Maui...Enjoy the Pictures!!

So, I know there are so many pictures and I dont really know how to do the slideshows so I have spent an hour posting (I am being rude too...I am at my friends house doing it). Anyway, our trip was awesome. I saw some of the most beautiful sights ever. Scott and I had one adventure after another. We are so grateful to my parents for giving up their timeshare points and frequent flier miles to send us on this trip!!




Our first night in Hawaii. We stayed in Kihei the first two nights that we were there. We went for a walk on the beach after we got some food, our rental car and checked in at the hotel.

Our snorkel trip to a little island called Molekini. The sad thing was is there was so much wind that we couldnt get too close to the rocks or we could get crushed!! So, we still saw fish but not as many as we could have and we couldnt go to Turtle Town to see the turtles cause it would have been too cloudy! I also got sick on the way out there. I went a little crazy on the breakfast they provided for us and it caught up with me when we were close to the island. A little girl threw up and she walked passed me with throw up in her hair. I almost lost it then!




This little beach was amazing. Its called the Secret Cove. There was a couple that got married while we were there and at one point while they were taking pictures, the water came up so far so fast, they had to jump on the rocks and grab their wedding cake (I saw her underwear!!) There were these little crabs that kept poking their heads out of the sand. We were very enthralled with them and spent way to much time watching them fight!



On our little adventure this day we went to La Peruse Bay. It was so much fun, BUT the waves were HUGE! We were searching for the "best" snorkeling areas, and even had our XanGo snorkle set. Since the waves were too massive, and the rocks too sharp, we decided not to risk our lives to see pretty fish. We did get BURNED because we were hiking (for five hours) out in the hot sun.


Remember how I mentioned that we got burned. I bet you can imagine what Scotts tanline looked like. What he is walking in is Lava Rocks. We hiked a total of about 5 miles in that stuff. We were happy when we made it to our car.

Behind us you will notice a water shooting up. That is a super cool blow hole that shoots water up to 50 ft or so. It reminded me of Old Faithful. If you got close enough, the water could really get ya.


Just below this point there were these awesome Olivine Pools that we went swimming in. It was awesome cause we had water shooting around everywhere and were just sitting in rocks with calm, somewhat cold, water. I made Scott jump in first. I debated after he did, cause the rocks were slimey.


We won (only one) ticket to this cool, somewhat cheesy,magic show. Scott does a good job impersonating the magician. Scott got called up on the stage to help tie the assistant (magicians freaky looking wife) up. I think that Scott was checking her out!!


How crazy are we? We got up at 3:00AM to go watch the sunrise at the Haleakala Crater. It was really pretty but really cold.


Our Luau.

Our long road trip to Hana. It took us a total of 12 hours. It was a one time drive, but very worth it. Our last stop was the Seven Sacred Pools. We went swimming a little but it started raining and the water wasnt super warm. I am a wimp and got out. I didnt cliff jump either. I am gettin soft.



On the way back from Hana. We were wiped out.


Our hotel in Lahina. Thank Mom and Dad

Our last day! We enjoyed Bubba Gumps which was right on the water. There were little crabs right outside our window.

This was hilarious! Scott wanted a picture in the awesome looking creek. When he got where he wanted he was attacked by a swarm of Mosquitoes
