Derek has been working 4 10hr shifts lately so he’s been getting Fridays off. We decided that this was the perfect time for our “family babymoon”. I’ve been feeling really sentimental as we come to the end of this pregnancy and thinking a lot about how long it’s been just the three of us. Over 6 years.. and even though I’m SO excited to become a family of four I really wanted to spend a special weekend making memories with Rowan and Derek before everything changes. So we booked the Hilton Hawaiian Village from Friday to Sunday, pulled Rowan out of school early on Friday and we were off!
Friday we checked in, grabbed some lunch and ice cream then headed to one of the pools all day. Afterward we hung out in the hotel for a bit before watching the fireworks show, picking up some pizza and renting a movie to settle in for the night.
Saturday it was pouring rain, so we decided to venture away from the hotel for some indoor adventures. After breakfast and coffee we went to see The Lego Batman movie, then played glow in the dark putt putt golf. By the time we came back to the hotel the rain had stopped. Derek actually had to play a show with his band for a few hours that night so I took Rowan to a different pool for an evening/night swim. Then we rented another movie, ordered room service and passed out.
Sunday was a gorgeous day so we headed straight down for iced coffees and pool time. We eventually switched pools because Rowan wanted to be at the one with the slides. We spent the rest of the day in the sun before checking out and stopping for an early dinner on the way home.
It was so nice to get away and focus on family time. Rowan loves staying in hotels so just the fact that we had a room thrilled her, let alone all of the other fun stuff that we did. I hope she remembers this weekend forever but if not, I’m glad I can document it here for her to look back on one day.
