Over spring break we went to Maui. My parents met us there. To make a long story short, we had an amazing time. How could you not if you're coming from a cold, dark place like AK.
Here are some highlights. Beware: lots of pictures ahead.

Family Shots:Very windy. At the blow hole off the Honoapiilani Hwy. We drove all away around it. Exciting narrow and curvy road. Levi threw up. He must get that from me.
At a look out on the way to Lahaina. Saw many whales. Also very windy.
At the Iao Needle. Nice hike and scenery. Surprisingly, Jordyn took a great shot here.
On my b-day, Jeff and I went out to dinner at Cheeseburger in Paradise alone. Awesome b-day...Beach in the morning, mom took me out shopping and to lunch, and Jeff and I walked around Lahaina. I recommend the fudge place besides the cheeseburger restaurant we ate at.
Levi celebrated his 2nd b-day a few days before mine. Here's a shot of us right before we ate our cake pops. Levi loved being sang too.
Our family at that one point.
Kapalua Bay in Kaanapali

Paddle Boarding:
We rented a paddle board for the week. We loved it! Jeff went surfing just about every morning (really early) and night. The kids loved getting rides on it. I surfed and actually caught some waves too; not as many as Jeff.

Levi playing on the board.
This beach wasn't a "catch a wave" kinda beach, but it was very relaxing to paddle anywhere and everywhere.

Sydney loved to surf.
This picture borderlines on one of those "awkward family photos" you see in a calender. Don't worry this won't be on a x-mas card.
Sydney had to try it too.

One of those shots where no one is looking or cares for that matter.
Lots of playing with sand and making things w/ the sand toys we had.
At night watching Jeff surf and the sunset.
More sand. Levi couldn't get enough of the sand and water.

Cooling off

Sydney and Jordyn liked to snorkel in the pool just as much as the ocean.
I know, doesn't look that excited about it. She came out of the water freezing.
Jeff and Jordyn saw a sea turtle at Ulua Beach

Climbing Trees:
The Banyan tree is always a favorite for the girls. The girls found some other cool trees to climb too.

In front of the condo we stayed in.

Pool Time:
"Tropical Pool"
Levi getting thrown in the air. He loved it.

Such a great trip. In the mornings we go to the beach, come home for lunch, then go to the pool while levi took a nap in the condo, at night go back to the beach or sightseeing, playing UNO and then crashing pretty early.
Great kid beach: Launiupoko Beach (surf and natural lagoon)
Great restaurant: Beach Bum Bar and Grill
Great snorkel: Ulua beach saw sea turtles
Want to do in the future: Molokini boat and snorkel, Jeff would like to spear fish, try the surf tank thing, stay a night in Hana, Grand Wailea pools.

I love that I recognize the spots in the pictures. We should go together one time.
