Maui Wowie...

Ok, that title is not applicable at all, but it sounds cool! The only reason that title might work is because our waiter tonight was probably smoking Maui Wowie...but anyways. Ok, starting off rough.

Andrew and I have had a great time so far here in Maui on our 4 year anniversary trip. Hard to believe it's been that long. Boy, a lot has happened in that time, but here we are. Stronger then we were four years ago, closer with each other and with the Lord, two beautiful children later, and just beginning on our journey together.

We really do miss Noah and Jakey and wish they could be here with us...for about an hour, then we'd like some down time again. We keep seeing or doing things that we know the boys would love, and miss them like crazy. But it really is good for us to have time together with just the two of us, and no distractions. How often to couples take time to put their relationship first?


This picture is taken on "our" beach, the one right across the street from our resort. It's the perfect beach, snorkeling at both ends, the softest warm sand, and lots of space for everyone! It's the first thing we do every day is go and spend a few hours on the beach and in the water, snorkeling and swimming. Every day we've seen a few giant sea turtles....how cool! This morning I was swimming back and forth from end to end and on my second turn I met up with Andrew who was following a giant turtle!
We have been eating out every day...and loving it! Although that means we are eating way to much at every meal (and leftovers:) I LOVE the colors in this picture!

Posing by some flowers...I know, I know. Andrew with the tiki man by our pool! One thing we don't like about vacationing alone is we never are in any pictures together!

Here I am outside our resort...gotta love a flower in the hair!

My handsome husband relaxing on the beach!



Here's a video to make you jealous, Mom and Dad!

This is what I'll leave you with, our beach...seriously, does it get any better then this?!? This is so beautiful!
