Unfortunately, Livy will probably only get to where those cute little red shoes only that one time because her feet have grown two sizes in what seems like 1 week.

Maui Trip

Scott and I just got back from a week in Maui and it was such a wonderful time! I have to admit it was a little hard leaving the girls behind but we really needed a truly relaxing vacation. It’s such a luxury to be able to do things that we truly want to do without worrying if it will be fun for the girls. We loaded our vacation up with driving around the island taking in the absolute beauty of it all, snorkeling, Parasailing, lots of eating overindulgent meals, spear fishing (Scott), spa time, and reading/sun bathing.

On our first full day, we took a drive down memory lane of the day we got married. We ate breakfast at Longhi’s where I had breakfast with my Mom and sister’s the morning before our wedding, we drove down to the beach where we said our vows, and ate dinner at the restaurant where we had our reception. We didn’t plan it but it was so much fun!

Scott convinced me to go parasailing as well which was quite an adventure. I had never been and I can’t imagine a better place to do it. We also spent a day doing our own thing because I’m not a spearfisher and prefer the spa. Scott loves it and though it wore him out, I know he wishes he could do that all the time.

On our way waiting for our plain in LA at the United Club. We ran into Neil Patrick Harris there as well:

I started using instagram here at the airport for the first time and my phone isn’t so great at taking clear pics:

As soon as we landed, we drove straight to Paia to Paia Fish Market:

And then went to watch the wind surfers:

We started our meal at Mala’s with this sashimi dish which makes my mouth water just thinking about it:
Yum!!

We drove half way to Hana and also drove through the Iao Valley which was breathtaking:
