One Week Is Not Enough At This Place


Kauai is our place. 

A place we go once a year. When people ask if we have a timeshare here, kinda but not really. We have a deed, we pay property taxes once a year. We own a piece of the Marriott Waiohai property.

And it is the best investment we've ever made.

Because we love it here.

There are a million other places we could choose, but our choice for vacation always has been and always will be Kauai, the most lush and untouched of all the hawaiian islands.

Flying with kids? Eight hours here? And back? Sucks bad. Real, real bad. But the end result? Worth it.

And for good measure, here is a picture of Rob and I six years ago...

same place...

same time...


   except I had short blonde hair and only one 9-month old.

My how times have changed.

MAHALO.

  9. Agree about Kauai. Its amazing! We have vacationed there 4 times! Thankfully we only had a 30 min flight! ;) But now it would be over 6 hours to go back. Next time I want to go with no kids! And enjoy my time! Glad you guys had an amazing time! Marriott is my favorite place to stay!

  16. Ugh. You look the same as six years ago - just gorgeous. And why oh why do you own property in Hawaii and I do not? Life is so unfair.

  20. The pictures are great, especially the second one! Looks like a dream there, I will never go, the flight is too long for me and flying there with kids, you must really, I mean REALLY love it to keep torturing yourself that way! LOL!

    Glad it was a great trip, I am sure it's hard to come home after that Paradise!
