Aloha! We were in Hawaii on the Big Island celebrating my Dad's 60th birthday for the last two weeks. Happy Bday again Dad if you are reading this! I tried blogging while we were there but the hotel internet was soo slow, I gave up. The trip was awesome. My siblings and our close family friends all stayed in a house with my Dad. Meanwhile, hubs, Baby R and I went resort. I was not sure with the baby and pumping how I was going to be and handle everything, so I felt that if we stayed separate it might be easier. Where we stayed, we were ocean front and let me tell you those waves at night were ridiculous. They were so loud it shook our slider and windows! If you're not familiar with the Big Island, it is very different than the others. There are not a lot of white sandy beaches or beach access. There is mostly, large black lava rock EVERYWHERE. I will post some pics from our room and show you. We saw whales all over the place. This time of year is perfect there for weather and wildlife. 

I picked up this tote at the Kate Spade outlet and I have to say it was a lifesaver on this trip. I used it as a diaper bag and beach tote. I was a little leery about the white stripes getting dirty so I used scotch guard on it before we left. Worked perfectly!

The braids were a lifesaver as it was windy that day and I love anything that keeps my hair out of my face. So, I went a little wild with all sorts of french braids and a fishtail at the bottom.

Have you guys been to Hawaii? Which island? 
What other tropical places would you recommend?
