Hawaii Trip - One week in

Happy St Patrick's Day! Actually it's pretty much over in my normal time zone but here in the Aloha State the green beer is still flowing! Greg and I got a date night tonight thanks to the wonderful babysitters we are travelling with (thanks Grandma and Grandpa!!) We went out sailing on a Sunset Cruise. SO much fun!! We even got to see some whales about 20' from the boat!! Unfortunately we seemed to always be on the wrong side of the boat whenever the whales decided to come in for their close ups! I haven't downloaded the pictures yet so have no idea if we got good ones or not. If so I will post them at a later date.

Here are some pictures of our trip so far ...

Our first morning - the Expedia briefing at the pool ...
... and our first evening meal together in our suite.

Day two - Marley took a sick day!
Fooling around.
Maui Tacos for lunch - yum!

Day three - the start of our usual routine. Beach in the morning ...
... "the camp" ...
... exploring sand for the first time.
In the afternoon we went into Wailea to check out the expensive shops ...
... and have an ice cream ...
... somebody LOVES frozen treats!
Usually we go to the pool in the afternoon but on Day four we went in the morning ...
... and then went to Lahaina in the afternoon. This is at a view point where we saw ...
... some whales! (I REALLY need a zoom lens!!)
In the Banyan tree in Lahaina.
With our Ululani Shaved Ices - YUM!!!
Paige took some time out from our walking explorations to catch some bubbles at Bubba Gump Shrimp. That black object on the red chair is the bubble machine - basically a good 20 or so wands attached to a rotating arm that takes them through the soap solution while being blasted with a fan. Quite ingenious really! Might have to try making something like that myself!

So that was our first 4 days here. Stay tuned for the next 4 ... including the Luau and a sunset cruise!!
