The flight went well, surprisingly well. With kids 7 and 4 years old I didn't have my hopes very high, but it went smoothly. We arrived at the Kona Airport in the early evening, picked up our mini-van at Thrifty (great deal through American Express) and headed north, about 20 minutes to our Waikoloa condo. With no supermarket in sight in Waikoloa, we decided it best to grab a quick "cheap" dinner in Waikoloa - let me qualify "cheap". We had fish and chips from a hole in the wall with a window. 4 meals for the 5 of us was enough to share, but the price tag was enough to keep me cooking for the kids in the condo the rest of the week.
Day 2 - off to Costco we went :)
