We went to thaw out in Moab for a while, always a favorite!
This spring we celebrated my mom's 60th birthday with an amazing trip to Hawaii. We stayed at the Aulani Disney Resort and cannot say enough about how amazing that resort is. The adults loved it, the kids loved it.....even with a stomach bug that sidelined half the crew for a bit. They have every detail covered from food to numerous lifeguards to pristine beaches and calm lagoons to swim and snorkel in. This is not how we usually travel, but with a big group (kids outnumber the adults) we would do it again in a heartbeat.
The only thing that didn't go our way at Aulani was that they don't allow people to bring their own SUP. I hauled that thing all the way from CO and I was going to use it!! So we rented a car and took a tour over to Lanakai, that was a good move! It is one of the most beautiful beaches and protected smooth water we have seen. The other being the huge wind surfing bay in Bonaire. We enjoyed a fabulous breakfast and morning paddling, surfing and building on the beach.
We also got to hang out with our friends from Telluride. Joanna and the kids came to play with us at the resort and had us over for dinner at their beautiful home in Honolulu. Colter, Roark, Reese and Dylan were tiny playmates when we lived in the Boulders and it was fun to reconnect.
We couldn't leave without a picture with Minnie!
