Wordless Wednesday…”Mom I want to Jump”

Posted on July 28, 2010. Filed under: Wordless Wednesday | Tags: , , , , , , , , |

If you remember when I posted about our last family vacation to Kauai I talked about the waterfall where MB was so mad we didn’t let her jump. These photos should tell you why! First is the happy girl thinking she is going to jump and my expression is watching another kid stumble on the rocks while climbing around…so scared of something going wrong and I am ready to help (notice my hands). The 2nd photo is the jump. She still talks about how we wouldn’t let her jump.

Family Vacation, take 1

It is going to be downhill from here :).

We are off on our first family vacation together (Todd, Maddie, and I) and honestly from my previous life other than Mommy and me trips or family/friend/golf visits this is Maddie and my real first family vacation. Good stuff.

The first surprise was Todd and our airport driver surprised Maddie with a limo pick-up. She was so surprised she got all shy… until she got inside and then relaxed like a rock-star.

We had an uneventful flight. I must vent a little it was amazing to me that in 6 hours they served no food. You could buy snacks if you wanted and they only came down twice with drinks. They didn’t even give you the can of soda and never once did a water run. Airplane travel is definitely no frills anymore. I was prepared with water bottles and we shared some lunch. They also showed Extraordinary Measures as the first movie..not sure I think that is happy plane pick but I did enjoy the movie. Maddie was a dream we started and ended the flight with naps and in between she and Todd snuggled up watching Scooby Doo and she then watched Princess Diaries by herself. There is no doubt she is a professional traveler. Others on the plane were amazed, they didn’t realize there was a child around till she got up for the restroom.

A great flight and we arrived…Kauai is beautiful. The green mountains, the beach. Love it. We got to our hotel equipped with a huge koi pond and truly a look of paradise. Our room wasn’t ready but we enjoyed lunch by the beach and then it was ready. Now they have a little snafu and are going to have to move us half way through, but offered us a late checkout Friday and $250 in hotel credit, so worth the moving hassle.  Travel fairies are looking on us again.

Beach, pool, and catch up sleep the first day…Looking forward to the adventures ahead.
