We had a chance to escape to paradise and we did. Darren called me from Toronto one day I was shopping at the Superstore mentioned a deal and the next thing we were packing. I feel so grateful to be able to take advantage of something like this.
Sam was more that pleased to be heading out on a vacation. He would see the items being piled up in the spare room ready for packing and eagerly try to assist. We purchased new swim trunks & swim shirt and he was pleased as punch.
We flew in during the day so we were able to see the beautiful blue, green waters, a true sight to see. During our search to find a place to stay we made many inquiries but one caught our attention so we made a reservation and that was that. And boy and I am glad we did. The location was wonderful, there were many pools to choose from and the room was gorgeous. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again, heck I found it hard to leave! The place was called the Honua Kai Resort.
When travelling with a four year old you never know what is going to happen or what they are truly going to enjoy. Well our vacation landed us at the Doctors, just to make sure Sam's nagging cough was not turning into anything we should be concerned about. And well the lovely pools were a hit, considering Sam didn't want to get his feet dirty with all that lovely sand! KIDS!
We of coarse made the best of all situations. We ate like kings. Relaxed and enjoyed the surroundings. Our travelling companions included my in laws who were kind enough to tolerate us. Sam was glad to have them swimming right along side of him especially when he put his face in the water, jumped in the water and just plain old floated in the water.
