I wasn't sure how vacation was going to go - I hadn't envisioned our first vacation with Bella quite this way. She handled the very short flight (only 20 min) beautifully once she was propped comfortably on a pillow. She was also able to rest a lot in Maui, and we noticed her strength really start to return once we got back home a few days ago. I think the vacation was just what we ALL needed! Now we are refreshed and ready to face her other surgeries scheduled for this month, which I will post about later.
So rather than describe our week there in words, I'll let you see it for yourself :)
We've arrived! We stay at the same place every year, and this trip is much anticipated by all.
Beautiful sunsets. Never get enough of these.
Beautiful girls with flowers in their hair.
Some playground time with Daddy.
Maui Ocean Center - another annual favorite.
Nighttime walks through beautiful gardens to feed the fish.
Time for silliness, more silliness, and oh yes extreme silliness! The photo above is one of my favorites of the three kids - so representative of their individual personalities!
More swimming til we all pass out...
Another rare photo of all five of us.
