Gone Tropical

The lei smelled really good, btw.

Sorry for the week-long radio silence, but I had a fabulous excuse. I went to beautiful Hawai'i for a week with my husband, son, and husband's family. :-D We stayed at the Disney resort, Aulani, which is on the southwestern tip of the island of O'ahu. The resort isn't on a very large plot of land, but the landscaping and striking architecture reminded me of Disneyland and made the place seem like it was sprawling.

The resort is basically a water park by the beach with lodging and restaurants surrounding it. There was a lazy river, a zero-entry pool for the kids that didn't get deeper than 4 feet, an aquarium of tropical fish where people could also snorkel for an extra fee, several hot spas including an infinity spa, and an adults-only pool that was unfortunately under construction while we were there. There were also two fun water slides and a water play area. We arrived in the early afternoon and as soon as we got into our hotel room, we changed the kiddo into his swim suit and let him jump into the play area.

It's a beautiful place. The view from our room wasn't the beach but back toward some hills. We were surprised to find out later that they weren't regular hills....

I'm not complaining. :-) And the weather in Hawai'i sure beat the weather at home.

More outfit pics to come from the trip in upcoming posts. It was fun to be able to wear some spring and summer outfits in the middle of October, and also swim outdoors again.
