Maui you have my heart.....

:)  Love love love this place!  Who wouldn't?!?!
Truly the best vacation we have ever had.
We played here every day for 5 days:

Our condo at the Maui Kai was wonderful.  We will be staying their when we go back - oh yes we will be going back.  It was steps from the ocean - like you step off the steps in to the sand - the sound of the waves as you fall asleep truly can't be beat.  We ALL slept like babies.   

Every morning we would wake up and hang out on our lanai - drinking coffee - looking for the whales - they were all over - it was awesome!!  The picture below was taken from our lanai (not a zoom lens)

We went to The Feast at Lele - which was a terrific show - a must do if you find yourself in Maui!  Worth every penny!

This is where it was located - outside on this beach - LOVE!!

We tried foods that we wouldn't normally have ordered because it is a set meal - a 5 course meal!!!  We ate so much food (there is a reason it is called the FEAST at Lele) and it was all so very good.  Even Xander tried every single thing that was presented (and he is one of the pickiest eaters)

The performances were so terrific - just a really cool night!

The Road to Hana was just beautiful - the scenery is really breath taking.

The snorkeling was just too cool - a first for me, Connor and Macey - and it was AWESOME!!!  I almost chickened out and didn't go - I am so glad I did - I struggled at first getting the whole goggles to fit right and then they kept fogging up and I drank a little salt water - but I finally got it figured out and I loved it!  So did the kids! (Xander just didn't have it figured out so he skipped it)

Xander loved the boogie boarding - so did Connor!

The whale watching was beyond cool - a baby whale and a mama came right up to the boat (too close for the crews taste).  We saw LOTS of whales!  So cool!

Truly the best!  We LOVE Maui!

This is just one tree - a banyan tree - so flippin cool!!!
