We went to Oahu, Hawaii a couple of years ago and I wasn't very impressed. I had this entirely different image of Hawaii in my mind. Although we had fun, I didn't really want to go back. When we decided to plan our vacation this time, Christopher said he wanted to go to Maui. I was a little hesitant, but of course...gave in! Let me tell you that I am SOO glad I did! It was BEAUTIFUL!!! It is completely different than Oahu! I had so much fun on this trip! We asked my parents to come with us and it was so much fun hanging out with them! The first day we were there we hung out at the beach mostly. The next day we did the infamous drive to Hana. It was way pretty, but really, REALLY long and the roads were really twisty. It was worth it though. We went to the seven sacred pools, the red sand beach (which we almost died trying to hike to!) and saw a lot of whales along the way! The next day we walked along the shops and hit the beach again. We were planning on going whale watching the next day, but low and behold...Christopher got food poisoning! He was so sick all day! My parents decided to fly to Oahu for the night so they could spend valentines Day over there and visit my Great, Great Grandpas grave and so I was left with sicky! On valentines Day, Chris was feeling much better which was a good thing because we had already made arrangements to go on a helicopter tour of the island! We originally were going to go on a 30 min. tour but the company needed two thinner people for a 1 hour flight and we were the big winners! It was one of the coolest things I have done! Maui is AMAZING! Afterwards we went snorkeling and body surfing and then cleaned up and went to a luau. The food there was so yummy! I had such a great time and the weather was so perfect that I didn't want to leave! It was nice coming home and seeing my babies though! Here are some of many pictures that we took.

I LOVE this picture of my parents!
