Well, admist many difficulties... we finally made it to Hawaii! Our first flight was cancelled and we had to get from Decatur to St. Louis to catch our next flight in a short amount of time. Both flights were completely packed, so the girls could not have a seat and it was tight quarters. However, we are HERE! When you first get off the plane into the airport in Lihue, you can smell the ocean in the air. It is warm here, but it doesn't feel very warm because of the constant cool breeze.

Our resort is incredible, with about 5 different pools/jacuzzi's all over looking the ocean. While walking throught the hallways in the resort, you often feel like you are outside b/c at time there are no doors or windows- it's just open.

We have some great stories- about snorkeling, swimming, the resort, the girls, the locals etc. I wanted to get on here though, to post some pictures. Enjoy!

Our Resort has great views

The private beach on our Resort
We got up the morning after we got there at 6 a.m. and walked the beach.

Addie playing at the beach. She did not like the water, but loved the sand!

Sophie and mommy hanging out in the shade.

Jason and Chadwick after Snorkeling in the ocean. Don't ask about the Lobster.

Our beautiful island. We kept expecting to see Jack and Katie jump out of the bushes.

Aloha baby! There are flowers on the ground EVERYWHERE. They fall from the trees and they are so perfect to put behind your ear, they stay with no trouble!

Our hotel lobby has a great view.
