and Imagined

While we were in Kauai, we got to do a family tour of the Na Aina Kai Garden. It was a kid paradise and the tour was one of the highlights of our trip. The garden is known for its many beautiful sculptures. IMG_0269_1I noticed a frog pattern in my photos of the garden. There were frog sculptures here and there.

I barely had time to snap this picture.IMG_0265If my son had his way, he would have spent more time by the pond looking for an even bigger frog. I think he would have liked to be that boy in the sculpture.

I’ll be writing a more informative post about our tour at the Na Aina Kai Gardens soon (when report card week is over at my day job). Stay tuned.

  1. In our neighborhood there is a massive frog fountain, I wonder if it was inspired from these gardens! Good luck with parent-teacher week!

  2. I love frogs. I know they are slimy and slippery but they are so fun, especially for kids. I had a fun time hanging out wiht the frogs on my recent trip to Oahu. There is just something about them…
