We are enjoying one last day at the pool before we fly home from Orlando tonight. September is looming and I don’t think I can ignore the back to school emails, sales and information for much longer. We have had a fabulous time in Orlando- exploring the Disney Parks, cooling off at Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon as well as being thrilled and whirled around on many fast-paced rides and adventures. Each night we have gone to bed sun kissed and exhausted. A successful family vacation 🙂
Here are a few pics from the past few days. Hope you are all enjoying the last fleeting days of summer. Happy Wednesday!!

My obsession to visit Hawaii started a couple of winter’s ago when I was stuck on the couch for a week with a nasty cold/flu. The weather outside was miserable, I was miserable and was looking for a new show to watch. I got sucked in to “Hawaii Five-O”. I am not even sure the show was that phenomenal but the incredibly beautiful scenery episode after episode was exactly what I needed. And I knew right at that moment that I MUST visit Hawaii one day. Flash forward and here we are. I still can’t really believe it. I am sitting here writing this poolside, the sun is dazzling, the sky is crystal blue and the palm trees are swaying in the breeze- heavenly.

After a day long traveling adventure and arriving late in the evening, we awoke bright and early the first morning to a spectacular sunrise. A cup of coffee on the balcony or run at this time of day really is good for the mind and body.

I have totally fallen in love with the Big Island. We are having an incredible time. It truly is a magical place. I feel like we have only just begun to see the amazing sights. Our hotel at Kings Land is sleepy and relaxing. The staff is welcoming and warm. Dinner at restaurants is served from 5-9:30. Unlike NYC, the vibe here is get up early enjoy a full jam packed day in the sun and then retire early to re-energize for the next day. We seem to be adjusting just fine 😉

So far we have chilled out at the pool, wave jumped at the beach, the girls have swam with dolphins, Ron and I tried paddle boarding, we have snorkeled, tried the local cuisine and most of all we have relaxed. Life is good. We are lucky and I am grateful. Here are some of my favorite pics so far. I look forward to sharing more of our adventures. Shaka Brah!
