Day 18 | August 30th

Scott and Ashleigh were up extremely early this morning but tried to let me sleep for a little while. When I got up to make coffee I discovered our coffee supplies had not been replenished so Scott made the trip downstairs for the complimentary morning coffee.

We then went down the street to find a cheaper breakfast place before heading back to our room to collect our laundry to take to the laundromat. Soon after Colleen and Paddy arrived for a visit and Colleen said they were taking the bus to Ala Moana Shopping Center for a look before coming back to the hotel for a swim and rest before dinner.

So, instead of doing the boring laundry we decided to go to the shopping center for a look as well. Ashleigh and I did a little clothes shopping and Scott was very patient waiting for us, although he did get himself a rash shirt so he could take Ashleigh for a swim in the sea.

Early afternoon we headed back to the hotel and from our hotel room saw Grammy, Paddy and Cam down on the beach heading to the sea with a surf board for a swim and paddle. Ashleigh was jumping out of her skin to get down to the beach to join them so we all quickly changed into our bathers and met them on the loungers.

Scott and Ashleigh jumped straight in the sea and Ashleigh joined Paddy on the surf board. They both had so much fun bobbing up and down over the waves and falling off every now and then.

After another big day Grammy and Poppa took Ashleigh and Paddy to dinner at the hotel food court nice and early and we meet Cam and Katharine at a Steakhouse above Yard House for drinks and dinner. The restaurant had the most amazing steak and was a little expensive but so, so yummy. Scott and I shared a calamari appetizer and then for entree (main) I had a petite fillet steak with asparagus and Scott had shrimp. The steak was so good it just melted in your mouth....delicious!

After dinner Katharine and I headed back to the hotel as we were getting up the next day to get a shuttle bus to the premium outlet stores at 8.30am. Scott and Cam went to do some brother bonding with a few Red Bulls and Vodka's. They made it back to the room about 1.30am.
