Aloha!!! Recap of our Trip to Maui Part 1!

Good morning!!!  Well I promised you a recap of my recent trip to Hawaii so here it is!  We have been thinking about taking a family trip to Hawaii for a few years now and it was finally time to turn this idea into action!  We decided that since we would just be there for one week, we would just stay in Maui the whole time so we didn’t have to do any more traveling when we got there!  

My husband had a bachelor party in Chicago the weekend we had planned to leave for Hawaii so he headed up there Thursday while I stayed in Nashville until my flight early Saturday morning.  I took a 4 and a half hour flight to LA then connected on a 5 hour flight to Maui.  It was a longggg day!  But Maui is 5 hours ahead of Nashville so it was just one really long day.  I made it until 8 pm (2 am Nashville time) then I passed out hard.  

My dad and little brother arrived a week before us so they picked me up at the airport with a lei! 🙂  We headed to the condo we rented for the week, which was right on the beach. 🙂

After unpacking I got to spend some time with my favorite 10 year old. 🙂

After a little while we took a short little walk on the beach.  The weather was amazing the entire time we were there!

My husband, sister and her boyfriend arrived later Saturday night.  I was already asleep by the time they got in.  With the early bed time and the time change, I was up at 5 am the next day.  We slept with the windows open and awoke to the waves cravings.  It was so peaceful.

Sunday during the day we just hung out at the beach.  Aren’t my siblings the cutest? 🙂

The boys.  My little brother really loves having my husband and my sister’s boyfriend around.  They love to play video games and do boy stuff with him. 😉

Sunday night we had plans to go out to dinner before our evening activity.  We chose Mala Ocean Tavern and it did not disappoint.  I got a teriyaki dish with rice, veggies and fish.  

We caught the beautiful sunset outside the restaurant before we left.

After dinner we headed over to the Hyatt Regency for the Tour of the Stars.  We got to go on top of the building and see all the stars through the huge telescopes.  We even got to see the international space station flying by while we were up there!  It was really a neat thing to get to experience!

  1. Have you ever been to Hawaii?
  2. Where is one place you want to travel?
  3. Did you get to see the eclipse?
