Maui 2013

Blah, blah, blah, I just want to see the pictures...all 276 of them. Click here. For the rest of you, keep on reading! The trip was incredible! Brennan did great...he traveled well on the plane, and played really hard while we were there. His 1 1/2 hour naps in Bellingham translated to almost 3 hour naps in Maui, and we had to wake up him up every single day. He loves the beach.

Our typical day had us awake at various times; Brennan and Dada were usually first up around 6:00 or 6:30, and we'd all make our way to the beach for snorkeling, sunning, tide-pools, sand-castles, etc. We'd do that until lunch, eat, then B would go down for his power-nap.

Afternoons and evenings were different; resting, napping, shopping, markets, eating out, eating in, sometimes a second trip back to the beach, etc.

Below are a handful of my favorite pictures, along with a few captions to help out. Of course, click that link above to see all the pictures.

And he escaped...
We went on a little hike together

Dinner on the trail with Mama!

Taking a break
Nothing like Shave Ice after a good hike

Another trip to Shave Ice with Auntie K

Pool time was a favorite every day!

Playing "Dip, Dip, Doop" with Mama

Brave girls...it actually wasn't so bad.

One of B's new friends, "Sophia"

On the playground...an awesome playground where B showed off his new climbing skills

Of course, nothing beats just hanging on the beach

Last night dinner watching the sun go down...(ok, actually this was the 2nd to last night, but we did the same thing on the last night so really, same difference)

Now a few "non-people" pictures of some things that caught my eye...

Brennan Turns 3 (Pictures)

April 2nd Brennan turned 3 years old. As I've heard and said, "the days go by slow, but the years go by fast." His actual birthday was a Tuesday which I had off. We got up and I took him on a train ride...a real train! We rode the train from Bellingham down to Mount Vernon...he had a blast!

After that we took him to a park in Bellingham and let him open one of his presents; a T-ball set! (See pics). Then it was lunch at one of his favorite spots, Taco Lobo...yummy! After that it was nap, dinner with Grandpa and Grandma Greene, and then off to Menchie's for some self-serve frozen yogurt with all the fixin's.

Birthday #2 was his actual party on Saturday...it was in Bellingham at Julie's parents house and we had a full house with many from my family coming up to join. T-ball at the neighbors house, followed by spaghetti and cake and tons of fun.
