Aloha Friday: We Have Arrived!

It’s time for another Aloha Friday, the day that you take it easy and look forward to the weekend, in Hawaii and blog land anyway. As you should know by now, over at An Island Life, Kailani decided that on Fridays she would take it easy on posting and ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link at An Island Life’s blog. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

Today is the big day. Or it will be. Right now it’s like two weeks from today and I’m writing this preemptively in this big attempt to be organized and make sure some new content gets put up while I’m away. But as you are reading this we are either moving into our new apartment or have moved in, or will move in as soon as we finish waking up and eating a quick breakfast. We’ve had a long three days on the road and likely have a lot of stories to tell, but they’ll have to wait. So while we’re waiting…

  • Have you ever been on a road trip? With a preschooler? Tell me about your road trip adventures and / or any traveling with children stories. Give me the good stuff – the silly / scary / sweet stories from your adventures on the road.
  • Do you like to travel? How often do you find time to do it? How often would you like to?
  • What’s the best hotel you’ve ever stayed in? The worst?
  • How excited are you that MM and his future baby sister will have their own PLAY ROOM in this new apartment (nevermind it means they’ll be sharing a room – it’s a goooooood thing)? Half as excited as me? Can you feign some enthusiasm? Think he’ll still drag all his toys out into the living room anyway?

Have a great weekend! Next time you hear from me, it might even be a non-scheduled current post!


  1. I’ve done a few road trips with the kids but the longest was 14 hours – nothing like your trek this week! We are bad parents and let them watch movies the whole time but it kept them happy.

    I think MM & BB sharing a room is a great idea, my boys want to share a room when we move even though we’ll have plenty of bedrooms. A separate playroom is an awesome thing.


  2. I love staying in Hampton Inns or some of the Marriott chains. Typically they aren’t expensive & usually they are very clean. Plus it’s nice to get up in the am & eat breakfast before starting the day.

    I think it’s a great idea for MM & BB to share a room. Yes, you’ll still have some toys in the living room but the majority of the mess will be out of site & it’s always easier to take a few things out & then put them back.

    Sending good thoughts that this was a great experience & that you guys will get settled quickly!
