Hawaii Part 2

Warning these pictures may bore you or relax you. We had a list of suggested things to do in Maui but really all we wanted to do was sit by the pool and drink pina coladas, play with Connor, sit on beautiful beaches, play with Connor, take walks, eat good food, play with Connor and do a little shopping :) No emailing, no cleaning, no errands, no appointments except for spa appointments. Just relax, play and repeat.

Connor skipped his nap most days so here he is having his down time in the shade and watching a show on the iphone. Which after this trip I could write a commercial on how helpful the iphone is when traveling with a child. AMAZING.

Connor pretending to sleep in the hammock. It was the perfect nap spot and Connor and I layed there watching daddy surf one afternoon.

Just lookin super cute.

Daddy relaxing with a mai tai by the pool.

Beautiful sunsets.

Chris and I ate dinner while Connor ran laps on the grass across the way. He'd run a lap or two and come over to tell us "I just raced for a little bit" and off he'd go again.

Shaved ice by the pool was a big hit, now we need to fine a place to get shaved ice in SB.

Splashing, splashing and more splashing.

Taking a break after all that splashing.

Thank you iphone. Chris and I enjoyed a delicious and relaxing dinner while Connor watched max and ruby and looked at toddler books. It was fantastic.

Asleep at only 5:45pm headed to the airport.

The Maui airport was dead. Connor ran around and burned off his second wind before our flight home. He slept the whole way! It was a great way to end the trip. I highly recommend a red eye when flying with a toddler.

Hawaii Part 1

You would not believe from that picture that Connor was ever sick that day. Earlier that day on our flight over about mid way over the pacific ocean Connor had a fever of 102, he had an accelerated heart beat and could not keep his head up or his eyes open. He was sweating profusely and I had NEVER seen him like that before. Earlier that morning I had given him some benadryl to help him sleep on the ride to LA and hopefully the flight over. As suggested by our pediatrician I gave the benadryl a test run on Wednesday and all we fine. However on the flight it was a different story. Chris and I were so worried we had the flight attendant page a doctor. Dr. David a very nice cardio pulmonologist came to the rescue. He took Connor's temp and checked his pulse. He confirmed that he thought he was probably having an adverse reaction to the benadryl. We gave him some asprin and kept begging him to drink water. He had not wanted to eat or drink anything for hours. But by the end of the flight he was standing on his seat and telling everyone "I feel all better, I'm not sick anymore". The flight crew was amazing and everyone around us was so kind. He gave us such a scare. I'd have preferred a 5 hour tantrum to that any day. That's the last time he has any benadryl. Fortunately he's been fine ever since and we've been having a blast!!!!!!!!!!!

Next morning he had the breakfast of champions before hitting the pool.

This is the big pirate ship in the kids pool, that Connor liked to captain.

The big kid pool...

Chris and I love the water slide. It must have been 20 years since we were last on a water slide, man are we old. Connor was too small for this slide and he had no interest in it either.

The Luau

Monday night we attended the Luau at the Hyatt. I was so impressed with Connor because the Luau from beginning to end is 3 hrs long and he stayed in his seat or on our laps the entire time. We all loved the performance, how can you not love fire dancers. And there was one dancer in particular that was very sweet to Connor he waved to him from stage and then when they carried the Hawaiian princess through the crowd he said "hey handsome". That just melted mommy's heart. After the luau Connor was a sleepy bug and slept on Chris' shoulder all the way back to our room.

The water outside of our hotel was just beautiful.

Connor enjoyed watering the plants and the flagstone.

The view from our room.

The 1st few days Connor skipped his naps so he was very sleepy by dinner.

We found an amazing secluded beach with a rope swing and a great tree to climb on. The water was so warm and clear, I could have stayed on that beach all day. But we eventually had to leave to eat :(

To be continued . . .

Potty Potty

Well I think we're there. Connor is now wearing big boy underwear. We'll keep him in pull-ups for naps and bed but when he's awake he's in undies and I am so proud. He went potty at the zoo and the mall today, which is big because who likes going in a public restroom, NOT I but he did it no problem.

Connor turns 3!!

We had a reptile party for Connor's birthday blast. Johnny the reptile man came and put on a safari show complete with scorpion, turtles, snakes, frogs and a tortoise. The kids loved it. Connor took his job as assistant very seriously and was careful with the animals and very brave! He was totally spoiled by all and had a wonderful birthday.
Thanks to all for joining us on his special day.
