I Could Use A Little Hawaii Right Now...

As I sit typing this post about our dream vacation to Hawaii I am looking upon several inches of snow and fog thick enough to cause a three hour delay for me.  Yuck!  I need Hawaii...STAT! Lol!

Really, this summer we were given the most amazing gift of a dream vacation to Hawaii.  My parents had gone several years ago, and came back in love with the island.  Maui, to be specific.  I can't believe that it has taken this long to blog this trip, but life gets in the way and these fun tasks get pushed to the back burner.  I can't wait to share the pictures from our dream vacation!  For today, I will introduce you to our beautiful hotel, the Wailea Marriott Resort.  Paradise!

In Columbus...waiting for the shuttle to the airport.  We were so excited!!!

Mom and Dad made arrangements for us to have a Lei Greeting, which the kids loved!  We were soooo tired from the flight, but this kind of put the air back in our sails!

Our room...it was stunning!  So tropical, clean, and bright.  Although I have to say, we are spoiled by air conditioning.  This was the warmest room and we couldn't get it cool enough.  We finally went to Wal Mart and got a fan so we could sleep at night...lol! 

The view of the courtyard outside of our room.

One of the many pools...this one was closest to our room.

The hotel restaurant.  They had an amazing breakfast buffet, which was included in the package that Mom and Dad provided for us.  This was such a luxury for us, and definitely something we wouldn't have been able to indulge in otherwise.

A portion of the open air lobby in the hotel.

Bar area near the hotel restaurant.

More pics to come.  Now that I have started, I can't wait to show you more!  Actually, I just got the text that we have cancelled, so I just may get some more pics up today!
