Maui Wowie

We went on a trip to Maui in January! Here are the details...
Justin received an awesome award at work... Peak Achievement Award. People are nominated by other co workers and then selected by senior leaders. It is about 200 employees of the thousands across the entire company of TMobile. It really is a huge deal, once in a lifetime award and was such a big honor for Justin. By far this is the biggest award you can receive at TMobile! Justin is so modest but this really was great recognition for the amazing hard work he puts in at Tmobile.
So the reward for the award... an all expense paid trip to Maui for 2!!! Luckily Justin picked me to go with him.... So we made plans for Jackson to be in great hands and Justin and I packed for 6 nights away from home. This was the longest we had been away from Jackson... luckily it did not phase him one bit! He stayed with Mimi and Poppy and really enjoyed his time.

We were treated fabulously while in Maui. We stayed at the Sheraton Maui Resort, were greeted with new shade from Maui Jim on the second day and fed great meals all week. We got to go on a snorkel and sailing excursion and also a traditional Luau. We also rented a jeep and made the journey to Hana down a winding road through the rain forest. It was perfect! The weather in Maui was about 80 degrees each day. We loved every moment and truly relaxed. This time of year is special in Maui as it is Whale season... yes... humpback whales travel from Alaska to Maui each January through March. It was so fun to see them just flopping around in the water about 100 yards off the shore. Not to mention a few other fun events- a wonderful dinner out (date night in Maui rocks), Justin "cliff jumping" and lots of time by the pool.

This was a once in a life time experience that we will never forget!
Of course baby J was with us... I was 26 weeks pregnant on this trip- we did great!
