Sherrie and I haven’t been back to Hawaii in almost 5 years which feels like forever since we were spending almost a month-per-year here for several years.  When we thought about taking some time truly away from everything – Hawaii came up first on our list.  This time some friends generously offered to their vacation home and we couldn’t say no.  So now we’re here for two weeks!

The flight from Seattle is only 5.5 hours but with four small children it can feel like forever!  Luckily, unlike our flight from Iceland (a horror no parent should ever endure), the challenge was only keeping the kids entertained and drying off Aurelia from spilling a cup of water on herself.

Once we were settled in our place the kids were adamant that we go swimming.  So, we wondered over to dinner first and then out to the Ko Olina lagoon 4 behind Disney’s Aulani.  The water was warm and the beach was nice.  We watched a wedding party exit from the church and take pictures on the beach.  Afterwards we headed to Costco for some food and supplies.
