Fun around Aulani

Monday, March 6, 2017

I am going to wrap up our Hawaiian vacation posts with kind of a mix of pictures and stories from the (several) days we spent relaxing and playing at the resort.

Our favorite pastimes were lounging in rafts along the lazy river and watching Perry splash and play in the super awesome splash pad (which was really an entire playground of water). We really didn't spend too much time in the ocean at the resort...because the water temps were chilly. But we enjoyed playing in the sand in the early evenings when the sun was going down.

I can't even count how many hours we probably spent in the lazy river (above). Perry's favorite was just getting carried around in his water wings while mom and dad floated in a raft...I think we used this as an acceptable "nap time" activity multiple days.

There was a breakfast buffet with characters that we did twice (first morning and last morning). Mickey met us on the way in and then several other characters came by the table. It was a great meal with lots of options and a good hearty way to start a day.

And snacks...we had our fair share of mickey bars, dole whips and shave ice at the resort. 

There is a kids club right there at the resort called Auntie's Beach House, where Perry could go and play (for free) any time of the day. There were some scheduled activities that you could sign kids up for and then open free time the rest of each day. Perry LOVED it. Auntie's had rooms dedicated to all kinds of activities (movies, games, arts and crafts, playground, etc) and he could move between them and do whatever he wanted, whenever he wanted. Needless to say it was hard to get him out of there...and Andrew and I had some precious time to ourselves to eat, wander the beach at sunset and enjoy the adult pool areas on our own. There were a few open house times when we could go in and play at Aunties with P...and it was clear why he loved it so much.

We had one really nice dinner planned just the two of us at Ama Ama (the nicest restaurant at the resort). The food was great and we were able to watch the sun set from our table.

In the evenings there were several scheduled story times around the firepit. We heard from "Uncle" and Moana about the history of Oahu and the rest of the Hawaiian islands.

And a few other totally random pics from our week in paradise:

And that's a wrap. Until next time Hawaii!
