Ready for an insane amount of photos from our Christmas-New Year's vacation in Kauai?! Yup, this is the photo drop of all those goodies! We had a great time on the island and are already dreaming of going back this Christmas and making it a yearly thing!!!
We scored an extra seat on the plane both trips. Literally just lucked out on that, which was a huge life-saver having a whole row to ourselves. Beau was able to stretch out and sneak in some quick naps. We had horrible turbulence on the way there, which was no fun! But after 9hours of travel we were happy to be at our destination! Little Beau was able to make a quick and easy transition with the time! Woo-hoo!
This kid obviously had the best time on his very first Christmas! Glorious sunshine and lots of island air. We made sure to take many strolls, just enjoying the breeze and the sun. It felt nice to just kick back and relax after working my butt of all year! Being a working from home mom is no easy feat (post to come on that)!
It was amazing to have an extra set of hands all day long! Hooray for daddy! We just soaked up all the together time we could. My aunt and uncle were also on the island at the same time too, so they helped out a lot as well, making it really a vacay for this mama! Cause you know sometimes when you go on a vacation and you get back home and feel like you need a vacation to recover....it was nothing like that!
I'm pretty sure this little face sums it up! He had a great time! There was always so many new things to look at and do! Plus, he got to fall asleep to the sound of the waves every night. We stayed on the cliff over looking the ocean in Hanalei.
I seriously do hope this becomes an annual thing! We are trying to get my parents and sister on board for the next trip. Staying in Princeville and renting a condo is the way to go. You can cook in your own kitchen, have a pool, and be just a short drive to everything! Plus, there's a great walking trail and cute little shopping center with the best ice cream (Lappert's).
To see a bunch more photos from our trip, check out the hashtag nelsonsdokauai on IG. I'm showing some restraint, because I have about 100 more pictures I could post! And maybe if you're lucky (and I have time) all post all the deets on the trip like places to stay, eat, etc. If you haven't already, make sure to read last post on sleep and comment with any advice you got!
