Up until now, Hawaii hasn't made my “top five family vacations” wish list.
My reasoning seemed pretty sound -- If I was going to endure an eight hour plan trip with two small children, I’d rather go to London or Paris, and if we were going to do something tropical and far away, why not shoot for the moon and aspire to Tahiti (snobbish as it seems, Hawaii always seemed a little too “easy”.)
But then I read Ayelet Waldman’s piece in this month’s Cookie about her family’s annual trip to Kona Village, and as if he was reading my mind, yesterday my father-in-law sent over these photos of my husband as a child on a family trip to Hawaii (how awesome are my mother-in-law’s glasses?)… And now, well now Hawaii is on the list. For sure.
