Mahalo Maui!!

Well, I'm finally getting around to posting some pics of our Maui trip. As expected, it was incredible. What an amazing place!! We had such a great time with my Mom & Dad and my brother Cory and his wife Lisa. We spent the large majority of our time snorkeling, boogie boarding, site seeing, and eating. Here are a bunch of pictures to prove it. Enjoy!

One of the "Twin Falls" on the Hana Road.

Pretty amazing spider. We saw several of these while there.

A view of a sacred pond from inside the "Garden of Eden".

These trees were amazing! We couldn't believe how vivid the colors were. They really looked like they had been painted.

My hottie by the pool....

Pic of Mom and Dad. The scene behind them was in one of the opening scenes of Jurassic Park.

Me in front of a small waterfall.

Me doing what I loved the most.

Me with a few friends.

Me tormenting Mom with a dead crab.

Not a great place to surf, but a beautiful place to sightsee.

We had a lot of fun boogie boarding, but some of the waves beat us up!

Playing in the surf.

Me and Ame in the Garden of Eden.

Me and my Pappy!

Playin' on the lava rocks.

Mama's Fish House was expensive, but the food, setting, and service was great!

There were some incredible plants.

This was taken by a GREAT snorkeling spot in Mekena.

Me going down for a closer look at something.

Lisa (my sis-in-law) french-kissing a parrot.

This guy made hats and baskets out of palm reeds. Pretty profitable business!

All of us at the Pupu Lounge at sunset.

My Bay Watch dad!

Not bad chocolate....we didn't ask what the special ingredients were....
