Maui was AMAZING!! I can't believe how beautiful it was! I loved everything about the trip, except for the early morning wake up calls, I'm sure Keith can tell you what a grouch I am in the morning! We had such a fun-filled week! Here are some of the highlights:

This was the view from our balcony

Ahhh, the ocean...this is heaven

The water was so clear and blue!

Windsurfing was really cool to watch!

On the way to Hana, there were some awesome beaches with black sand

We got a glimpse of a Luau at a really fancy hotel!

I loved the palm trees!!! Especially while the sun was setting!

These are from the Aquarium

Still from the Aquarium, but I swear we saw the same fish when we went snorkeling! I think snorkeling was my favorite thing that we did; the clear water and all the beautiful fish were just paradise!

Tyler and I picked some fresh coconuts and a banana off of some trees in our resort

It took us forever to finally crack it, and it didn't taste very good, but it was still way cool!!

Finally, the tropical flowers!

I wish I could make arrangements like this!

Ok, Kaylene, this one is for you! This was the biggest and most delicious shave ice ever!

Side note: I found this online, this is us sprinting to the finish line at our half marathon!
