Welcome to my travel journal, I thought it would be a good way to document our holiday and all the things we did and so we can share it with friends and family who are interested in checking out what we did. Firstly i'd like to thank my Mum and Dad for coming on this trip with us as it truly meant the world that they could be there with us and especially the boys having that memory shared with their grandparents. Growing up I lost most of my grandparents before I got to appreaciate the incredible relationship you can have with a grandparent. We also just lost our last remaining grandparent last year, my beloved granddad, which was incredibly sad and I wanted my kids to experience the joys of having their grandparents still here and able to join them on this amazing experience. Our holiday started with a stop over in Hawaii before we headed to LA for the majority of our trip. While in Hawaii the kids were itching to get into the water so before we even had togs and towels or spare clothes ready to go, they inched their way into the water. Cameron of course got completely drenched and Mitch joining him, Josh was good, he listened and stayed on the sand and just dug and drew in the sand. We had a few hours to kill from arriving to when we could check in, about 7 hours i think it ended up being, and after a 9.5 hour flight with minimal sleep, we were all very very exhausted and looking forward to checking in and catching up on some sleep. After we finally checked in and all had a nap we headed out for dinner and just took in the scenery of waikiki at night which was beautiful. It was a nice little intro into where we were staying and what we would do when we came back after our LA leg of the journey.
