Last month V and I went on our babymoon.  When I first mentioned it he had no idea what it was.  Who doesn't know what a babymoon is?! Craziness.  Since it involved traveling he was good to go.  We hadn't taken a vacation since our trip to TangierMorocco last summer so we were long over due.  We settled on Maui since we had a ton of points to use for our flight and hotel.  We stayed at the Sheraton Maui.  The room was nice but pretty standard.  I'm used to nicer resort rooms.  My favorite one so far has been Excellence Playa Mujeres.    I loved it there!

The weather was nice while we were there.  We relaxed, enjoyed time on the beach and the pool.  I am not drinking (obvi!) so I settled for fruit smoothies and juices by the pool.  I usually avoid drinking by the pool anyway because I get super bloated, but this time it didn't really matter.  Maui was nice and relaxing not as pretty as I thought it would be but nice regardless.  We drove up Mt. Haleakala and we hiked.  People recommend driving in for the sunrise or sunset but we went around 10 AM.  It's  like a 2.5 hour drive.  You're 10,000 feet above sea level once you're up there so driving through the clouds was pretty cool but kind of scary.  We drove the road to Hana, a registered historic place, and stopped along the way to see the waterfalls and the different landscapes.  On the way there the first stop was in Paia and we stopped by the Paia Fish Market and the mahi-mahi burger was delicious! The food was really good and not as expensive as I thought it was going to be.  We also loved Kimo's in Lahaina.  Overall we had a great time.  There were so many families and babies so we are definitely excited to take Baby K on a trip next year.
