so we are back...we left august 23rd and came back on the 27th. We brought the kids to my parents the day before. I had been explaining to Jack all week about the plan but didn't know how it was going to play out! Sunday morning we got up super early and left, the kids were still asleep...i gave them kisses and sobbed all the way to the airport! It was sooooo hard leaving them but once we got to Maui and I knew they were okay I started my VACATION! Our friends Lisa and Mike had a later flight so once we checked in Rob and I headed to the pool for some drinks and tanning! Our hotel was wonderful and everything about the trip was great! We mostly relaxed by the pool but we did some fun activities as well. The boys scuba dived and saw amazing things like eel, sea turtles and actually held an octopus...Rob and I had a wonderful couples massage and the 4 of us went zip lining....that will be a separate blog....all in all we laid by the pool, ate, drank, laughed a lot, relaxed and had a great time. By Thursday I was definitely ready to come home and see my babies...I missed them so much but they had a great time with Grammy and Grampy. They kept very busy, i think they went swimming three times, went to the Long Beach aquarium, went to Chuck e Cheese, took walks, played in the backyard and had lots of fun. We owe a gigantic thank you to my parents, they are wonderful parents and grandparents and we are so grateful for them!!!
Here are some pictures but i will post some more tomorrow...i have sooooo many!!!
