We just had a great trip to Maui. Franz and I had a medical conference to go to, and we brought along the kids and Franz's mom to enjoy with us. We stayed at the Grand Wailea. It was a true vacation - so relaxing and enjoyable. The only negative - I lost my phone on the last day along with a bunch of great pictures - but I realized we still had plenty on our other devices.

The hotel was really nice (we just chose it b/c that was where the conference was - but we will definitely stay there next time!
|Looking the other way from our room|
We spent one day in Lahaina - shopping and shaved ice and an amazing Banyan tree!
Of course we spent most of our time at the pool/beach - Isabel loved it!
|Isabel got buried in the sand|
|So she got back at dad. :)|
|Franz was like a kid again boogey boarding|

We ate lots of good (but overpriced) food. Mmmmm, missing the fish already
|My Aunt Laura and Uncle Todd happened to be in Maui the|
same time as us and joined us for dinner!

We drove the Road to Hana halfway - the kids slept on the way out and then Izzie was car sick on the way back, so I am glad we didn't go for the whole thing! It was beautiful, though.

|Last stop - Paia for a stroll on the way to the airport.|
Isabel was sad to go, as you can see in the movie below...
