BRRR!! Just got back from an awesome trip to the Big Island of Hawaii. Warm and sunny there, 55 degrees back in Tucson. Take me away! We figured this was the perfect time to do a family vacation because next year, when we adopt from Africa, we won't be going anywhere for quite awhile. We exchanged our timeshare for the Wyndham Kona Hawaiian in Kailua-Kona and it was beautiful! Vintage Hawaiian decor and gorgeous grounds. Tons of free activities and close to the action. We would definitely stay there again. We did so much, 4-wheeling, snorkeling, hiking, beaching, exploring....I am pooped out but we all had a great time. Here's a few photos. Aloha!
