Last Few Days on Maui

Thursday, June 1, 2017

The last two days on Maui were low key, we went whale watching again hoping we would see a breaching whale...we did not. And then we went and got our favorite shave ice on the planet... Ululani's Shave Ice. By far the best shave ice! We went back to the hotel to change and then headed to Kapalua Beach to play in the sand. Alana really didn't like the water too much but once she started to play in the sand we couldn't get her out!

Our next day was really about sleeping in, packing and getting ready to leave (we had a red eye flight to San Francisco). Luckily we had a late check-out and only had a wander around a few hours before we treated ourselves to one last Hawaiian activity, the Old Lahaina Luau. We thought that Alana would enjoy the music and dancing and she did for a little while but looking back it was just too late for her and she needed to get to bed.

Matt went and sat in the car with her while I watched more of the show. We stayed there until almost the end and then headed to the airport.

Overall the trip was an experience. We got to take Alana to Maui for free since she was still 2, we got to stat at the Ritz Carlton for free using points and had an amazing upgrade! While we love to travel I think we will let Alana get a little older before taking her on another big trip like that again. We'll be road tripping and keeping things a little closer to home for the next few years; plus we want her to appreciate the travel!
