Vacation, all I ever wanted

Although it has been awhile since I posted last, not much has happened in our family. K2 is now six, S turned eight and got baptized and K1 and I celebrated our 10th anniversary.

What a celebration it was. K1 told me he planned a trip for us to Vegas for a week, he already cleared the time with his parents to stay with our kids. I was very excited, but wondered what we could be doing in Vegas for a week. He was very excited and asked me to not read his emails (I only do this when he is out of town and needs me to).

The day came for us to leave, and it started like any other day. I went to the gym, took S to school and finished packing. My father-in-law took us to the airport and off we went to Vegas. Once we arrived in Vegas K1 handed me a anniversary card and at the bottom it said "Let's go somewhere else, gate D32". So with a smile on my face I headed to gate D32, once there I found out we where flying to LA, still unsure of our exact plans, I got off the plane in LA and K1 was talking to some guy (I forgot his name, he use to play basketball for BYU and then the Celtics and now he is on the management team for the Celtics.) Anyway, we were walking and talking with this guy and he asked K1 what we are doing in LA and K1 said "we are on our way to Maui" To which I responded "we are?" and I think I might have jump for joy a little. See, I have never been to Hawaii and ask K1 all the time when we can go, because he has an Aunt and Uncle that live on Maui. Well, today was my day and I boarded another plan and landed in Maui that night. We did stay at his Aunt and Uncle's home and they even let us borrow a car for the week. There home or compound as some have called it, is beautiful. We spent the next week exploring the whole island via; car, boat, paddle boards, hiking and snorkeling. We got to watch the whales and K1 even got in the water to swim by them. We ate at some great restaurants and enjoyed getting to hang out some with Lisa and Wendell. Maui is a beautiful place and so green. We saw rainbows almost ever day. But as the saying goes, "all good things must come to an end". K1 did a great job planning and keeping it a secret from me. I can not wait to see what he plans for our 20th.

Hope you enjoy the pictures. Sorry there are so many, this isn't even all of them.
