I thought I would share a few more photos from around the resort. While we were visiting, there was some construction going on. When we asked what it was for and they told us that they were building more pools. Then they proceeded to explain that when they built the resort they assumed people would stay there and then go out and explore the island. What they were discovering was that people were coming and never leaving the hotel. Well duh! They had a crazy amount of awesome things to do everyday. We did go out and explore the island a little bit. If we had just stayed at the resort the entire time I would have been just fine with that.
They had the coolest kids club that you could drop your kids off at anytime to play. Usually no parents were allowed except for a few minutes each morning. We went with the kids a couple of mornings to check out all of the fun.
Moving on to what Ethan referred to as “the Area.” He couldn’t wait for this to open every morning. The Area is where he spent most of his time. He loved it! I’m sure I could have narrowed the photos down a bit more. When have I ever been good at that ;)
Then there was the perfectly manicured beach, with scheduled treasure hunts for the kids and the greatest sand castle making kits. Why did we ever leave?
They, of course, had Disney characters hanging out all day just waiting for you to come and say hello.
We tried out some paddle boarding one afternoon. Some of us were a little more successful than others. Mostly that is just a poke at Aaron who I don’t think ever stood up. The only reason I can make fun is that there is not a single sport that involves water that I am remotely good at. I did a decent job paddle boarding. Maybe I finally found my water sport.
That was just a glimpse of it all. I shared a lot more photos of the resort in Part one of this five possible six part Hawaii recap. (Yea, I have that many more photos to share.) We had so much fun. We wore ourselves out everyday.
