Maggie Makes Four!

This journal started off documenting the adoption of our youngest daughter. It now follows the twist and turns of our lives as we raise these two amazing little creatures into the best women they can become.

Maui Madness

When the going gets tough, in our house, the tough go to Hawaii. With everything going on, a trip to Maui that we planned many months ago was a welcome break. We haven't been to Hawaii since BC (before children). While the bar tab was cheaper and we only gazed at the golf courses from afar, we still had a great time. We spent most of the week in a condo in Napili, then we moved onto the lap of luxury, the Grand Wailea, for our last weekend. Here are the most memorable moments:

10.) The Magster and La Nina doing the hula at a luau.
9.) The Magster getting wiped out by a wave and laughing hysterically. (The Dad was next to her when it happened, so she was safe.)
8.) La Nina getting up at 4:30am the first morning of our vacation and asking when the pool opened.
7.) Seeing turtles swimming in Napili Bay....the girls loved them.
6.) Pulling up to the Grand Wailea with grocery bags, sand toys and sticky fingered children, I swear I heard a Hawaiian version of the Beverly Hillbillies begin playing in our honor.
5.) Eating ice cream with the girls on a bench under the Banyan tree in Lahaina.
4.) The aquarium in Maui. Fabulous.
3.) The pool at the Grand Wailea. All of us enjoyed the slides and sandy bottomed children's pool.
2.) Seeing the ocean whenever we looked West, hearing the waves...always mesmerizing.
1.) The Magster peeing beside of the pool at the Grand Wailea (cue the banjoes again) and saying, "Mommy, I don't need to go potty, I just go here." Lovely!

La Nina quote of the week:
"Mommy, I thought you said we could stay at the pool for a long time." (She made this statement after being in the water for 3.5 hours without a break.)

Magster quote of the week:
"I want to be a hula dancer when I growed up, but not a boy hula dancer...a girl hula dancer."

With all the sun and swimming, the kids ate well, slept well and were generally enthralled with a place where they could wear flip flops 24X7. La Nina summed up the week when she said, "I like this place better than Disneyland." I hope we can go back again soon.
