Hawaii Part 3

Today, I'm showing the last of the pictures from our trip.  There were too many to put into one post, so I figured I'd break up the posts a bit.  I know it's picture overload, so if you're not into pictures, come back another day.  ;)  

Emma was enjoying Island life.  #likemotherlikedaughter 

In all fairness, so was this other girl of mine.  She actually had tears when it was time to leave Saturday night.  Dan had to laugh, because I'm always close to tears when it's time to leave Hawaii as well.  So I guess both girls take after their mother.  :)

Now that they've been to Hawaii, and have seen how fun it is, it's going to be a lot harder to leave them home next time.  Haha! 

We did have some strong winds a couple of days that we were over there, so here I am laying out looking at the beach covered up in a towel... because sometimes even Hawaii isn't warm enough for me.  #imawimp

We mixed it up a bit this trip and instead of staying at the Westin like we normally do, we decided to stay at the Marriott Maui Ocean Club.  We stayed in a 1 bedroom condo, and loved it.  It worked out so good for our family, having the extra room.

Before we checked out of our hotel, I told my family we had to have a family picture.  There was lots of whining, and I just flat out told them that someday I won't be around and they'll be thankful that I made them stand still for a picture.  

 Glasses on...
 Glasses off.

Gracie wanted to take a couple of pictures, so I made Dan take a walk and let her get a few shots in.  Doesn't he look thrilled.  Haha!

She loves her Daddy, no matter how old she gets!


 We watched the sunset, and then we loaded up our stuff and left the island.

I am so thankful for the week that we got to spend as a family.  The memories we made, and the time we had to ourselves.  It was a perfect getaway, and even though it's snowing here at home, it's good to be back.
