Amazing Maui

We've had a few very busy days- but still feeling very relaxed!  I don't want to leave- EVER. (ha!)

This vacation has been such a dream- the people are so nice here and Jon, Arie, and I are having a blast!  Here is a list of things we've been up to the last few days:

-Kapalua Bay Beach
-Snorkeling, whale watching, turtle watching, trip to Molokini Crater
-Shopping and sight seeing in Wailea (Ritzy area of Maui)
-Iao Valley Park
-Checking Lahaina out....awesome arts scene! AND the Banyan tree is crazy huge!

Aurelia even came snorkeling with us!  They had a little board especially for babies and folks who weren't comfortable with the snorkel gear.  The crater was fun- although the variety of fish wasn't there, it was still a great experience.  We saw a few whales--a calf and a momma whale too!  The sea turtles are so magical....when they went back in the water, Arie said, "Where'd they go???"  It was adorable. 

The beaches here are amazing!  The clarity of the water is unbelievable.  At Kapalua Bay, there were people snorkeling right off the beach. 

We went to the Iao Needle and hiked around the park there.  It was amazing to me to see such lush forest after a 5 min drive from the ocean. 

Last night, we went to the Old Lahaina Luau.  Aurelia was just having a ball!  She loved the dancers and even tried to do the hula as she watched.  She met a little boy named Charlie at the next table and flirted with him a bit.. it was his 2nd birthday. 

I could write so much more, but I should really get back to Arie and Jon :)

Here are a few photos:

Today we're not sure what we're going to do.... maybe baby beach so Arie won't be too scared....the Maui Ocean Center?
