Since we didn't make it to another island while Ray and Mary were here, we decided to take a staycation for a few days at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Waikiki.
We arrived on Sunday afternoon. We'd walked around this hotel plenty of times before, but never actually stayed there. Of course, everything was beautiful and first class.

We had an amazing ocean view.
We were so blessed to get adjoining rooms in the Rainbow Tower, right in the center of the action.
It was so much fun to sit out on our lanai and listen to the ocean and people-watch.
The pools were crowded, but by boys didn't seem to mind.
Of course, the waterslides were such a hit! Keaton must have gone down this one 75 times. We were surprised that he didn't get scared because the slide was pitch black tube! He told Scott, "I just pretend that I'm being flushed down the toilet!" ha ha
Head first (of course)
Snack by the pool.

The hotel also has this great lagoon. It was so nice because we could let them play in the water by themselves without worrying about strong waves or currents.
Daddy took Mark out for a swim around the island on the boogie board.
Lord help me. He's trying to surf already!
Scott and I were able to escape to the pool bar for some tropical drinks after the boys went to bed. A rare treat!
Our hotel even had penguins!
Such a memorable time! Feeling so blessed.

Man, I'm jealous. But you would never even know Mary and Ray were there. Are they like my parents and hate having pictures taken of themselves?
