I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaack... unfortunately

Don't ask me why.... but we came back from Maui. Crazy, I know! I wish I could live there and be on vacation full time, ha ha! But I'm happy to say that we had the best week! We've been planning this family trip for over 2 years and there were only 2 downsides. The first, Trevor and Alycia weren't able to make it :( We missed you guys! Having adult responsibilities is the worst, ha. And the second, we weren't thinking when we booked the trip and we only got 1 rental car. Eric and I definitely needed our own car, but you live and learn!
We stayed at a beach front hotel and loved every second of it. It was amazing to walk down the path and be on the beach! We explored a lot and spent more than enough time at the beach. I'm STILL finding sand in odd places, ha ha. The worst part of the trip was definitely the red eye flight home. I thought I'd be tired enough from playing that I'd sleep the whole way but NOPE! There is just no possible way to get comfortable on those awful planes. If only I could afford first class :) I was so dang tired after our flight that I curled up on the nasty LAX floor and took a nap during our lay over. Speaking of lay overs... those suck pretty bad. The airlines changed our flight plan just a couple weeks before the trip and added 4 hour lay overs in LA both ways. We are not happy customers. But enough complaining from me! I can't wait to share our experiences.... but until then here are a couple pictures of heaven!

The view from our balcony. Waking up each morning and eating breakfast was the BEST! So beautiful.
One stretch of our beach. We played on the stretch that wasn't rocky :)
The island across the ocean from our beach, but I don't know which island it is :)
The path leading from our hotel to our beach. I wanna go back!

P.S. No sunburns for me... woo hoo!

I have grown up visiting the islands 2-3 times each year since I was little and Maui is my favorite. I can tell exactly where you stayed and what beach you were at..creepy?! HA HA. Anyways, I love Maui. We went for our honeymoon and want to go back! Maybe a med school graduation present?!?
