    All caught up, great updates!! Aulani is gorgeous, sounds like you had a great time at the spa, but not so much fun for Pods. :lmao: Loved the pool time pics too, it really looks like a lot of fun to relax and float down the river! Aulani is definitely a place I hope to stay someday!! :)

    Hope you are having an awesome trip in Mexico! ::yes::

    Hi again! We are back from Mexico-Thanks everyone for all the good wishes for our trip! I still have to upload pics, so I will get to a mini TR later. But for now....back to Laniwai...

    After our massages, we went back outside to enjoy the garden some more-

    Pods was MUCH more of a man than me when it came to hangin in the cold tub-

    When we had been watered enough, we left and headed to get Ty & Tim from Painted Sky, where Pods had a frozen yogurt-

    [​IMG]

    Girlie stuff-

    [​IMG]

    The boys were going to golf 9 holes across the street, and I was going to wander aimlessly around Aulani in their absence...:rotfl:

    The fishies in the tank-

    a great option if you are at all nervous about the actual ocean. :thumbsup2

    I decided to do-

    Which was very cool and had lots of surprises! (Spoiler Alert)

    When I returned my gadget to the Community Hall, painting a cell was underway-

    For me, it was time to hit the shower- Pods and i would be venturing next door to Azul for dinner at the Marriott- up next, after I run out in the impending blizzard for some last minute errands!

    I guess its probably just as well that I can't see your pictures right now as I am DYING for a vacation.

    But you know I'll be back and I'm sure you had a fabulous time!

    Glad you had a great time in Mexico! Can't wait for the mini TR for that trip!

    Nice update, Can I just say again how much I love that spa? It is so pretty! That trail tour you did was nice, is it a sort of self guided with that gadget? Is it like a phone type thing?

    Looking forward to the next update.

    Is the fish tank to snorkel in? Cool idea if it is. Beautiful pictures of the spa area.

    Hope the blizzard a bunch of hype, anyway stay safe & warm.

    Gorgeous pictures. I hope you don't get buckets of snow. I think we are going to dodge the bullet down here completely.

    We got somewhere around a foot- no power outages, streets are all paved. Very glad we do not live in Connecticut, MUCH worse up there! Here it's just pretty, pretty snow!:)

    What was that hand held thingy? Like a walking tour guide?

    Omg ur snow I have to say it was so pretty to look at but I can imagine the inconveniences it brings.. And here I was complaining about the rain on Friday lol! (What us Californians don't know what that wet stuff is lol)

    I was wondering the same thing about the fish tank. There was a lifeguard back there? Is that for humans to snorkel in?

    Glad Mexico was warm!
