Our trip to Maui!

We feel so fortunate to have spent our first wedding anniversary in Maui.  It is so beautiful there!  My favorite part of being in the aloha state is the over abundance of plumeria flowers.  They smell so good that I can't help but stick my nose right into the center of them and keep it there!
So beautiful.
We stayed at The Westin Kaanapali Resort and we really liked the place.  The pools were fantastic (but pretty much all the pools along the area had wonderful pools).  We did a snorkel trip on a sail boat named "The Gemini" and saw a big pod of dolphins and 4 sea turtles!  We have pictures we took on an underwater camera, but I still have to get those developed the old fashioned way.
We drank our fair share of Mai Tai's and Blue Hawaiians, but our absolute favorite was the Aloha made Kona Longboard.  Very yummy!
I love that lonesome palm tree in Lahaina.
My mom & dad were also in Maui and our tripped overlapped a couple of days... it was so fun spending a little time with them in paradise!  My dad and TL went wakeboarding and barefooting in the ocean while my mom and I went for a long beach walk and shopped!  We also celebrated my dad's 56th Birthday... very special. :)
Our last night there, we accidentally over-ordered, yuck!
It was a beautiful trip... we love Hawaii!
