I’m back from my vacation today and feeling pretty great. I spent a week with my family at Aulani which is a Disney resort in Hawaii. It was our second time there and it’s just amazing. We are all huge Disney fans in my family and even though it’s not a theme park, Aulani still delivers an incredible Disney experience. We relaxed in the pools, floated around the lazy river, played on the beach and spent way too much on souvenirs.
While I was on vacation I managed to read two really great books. The first was Dragon Age: Asunder. If you’re still playing DA:Inquisition like I am you should give this book a try. It leads into some of the event of the game really well. I don’t want to spoil anything but I finished it while in Hawaii and could not wait to get home so I could put Cole in my party.
The other book I read was Coming Home. This is an Alex Benedict novel by Jack McDevitt. It’s a series of Sci-Fi book about a guy who is sort of like space Indiana Jones. They are all great stories and this latest one did not disappoint. There are some big ideas in these books having to do with space and time but the way they are written makes them incredibly reader friendly.
We talk about Anki DRIVE in today’s comic and it’s 100% true. This was the big “Santa” present my boys wanted this year. In fact they actually both agreed on it which is crazy for 10 and 4 year old brothers who pretty much fight about everything. My wife put me in charge of getting this gift which was a huge mistake. I went in thinking I’d just get the starter kit and ended up checking out of Amazon with an extra track, two more cars, and a quick charge kit. Despite my best efforts Kara has not allowed me to crack into it yet so I can’t offer any kind of review. After Christmas I’ll be sure and post a write up and let you know what the family thinks of it.
I had a great vacation but it’s nice to be home. I missed you guys.
