Island style

We're back from Hawaii, & had the absolute best time ever. We had a hard time getting the boys on the plane to go home. :-)

And, we came in just under budget. I'll have a more detailed budget post soon with all the details.

For now, here are a few pictures of the trip!

From our first day, we saw several double rainbows. It's kind of hard to make out in the picture, but there were two!

We were walking back from breakfast our first day, and the boys couldn't avoid the beach. They were transfixed by the blue sky & warm water, & waded right in!

Our fabulous hotel (and, more on this in a detailed post later!) Westin Maui Villas:

View from the pool at our hotel. That's the ocean in the background. We could easily go back & forth from the pool to the ocean in a 30 second walk.

The boys spent pretty much all of their time going back & forth between the ocean, the pool, & the hot tub. With, brief ventures to the bath tub to rinse off ALL of that sand. :-)
In short, it was a perfect vacation, & we're already trying to figure out how to budget for a trip next year.
Wishing you & your family a fabulous Thanksgiving (if you're in the US) tomorrow, and more later on the trip!
