Maui, Hawaii

Well since my last post was such a downer, here is a MUCH happier post.

We have been back almost a week and its such a sad reality to come back to. I have to focus on real life now, and who wants that?! There is so much I could post about Hawaii but I am going to try to break it down into a few pics from the day with Highlights and Lowlights

Day 1- Tuesday, February 2

This was pretty much a day of travel and eating haha

The anticipation of Hawaii
Our first Shave Ice in Hawaii
Getting upgraded to First Class
We ate at "Da Kitchen" which was authentic Hawaiian food

Waking up at 4 am for our plane
Our tickets were lost and our reservation for the plane was gone

Day 2- February 3

We went on a boat tour at Sunrise and got to go to a Private Beach. Where we could snorkle, lay out, and play beach Volleyball. They fed us delightful food and then took us whale/dolphin watching. We finished the day at Cheeseburgers in Paradise which was average. haha

The weather
Snorkeling for the first time
Seeing over 100 Dolphins
Beautiful Private Beach

Getting sea sick and losing my lunch over the back of the boat
Drinking Ginger Root
Pictures of me in a bathing Suit?
Burning and not tanning

Day 3- Thursday

Today was relaxing day, all the guys (except Jake) went scuba diving. Us girls worked out by the pool. Then we all went and beach bummed it all day. Ate dinner at Hula Grill.

A day at the beach all day

First taste of the drink Lava Flow (pina coloda with fresh strawberry mix)
First taste of Hula Pie mmm

Family drama that night

Having to hash out said family drama haha

Day 4- Friday (My parent's anniversary)

We hiked to blowhole, which was incredible. Went home and got all glam to take family pics on the beach. Followed by celebrating my parents 33rd anniversary at Leilani's.

There was definitely some low moments, but in all honesty it wasn't bad. We were in Paradise for 8 days and not worrying about diets or how many drinks we consumed. It was a trip of a lifetime and I won't ever forget it! Mahalo, Hawaii. Thanks mom and dad!
