30 Days of Gratitude - Disney's Aulani Resort (3/30)

30 Days of Gratitude

I hope November 3rd isn’t too late to start my 30 days of gratitude! I am incredibly grateful for the daily blessings of good health, cherished family, and precious friends, but this year I want to focus on favorite travel moments for which I’m thankful. In our marriage and in our family, our best moments have always happened while we’re traveling, so I want to look back on those favorite times that have shaped our memories and values, brought us closer, challenged us to grow, and filled our lives with joy and laughter.

Day 3 - Disney's Aulani Resort

Today I’m grateful for our trip to Disney’s Aulani resort in Hawaii for my birthday in November 2012 and especially for this picture, which is one of my favorite pictures of us ever. We had just taken Juliet and Abby to play at the children’s club house for the morning, and Juliet was so excited over dressing up as a princess, coloring Disney pictures, and getting to sing and dance with Chip and Dale.

One Of Our Favorite Vacations

It was an awesome vacation for all of us… Juliet played pool games with Goofy and swam with new friends, Abby splashed in the kid’s water area (filled with slides, dumping buckets, and nets to climb), Joshua snorkeled with tropical fish, I blissfully floated around the lazy river while Abby napped in my lap, and Joshua and I even had a babysitter for a few hours so we could go to the spa together for massages. We drank fresh POG juice in the morning and relaxed in the Hawaiian sunshine in the afternoon. In the evenings, there were Disney movies outside and watching in awe as fire dancers and hula girls performed at the luau.

It was a truly perfect vacation, and I’m grateful for the beautiful memories that it gave us!
