Aloha! The Izzards are on vacation! We left San Diego yesterday morning at 7 a.m. and arrived in Maui at 9:40 a.m. The kids were absolutely perfect on the flight and received many compliments! Mahalo!
Our vacation started off with a LONG wait at the airport for our rental car (GMC Terrain) but once the (rental) carseats were finally installed we were on the road! Jackson kept asking everyone if they were going to Maui...after a quick lesson on cities, states, islands, etc. he figured it out.
Riley is the best baby and never cries except for...long car rides! She cries so hard it makes me cry. I finally sat squished between both kids and she calmed down. Luckily today's trip up to the volcano didn't seem to bother her and we stuck to her feeding schedule -- every 2 hours. I only sat squished for half of the journey.
Jackson is LOVING being on the beach and cries (ok throws a fit) when we leave.
Our first stop in Lahaina was at Cheeseburger in Paradise which was where Jackson ate his first piece of pineapple at 6 months old. Can't believe that was less than three years ago and now we are back with our little girl!
We are so happy to be back here and at a condo because it makes it easier with the kids. We are able to make a lot of our meals instead of eating out for everything. Plus having a washer and dryer is huge when you have an infant! Especially one who likes to spit up!
I love waking up to the sounds of the ocean and seeing sea turtles bob their heads in the waves all from our top floor balcony or bedroom window. Can we retire here...now?!
