On a Monday in February, Ben said he needed a vacation. He had been working crazy hours starting his bankruptcy work for the past few months. That day I started looking around, and found a great deal to Maui leaving in just four days. I couldn't get a hold of Ben but I booked it anyway!
I was asked quite a few times why we took the kids. One reason was because Ben was working so much he didn't get to see them often. So going on vacation was the perfect way to spend some quality time. Plus, we knew they would love it and have been talking about taking a family vacation to Hawaii this year. We just didn't realize it would be so last minute.
We were in Maui for just over 5 days, and it was a lot of fun. The weather could have been better - it was a bit windy. But we still loved it!
