A pretty perfect week with our darlings Meghan and Ben with sweet babytb Vicchio! Clear skies and warm sand plus a phone app that enables frosty adult beverages to be delivered directly to our chairs.. helped create a lovely relaxing week of Aloha. We are already hotly anticipating our 2018 family Maui trip ( already booked) with 6 adults and THREE kiddos! Enjoy the quiet bliss while you can. Aloooo ha!
We arrived to our beautiful Island yesterday and are settling in quite nicely. Each trip to Hawaii brings special moments and memories for our family. In the 80’s Coming as a couple on vacation, company events in the 90’s, traveling with friends a few times but most of all,our True and cherished times will always be here with our girls. From teenagers lounging under plumeria trees and complaining about dropping blossoms to young women bringing boyfriends along, to grown women with fabulous husbands we are wrapped up in the joyful “reconnecting Aloha” only a family vacation can bring.
When Brian and I decided that Maui was a yearly must do ( 16 years ago) and bought these three Ocean front weeks at Westin Villas in Kaanapali , we joked that “someday maybe grandkids!”. Life is so sweet and true. We are missing Erin, Eric and Jacks this year because of pending ANYDAY new baby arrival. Erin is under strict conditions not to have baby until our arrival home April 1 ( she is due on 13th) and since they traveled to Disney Hawaii resort in January on Babymoon, we are not feeling too bad . We are also celebrating here with Meghan and Ben ! We found out just yesterday as they emerged off of plane from Scottsdale .. the gender of their new September grand baby ! They both wore pink and blue leis and greeted Brian and I by putting correct lei on us ! No telling yet.. they will reveal soon…we are overjoyed with their news. One extraordinary and most beloved Jacks plus Two new grandBabies in 2017.. and a condo or two full of grandbabies next year. Almost like Brian and planned it!! Haha.
As we flew in, gate was not ready so pilot took us on a lower flyover around Haleakala and Hana. Areas unseen unless in air. Note the centuries old lava flows. A beautiful welcome to our Island.
