Goodbye Seattle; Aloha, Hawaii!

July 5, 2016

I’m a little behind with this post– we left Seattle on Saturday and flew out to Hawaii.  Our Seattle trip was so much fun– we visited a few beaches, caught up with old friends, and spent tons of time with family.  We also visited a few family-friendly sites that Ryan and I had never taken Lila to– the Everett Children’s Museum, and the Seattle Aquarium.  It was a packed week!

Then, we flew from chilly Seattle to…balmy Hawaii:

I was a little nervous about this flight– they couldn’t sit us all together, so Ryan and Lila sat together and I stayed with Charlie.  It was 5.5 hours…that’s a long time to entertain a baby on a flight! Luckily, he did great– slept a lot, ate a lot, and stayed generally happy.  Before I knew it, we were landing in Kauai, ready for vacation #2!

We are having a blast here– it is SO beautiful.  I’ve been to Hawaii once before, on a high school biology trip– but, that was a long time ago and we were on a different island.  Kauai is beautiful…and wonderfully laid back.  It seems like a great place to take kids– just beaches and beautiful hikes for days.

Hope you had a great fourth! Aloha! 🙂

    I’m impressed with Charlie! I’m already worried about myself on these flights… we go from PA -> California -> Hawaii. Hopefully I’m not too grumpy by the time we get there. I have a feeling the way back is going to be the real test for me… do you have a long stop on the way back?

      Haha, the way back is going to suck BIG TIME. I’m just trying not to think about it. We’re flying from Kauai to Honolulu, then Honolulu to Atlanta, and Atlanta back to Huntsville. Ughghg.
