But for today I wanted to answer a few questions in yesterday's comments. Do you love how I answer questions in my posts instead of in the actual comments? If you ask a question, do you check back in the comments for the answer? I would forget, so I assume everyone else would too. Ha! Probably not so. I need to work on answering questions in the comments. Further my quest to become a real blogger. Do you also love how I get so sidetracked and can't stay on the topic at hand? :) Back to the questions - several of you asked where we stayed in Maui. We own a week each year at the Westin Villas in Ka'anapali, Maui. That is why we vacation in Maui so much. Yes. It's an amazing place to stay and I would totally recommend it for a family vacation! The villas are huge (like mini houses with full kitchens and washers and dryers) and we love that we have a room seperated from the kiddos. The timeshare thing was a perfect solution for us because we wanted to make family vacations a priority, but we can sometimes be too practical and were afraid we wouldn't travel because it's so expensive, so much work with the kids, etc. This way we have something set every year. We can go to Maui, or trade and stay in other amazing places like when went to Cancun with my family two years ago. We can also use points (part of the timeshare system) and stay in Westin hotels all over the world. We did that for our ten year anniversary and went to Italy. You have options! Optionality is my favorite word. :) Anyway, if anyone is interested in learning more I'd be happy to answer questions. Just send me an e-mail - my link is to the right.
A few more beach pictures...
But the water in Maui is incredible and this trip, I felt like a little kid again! Swimming and splashing in the waves.
And yes Traci! Those are Ka'anapali waves!
They are huge!
Ahhh...yes. It was an amazing vacation. And now. Reality. My friend Shari commented yesterday "Re-entry is brutal. Hang in there." Man is that ever the truth! The last few days have been crazy trying to unpack and get back on top of things. We are still on Maui time going to bed too late and NOT wanting to get up in the morning. Yesterday I did manage to go grocery shopping.
Got all of my healthy snacks washed and ready to go. Felt good about that. On today's to-do list?
Good times around here.
Have a great Wednesday and if you have a minute check out Jen's fun blog! You'll just love it. :)
