Kauai Cacao Beans

Just sharing more pictures from our trip. We toured a cacao bean plantation while in Kauai. Nathan loved running up and down the paths and picking up sticks and rocks. The other kids loved sampling the various fruits... and, of course, the 10 different varieties of chocolate!

Karin, about #Stellan...
Twitter has a way to track what people are tweeting about. If you put a "#" in front of a word it puts it in the trends. So, to raise awareness of Stellan's situation people are tweeting #stellan. on the right sidebar of your twitter page you should be able to find a column of trends. you will see Stellan in those trends. If you click on it, you can see what everyone has tweeted with Stellan's name.

As far as #twibbon is concerned, it's a way to put a ribbon on your profile pic. You will notice a lot of people who follow MckMama now have "Stellan" across the top of their pic. If you click the link in someone's tweet, you can go have it automatically add Stellan's twibbon on your pic.

Hope this helps. My heart is very heavy for Stellan right now, as I'm sure we all are.
