It was beautiful, plus the three Toyotas Ryan got to drive we amazing - 2015 Sienna, Camry & Yaris - Ryan will post his reviews soon but from what I saw and heard, they were fabulous and of course driving around the Big Island you can't go wrong.
The three of us rolled in the sand, ate amazing food and lounged by the pool. Watching Claire see Hawaii for the first time made me cry, numerous times. The Fairmont Orchid resort was breathtaking and at every turn there was something amazing for us to do together. I honestly have to say that I have never been so amazed by a hotel. I have been wanting to go somewhere tropical for a few years and this hit the spot.
Melissa was able to join us for a few days and that was also a treat. Claire loves spending time with her aunties and having her there was wonderful especially since we weren't going to see her again until the holidays.
I am so thankful for this trip and for my family, I can't wait for our next adventure!
