Real Life :: Hawaii Ya Doing?

Friends, I can’t even tell you what an amazing trip we had! It was relaxing as can be….sadly it took me a good two days to get used to doing NOTHING! We swam and ate and lounged….a few sights were seen, but mostly it was fun in the sun. Wolfie LOVED it. He doesn’t know how to swim just yet but he was so happy and confident in the water. I ordered him the cutest little swim suits from two of my fave brands, Polarn O. Pyret and Mini Boden. They were kind of Euro style trunks that looked adorable online but In real life they were a leeeeetle bit smaller than I had envisioned. Think Daniel Craig as James Bond. I kept giggling— they were still SUPER cute but hilariously short compared to other kids in their ankle length board shorts. Wolfie loved them, struttin’ around the pool all confident and what not.

I have so many photos to share but for now, here is a little sampler of our trip! These photos were all shot on my iPhone with Instagram (i’m “galexina” if you care to follow! If you aren’t using it, it’s too much fun….Twitter meets Flickr!). MAHALO!



This is where Wolfie spent most of his time. The pool. There was a huge grown up pool and then this terrific kid’s pool with pebbly/sand bottom and a sweet slide, that was only 2 feet of water. It was so amazing for him to be able to play independently in the water. My eye was on him, of course, but I didn’t have to literally hold him or be next to him.

This is where I spent a good deal of my time:

Greg eyeing the menu at breakfast:

Mmmmm pineapple pancakes! (in the batter for extra nom) Greg got banana macadamia nut, which were even better….

Hang Ten, Little Dude!


The World’s Largest Shave Ice!!!

The most picture perfect sunsets and warm balmy evenings…..

And one tired and happy kiddo.

    Holey Moley – that shaved ice alone is worth making the trip half-way across the globe. What a beautiful holiday Alix. Looks as though you had a fabulous time.

    Hi there!! Just happened upon your blog and LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! 🙂 I just started one myself… http://www.spiritandsole.net …hopefully, I can make it as brilliant and wonderful as yours is! Now, question: WHERE IN HAWAII AND WHAT HOTEL??? I have a 3 year old and we want to take a trip there this summer… and that kids pool sounds PERFECT! Thanks!! Best- Evan 🙂

    • Alix says

      We stayed at the Hyatt on maui. It was pricey but worth every penny! There are a bunch of other big hotels that head great pools too…I’m planning another update on the trip and i’ll give more details! It was a GREAT vacation with a kiddo!
