From Los Angeles to Oahu, HI

Our first big vacation as a family had to be a big one.  Kevin and I had been to a few of the Hawaiian Islands together but not Oahu.  Kevin had been there for a day when he was younger but never an extended stay.  We decided to stay a week at Aulani, Disney's new resort on the west side of Oahu. The girls were so excited and we left LAX pretty early.  We watched them pull our plane into place and load it up. 


 Then we boarded. We got the middle 4 seats, perfection. 

 The girls were great.  We did homework, watched movies and read books.  Of course they also had snacks and drinks too.
 Charly bear even came along.

 Daddy watched his own movies and listened to music.
 When we arrived in Oahu, Kevin had arranged for all of us to get leis.  They were beautiful with two different types of orchids.   

 The girls did wonderfully.  They carried their own backpacks and pulled their own suitcases.

 When we arrived at Aulani, this greeted us in our room. 

 Our view of Kapolei, Oahu, HI.


 After we walked around the resort a little bit we were all hungry.  We walked across the street to one of two restaurants in  the resorts complex. A organic burger joint.  Pretty good, really expensive. 

 Our dining companion. A small green lizard with a bright red neck.  
 The lobby was beautiful.  These pictures don't do it justice.  It is exactly like the commercial. Open and airy.

 The girls were so excited to sleep in the hotel bed.


That was about all we did on our first day in Hawaii.
