What a trip! We flew in my mom and sister to watch the kids for 8 days while Ed & I went on a tropical get-away. This was a much needed and anticipated trip for us. Everything about it was awesome! We went to Oahu and stayed at a resort in Ko'Olina, about 30 mins. NW of Waikiki. My mom is an angel on earth for not only taking care of the kids basic needs, but also carting them all to practices and games. My mom is a dear, selfless person. Most of the photos were taken from 1 of our 2 lanai's. Our resort had ponds with stingrays in one and hammerhead sharks in another. All of the food was great (I was in love with a lobster bisque). We did everything touristy (luau, Pearl Harbor, drive to North Shore, ate from a shrimp truck, shopped for souveniers at a Swap Meet, snorkel & whale watching cruise) and still had time to relax (massages, laying on the beach, EATING). Our resort was located on one of four lagoons that were connected by a nice paved walkway and beautiful landscaping. Before we left we were already trying to figure out how and when we could come back!
