We all got our mandatory sunburns around our second day in Maui. they were all pretty light except for Steve. He was doing the lobster imitation for a while but after a few rub downs of Miracle it converted into a nice tan.
Turns out Caleb-baby wasn’t much a fan of the water. Surprised me since he’s normally such a water baby with the bath tub and swimming pools. Something about the waves kinda threw him for a loop.
He loved hanging out on the beach with his Daddy and watching everything.
Doodlebug adored making what she referred to as “mud castles” and dancing in and out of the waves as they rolled in.
Our wonderful host family’s oldest daughter was super sweet and kind to Doodles during our visit. From dressing her up and doing makeup…
She also hung out with her and took walks on the beach.
It’s a pretty rare thing to run into tweens who are authentically nice, kind individuals with genuine sweetness and care of others. Bri was a joy to be around. Helpful, intuitive and friendly. It just so happens that this week she turns 11! Happy Birthday Bri! Thanks so much for everything you did that made our Maui vacation special. Doodles was especially blessed to be able to spend time with you. You are a beautiful girl from the inside out in every way.
Bri’s brothers were also Doodlebugs companions for the week. A and J were double fun and occasionally double trouble the whole time. It was fantastic for Doodles to hang out with some all-boy boys of the rough and tumble variety. Her excessive drama just did.not.fly with them and it was both funny and great to watch their worlds collide.
One of our favorite things to do as a family while we were in Maui was to walk the 1 block from our hosts family down to Kam1 Beach and watch the sunset.
