Note to commenter lmk: Of course you may copy the picture of Vivian's hospital bed to use in your search for a bed for your daughter! I hope it helps. Keep me posted on what you find. That bed was a godsend for us when Vivian was in the hospital.
Vivian loved drinking an Oreo smoothie out of a pineapple cup (which she called a "porcupine")
Dots and her friend Maddie also liked Oreo smoothies in porcupines!
Vivian really enjoyed the fish in the lagoons around the hotel property
We would snag a few extra pieces of bread at breakfast each morning and feed them to the fish. Vivian was really good at tearing the bread into really small pieces to make it last longer

Vivian liked Happy Hour too
What's better than a fruity drink and some broccoli dipped in ketchup? Ha!
My friends Bettina and Michelle with me at Happy Hour
We abandoned our dinner plans when Vivian put on her Rudolph pajamas and climbed into bed when we went back to our room to watch the sunset

The next morning Vivian checked out the beach and ocean with her daddyman
I thought this little "snowman" on the beach was funny!
Though it took a little convincing to get Vivian into the pool, she had fun on the water slides

Vivian loved washing her feet off at this shower. I bought this Aqua Jogger swim belt for Vivian before we left for Hawaii. It worked out really well for keeping her afloat in the water (She still required constant supervision, of course!)
Dots and her friends caught some rays
Robert relaxed by the pool with his book
And Vivian hung out in her stroller in her clothes (she wanted NO part of her swimsuit after she got out of the pool - I had to whisk her into a dressing room quickly before she disrobed in public!)
I met some friends at the Four Seasons next door for lunch
A fun couple of days for everyone, wouldn't you say?
Seventeen and Spring Break!
