I got to go to Maui for almost an entire week during Thanksgiving with my dad, Kris, and Janelle. Zack was so awesome - he pretty much talked me into going and happily stayed home with the kids. It was hard not to feel guilty, leaving Bromfield for paradise and relaxing and having so much fun. But my mother-in-law, Nancy, flew in to help Zack and my mom also helped a bunch. So it took a team. I am so thankful that I got the chance to take a break and enjoy myself for a few days. The weather couldn't have been better, in the 80's.
When I saw families swimming together though, I really missed my fam. Next vacation will have to be a family one!!
These uploaded out of order - oh well!!
On one of our last days, we got to go on a tour boat, out to the island of Lanai. On the way, we saw whales, and also a big pod of dolphins. Then, we stopped to snorkel in the ocean on the way.

The 4 of us, in the front of the pic, snorkeling by a coral reef. We still got in, even though they literally had just announced a shark attack on the radio of the boat right before!

Meanwhile, back in Broomfield….
The kids had a blast with Gigi and Dada. They went to see Frozen, went to birthday parties, Starbucks, parks, all sorts of fun places. And then their other Grandma came and spent two days with them. They had it pretty good. :) Zack did a great job taking care of them. I missed them.
