We had the amazing opportunity to go to Hawaii to visit Brennan's mom and stepdad in February. We were excited to escape to warmer temperatures, get away from every day life, and most of all to see his parents who we hadn't seen in almost 3 years. Well, actually Brennan has seen them more recently than that. They saw each other at his brother's wedding about a year and a half ago.
The kids were so excited to fly again. In fact a few days before we left when I pressed Tatum about why she was so excited about the trip her reply was that she couldn't wait to fly on an airplane so she could watch movies. Hahahaha. Good thing we are taking you all the way to Hawaii kid! Apparently we could throw on a few movies in a row at home and call it good. ;)
I won the disagreement between Brennan and I about what time we should get to the airport. He thought we should be there earlier. As it was, even leaving when I wanted to, we were still too early. Too much time to kill. Oh well.
We visited with Melanie and Lester for a bit, ate some pizza and headed to bed.
Our first day on Kauai we mostly explored close to home. They literally live right by the beach and they have this perfect little baby beach for the kids where it's protected from any big waves by big rocks.
We may do a bit of over-documenting on trips like this. :) So the only way this is going to be a feasible undertaking for me is to break it up into several posts. Stay tuned for day 2!
