Here are some shots of my world-traveling family.
|We arranged to have my someone present my parents with leis as we arrived on Maui. Do we look hot? 'Cause the humidity hit us like a wall!|
You know all that rain that dumped on us here in Southern Utah (and in California, and elsewhere?). Well, it started in Hawaii, and we caught a day of it our first day on Maui. It really made us nervous that the rest of our trip would be rainy, but it only lasted that first day and it kind of forced us to take that day to recover from the long flight the day before. That first day we ate at my favorite restaurant of the trip, the Five Palms. It was a really nice fine dining restaurant in one of the hotels in Kihei. It was really beautiful and peaceful, and they had the giant windows open, so we could listen to the waves rolling in and look out on the beach.
|No, you're not wrong, Max really did get more food than I did! (That's okay, he shared!)|
|When the kids got restless, we took them down to the private beach of the hotel.|
The second day of our trip, Adam took the big kids kayaking and snorkeling while I took the littles to the beach. They said there were so many turtles, and they got so close! Here are some shots from their kayaking trip, and from Anne and Jer's kayaking trip our last day on Maui:
|Click on this one so you can see this turtle's face--so cool!|
|Yellow bikini woman will forever be remembered because she got in between Jer and the turtle in this shot that shows how close the turtles were.|
Throughout the trip, we spent a lot of time at the beach. If I remember correctly, I think we went to the beach every day but two of our 8 days on Maui. This slide show has some of my favorite of the beach shots.
