Disney’s Aulani Resort- Ko Olina, Oahu, Hawaii

I’ve been wanting to stay at Disney’s Aulani resort in Hawaii for a long time now. We are huge Disney fans and even though we travel to Walt Disney World multiple times a year we’ve never made it out to Aulani. We spent 10 days in Hawaii in February 2021 so I finally got toContinue reading “Disney’s Aulani Resort- Ko Olina, Oahu, Hawaii”

How to Get a Hawaii Quarantine Exemption

Hawaii’s fragile economy relies heavily on tourism but as a small group of islands with limited healthcare availability they have really struggled with choosing between health and sustainability and oftentimes those go hand in hand. Hawaii reopened for tourism in late 2020 after being closed for over half the year, but not without limitations. AtContinue reading “How to Get a Hawaii Quarantine Exemption”

Disney World Christmas 2020

Having a baby is hard work so we decided to take a load off by going to Disney World with 4 kids and a newborn! In all seriousness though adding a newborn to our trip didn’t change hardly anything except a few more stops at the baby care centers. We opted to stay at ourContinue reading “Disney World Christmas 2020”

Disney World Late August 2020

Hurricane Laura made her grand appearance in our area one afternoon in late August. Our electricity is quite finicky at our house, it goes out every time it even thinks about bad weather. As usual, our electricity went out with the first gust of wind amid clear blue skies and not a drop of rainContinue reading “Disney World Late August 2020”

Disney World August 2020

Shortly after returning from Disney the first week of August we were really missing it! You can read about that trip HERE. While we were on that trip the farm got a much needed rain. A really good rain. The crops were looking good and we started gearing up for harvest, but everything was aContinue reading “Disney World August 2020”

Disney World July 2020

We were actually supposed to have 2 Disney trips in July. The first week of July our trip was cancelled due to Disney still being closed. It was a major bummer because we really needed out of the house, but thankfully they reopened and we were able to make it there at the end ofContinue reading “Disney World July 2020”

Walt Disney World February 2020

Considering we’ve been confined to our homes for over a week now due to COVID-19 and social distancing you would think I would be caught up on my travel posts by now, but I am not, of course. This is the last post in our winter travel adventures though so I wasn’t too far behind!Continue reading “Walt Disney World February 2020”

Disneyland Paris

It’s no secret that we are huge Disney fans. We visit Walt Disney World 5+ times a year and enjoy every second of it! So one would think that it would be a no brainer for us to visit Disneyland Paris while in town, but that was not our plan! We only had 5 daysContinue reading “Disneyland Paris”

February 2020 Wrap Up

One again, February was a busy month away from home for us (I swear things are starting to slow down!) We spent the first couple days of February at our favorite local getaway, Gaston’s White River Resort. If you aren’t familiar with Gaston’s check them out HERE. As always we enjoyed our cottage, trout fishing,Continue reading “February 2020 Wrap Up”

Paris France January 2020

If you have a fantasy like dream of visiting Paris sipping espresso and eating macaroons beneath the Eiffel Tower in a picturesque setting then I advise you to stop reading now. I too had romanticized Paris. I took French throughout school as my foreign language and was smitten with it. When cheap flights to ParisContinue reading “Paris France January 2020”
