Waikiki, Hawaii Spring Break ‘18 Part 1

We decided to start R’s spring break a day early. I grabbed her out of school about ten minutes early on Wednesday and we zipped right to the airport. A direct flight from Anchorage to Honolulu, with a tailwind that shaved an hour off our flight time! Ty and R got upgraded which was lovely for me. I bought the kids the snack pack then the flight attendants were kind enough to deliver R’s first class meal back to where I was seated. So yummy!

We arrived about 9pm and L immediately passed out at the luggage carousels. He slept through the cab ride to the hotel, the check in, and the transfer to the bed!

My mom met us there and we spent the next few cloudy days freezing at the pool. Not ideal weather…

Unfortunately L also picked up R’s cold so one very early morning was spent at the ER for an asthma attack. We learn something new to try every time we have to do this. However, I’m hoping we won’t need to do this again!! He was definitely a bit slower on this trip for the next day and a half.

– I was able to get a few morning runs in and we just tried to get out as much as possible. Sunday we went to the Honolulu Zoo. It was a great cloudy day distraction.

We left Honolulu at 9:30pm Sunday and are headed for Baltimore for the rest of our spring break! Gotta get those miles and see some old friends 😆

Boston Adventures & Travel to Anchorage Day

We had a lazy morning with breakfast at the hotel. Ty took the kids to the pool while I caught a nap. Needed one after my terrible night of sleep.

By the time I came down the boys we’re done but R had made some friends and stayed in the pool playing for a while longer.

After leaving the pool, we packed up and headed for the airport.

We went luxurious with our luggage on this trip. Everyone got their own suitcase. Largely in part because Ty was banking on getting some extra mileage from Alaska’s 20 minutes guarantee. This paid off for us on our return flight actually and we got 10,000 bonus miles!

The flights home were uneventful but beautiful. I was lucky enough to get upgraded Boston to Portland. Yay for solo flying time!

Portland has a great kids area. We burned a bit of energy there before grabbing our flight home.

Tired kiddos waiting on our luggage. That’s a 10,000 mile wait right there! 😉

This was a ridiculously short but fun trip!
