Time to catch up on some fun January memories! 

My parents escaped the frigid Oklahoma winter and came to visit in early January. Partly to celebrate my Dad's and Scott's birthdays, we decided to stay a couple of nights at Aulani. We had walked around many times, but never actually stayed at the resort. "Wow" is all I have to say. Of course, as is everything Disney, every inch of the resort was first class fun. We had such a blast!

checking in - let the fun begin!
Our room was amazing - I seriously wanted to move in. The view wasn't bad either!
Our first morning, we made reservations for the Character Breakfast. The boys were so excited to meet Mickey and his gang!
The boys barely ate a bite because they were so distracted with all the fun activities during breakfast. I think we did manage to get at least one Mickey waffle in each of them.
The boys were always the first to jump up and join in all the dances and games.
The resort has acres of pools, lazy rivers, waterslides, and other activities, but this is where we parked our stuff every morning - Menehune Bridge!
The boys ran and jumped and splashed and slid all day long.

They only stopped playing for snacks!
Scott decided to try out the "Rainbow Reef," a man-made reef in the middle of the resort for a completely controlled snorkeling environment. The boys got a kick out of seeing Daddy swimming with the fish on the other side of the glass!
The resort itself is not overwhelmingly "Mickey Mouse," but I was surprised how much the boys loved trying to find all of Disney characters who would appear here and there throughout the day.
They even waited in some long lines to get their picture taken with different friends.

We celebrated Daddy and Papa's birthday on the last evening with a fun dinner at the Monkeypod and then a special bottle of wine! Thanks to the Lieblers for introducing us to "The Prisoner!"
Aulani was such a treat - thanks Brumbra and Papa for a weekend we will never forget!
