S: OurOur Maui Vacation 2011
BC: Mahalo Nui Loa, we'll be back!
FC: Aloha from Maui
1: 8, going on 16! | This is the first time we actually purchased airline tickets. (ouch) We wanted to make sure we got there since we were sharing a room with Janet & Nicole. Before flying into Kahului, we non-rev'ed into Portland and spent 2 days with Aunt Shalice & Uncle Jeff. | SLC - PDX Aug 6, 2011 | PDX - OGG Aug 8, 2011
2: Kayaking on the Tualatin River | Sweet Tessa | what a beautiful place to live | Portland, Oregon
3: Rockaway Beach | Site of Uncle Jeff's nightly burn-fest | Feeding the neighbors sheep
4: Dancing to live music at Cheeseburger in Paradise, wearing Forrest Gump's shoes, | climbing the biggest Banyan Tree in Hawaii, and catching a sunset on Front Street in Lahaina
5: Making lei's, shopping, and walking Heart Beach before breakfast
6: pool fun
8: Renting a boogie board for Kevin was the best $15 we spent, he had a blast on it everyday!
9: Snorkeling with the turtles at Napili Bay was amazing! We rented an underwater camera, very cool!
10: We bought the tickets at Costco - $75 for me, $40 each for the kids
11: A Luau at The Grand Wailea
13: Mom's dolphin call worked again! There were about 40 spinner dolphins who stayed with us for a long time. The crew said that their bellies were pink because they were excited by all the noise we were making. | Sunset Sail | Tickets from Costco $99. for me $79. each for the kids.
14: The Kaanapali Beach Club never lets us down, we love this place. We stopped at Costco to fill the frig so we only ate one meal out per day. The pool is awesome, the beach is perfect and the customer service is great. Plus, we got two free breakfast buffets per day for being return customers!
16: The natives getting restless in the car | Kevin's special bed | "Fred's" yummy Mexican in Kihei
17: We stopped for fresh air on the way to the hotel, at The Maui Ocean Center (Sydney was car sick) | The picture of Hawaii; Puka shell necklace, hemp tatoo, leather bracelet, ukelele and a boogie board
18: Janet & Nicole's flight was 10 hours later than ours, so we had to say "goodbye". They ended up staying another night because the flight was oversold. Our journey home was lengthy... we had confirmed seats into Portland and Non-Rev'ed home from there. Everything was oversold so we had to stay in a hotel for one night in PDX and another night at Uncle Jim's in LGB. Finally got home on the 3rd day using our S2 passes. Dad almost got in the car to come pick us up..So much for airline benefits!
