As you may or may not know, I spent the past week in Hawaii.  KID FREE in Hawaii.  Pretty awesome.  Brett had the first two days I was there off from work, and while we didn’t do anything the first day given the fact that I was despondent over leaving my kids and just wanted to go home (note to all: 5 months pregnant, hormones raging, is not the best time to leave your kids for essentially the first time ever).  But that second day we lived it up: whale watching, a drive around the island, great food – so much fun!

Some pictures we took:

The rest of the trip I was by myself while Brett worked, so I took full advantage of my alone time to read a book a day and just vegetate.  Not exciting, but so relaxing.

All in all a great success – I had just enough relaxation time, the kids had a great time with both grandmas, and everything went smoothly and easily. I could get used to this vacation thing.
