Jason and I took some friends with us this year, and it was so much fun! We all left our kids for 8 days and flew across the Pacific to enjoy some adult time--- and it was SO nice.
We did a lot of hanging out at the beach, but also spent a day driving to Hana. We stopped and introduced them to Coconut Glen's non-dairy ice cream. I dream about this stuff, so it definitely makes the LONG drive worth it. (And the mosquito bites. I got bit about 5 times while this picture was being taken!)
We found some gorgeous waterfalls, and got out to swim in a few of the pools. They were COLD, but after a minute felt so good. I love that about these pools.
We ate some FABULOUS food. As always. But it's always exceptionally fabulous when we go to the Tommy Bahama restaurant in Wailea.
And Jason is always happy when he can have lilikoi crème brulee.
(It was fabulous.)
We watched some FABULOUS sunsets. (I'm going to stick with the word fabulous, just cause I'm in that kind of mood.)
We agreed that the ones at home are just as FABULOUS, but you know, we're in Hawaii so they're even better.
The boys were determined to work out every day, and ran on the beach and did cross fit.
(They looked fabulous.)
The girls were not as motivated.
(Sleep is fabulous.)
But we did do some hiking along the lava fields by La Parouse bay.
The morning we left I got up early to enjoy the solitude of our beach. It was......
(wait for it)
