So we went to Maui…

Hope you all had a merry Christmas! We continued our Christmas tradition of going on tropical vacations paid for by our parents by going to Maui! This vacation brought to you by my marvelous parents:

They took all 10 of us to Maui for 9 days. Such generosity! Many thanks!

I have uploaded 97 pictures from the trip. It’s going to take me some time to post the other 96… A couple of my sisters have already uploaded their synopses to Facebook and done a lovely job. So, if you’re friends with them and are impatient, check out their albums. Otherwise, stay tuned.

I tried to get pictures of the amazing road out to Hana, but it’s hard to get a good picture from the midsection of a moving minivan in the occasional pouring rain. So just imagine a one lane road with hairpin turns with no visibility. And two way traffic. In a jungle. It was so cool!

Ken is pleased by the road and the jungle.

Lauren is also. Maybe?? Is that how she looks when she’s pleased?

After lunch we did some exploring of a couple of waterfalls. This required facilitation of Bekah’s jump off of a bank.

We also had to cross an aqueduct. Very adventurous!

Apparently Maui-ans need irrigation water. Sara is puzzled.

Sara steels herself for a plunge into the irrigation source.

Apparently it was chilly.

It was sort of a scramble to get to the pool.

Lots of lava tubes around. This one was just hanging out under a bridge on the highway.
