Let's start at the very beginning

a very good place to start ........

Well we are home and starting to feel a little more normal after the journey back from Hawaii. Thought you might like to see some happy snaps from our family holiday.

We loved every bit of Hawaii and I'll share some info on where we stayed and what we loved the most.


Right off the plane and into a limo taxi. The kids thought this was so cool. I felt like a hooker.



We check into the Westin Moana Surfrider and we are greeted with this view from our room. Breathtaking.


These were right below us. Very Gidget like!

Perry was kind enough to take the kids for a few hours while I had a much needed nap. And boy did I sleep hard. Tip for anyone thinking of flying Hawaiian Air - DON'T! Dodgy brothers are us. We are very lucky to have such a great airline here in Australia, Qantas that is.

The Moana Surfrider is a gorgeous hotel, in a great location with plenty on offer for everyone. Being a Westin hotel you know you are going to have a dreamy nights sleep. There is nothing like a Westin bed ..... heavenly.

I'll post more on our trip in the next few days ...... great to be home. x


  1. Hi - it looks absolutely divine, I am so jealous. I have been to Hawaii and it was the most incredible place! Louise x

  2. Glad you are all home safe and it sounds like a wonderful holiday. Look forward to reading more about it over the coming days :)

  3. So glad to have you back, love the photo's x

  4. Can't wait to hear all about it Sharnel - you have me dreaming already. Leanne xx

  5. Looks amazing. With a limo like that, I hope you felt like a classy hooker :0

  6. Lovely photos. I am still jealous!

  7. OMG I totally know what you mean about the Westin beds! They are divine (heavenly actually). I am thinking of purchasing one (you know they sell them), so I can sleep on one every night! Glad to hear you had a fab hol. We are off in a couple of weeks to Paris and Spain for our Summer Hol (Summer in HK now), and I can't wait!!

  8. I ditto how wonderful the Westin beds are. Looking forward to reading more about your holiday. Hope you got some shopping in! We are off to the Yasawa Islands, Fiji in a few weeks and after seeing your photos I am starting to get excited:)

  9. So pleased you had a lovely time - it all looks fantastic! We rode in limo to the airport too in Port Douglas and my son still thinks its the ride of his life!!! Thinks that if you want to, you can take any car, chop it in half and put an extra bit in the middle. He says 'cool' - I agree with you though, screams tacky hens day and hookers.......! KG Welcome home!

  10. Hi baby, welcome home! So happy to hear you all had a wonderful time. Now, don't keep me in suspense, how was the shopping? xx

  11. How fantastic does all that look and sound?!?

    As long as you weren’t wearing your blue fishnet stockings in the limo, I’m sure you would have looked glamorous and not at all like a 'lady of the night'.

    Can not wait to see more!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a little comment on my blog. I truly appreciate it. xx
