Hawaii Vacation

James and I left the girls with my parents (thank you!) and went to Maui Hawaii for a week! It was sooo beautiful and relaxing. We had such a great time. We also celebrated out 9 year anniversary while we were there. Wow time goes by fast!
Our condo was right by the ocean. We had an amazing view from our patio it was so gorgeous. We did a lot of snorkeling and got to swim right next to some huge sea turtles! It was so awesome.

James had a blast snorkeling and body boarding. One day the waves were huge and he was playing in them all day until his board broke!
I loved just laying on the beach reading a book!

"The Road to Hana" this is a windy long road that drives through the tropical rainforest of Maui. There were so many beautiful sites to see including a black sand beach and huge waterfalls! One of which James and I jumped off of.


These are called "Rainbow Trees" they were so cool!
Climbing through the bamboo to get to some waterfalls.
This was the night James and I decided to follow a trail that went over some rocks and then opened up to a beautiful little beach. We sat down on the rocks and started watching the sunset and noticed some surfers. As they got closer we realized the were nude surfers!! AAHHH little did we know we had wondered onto an unofficial nude beach. Pretty embarrassing!

Best snow cones in the world! The "Local Boys" put ice cream in the bottom and yummy cream on top they were to die for. We ate one like every day we were there!
The sunsets were spectacular. They all looked like a postcard!

We went to the "Drums of the Pacific Luau" it was so incredible. The food was great but the entertainment was even better. They had an amazing show with fire dancers and everything. We loved every minute.
