Hawaii 2007

What more do we have to say. A picture is worth a thousands words. Rebecca flew into Kaui on Monday and did a class for a local and then she flew over to Oahu to do a training for her team there. I showed up on Wednesday after she was done with "work" and we headed off to the Polynesian cultural center on the other side of Oahu. We had a great time, got caught in a down pour while we were out on a canoe (locals call it a blessing from above). We were drenched the rest of the day, but somehow, we were still able to enjoy the day. We got home late from there on Wednesday night. We did have a chance to walk on the beach in Waikiki on Thursday morning, have a cup of coffee and read a book. It is usually the small things that we look forward to on a vacation. Hard to see, but you get the idea of the fire dancers at the Polynesian cultural center. It was incredible to watch them throw fire around all night long.

I know Rebecca will love this picture because it was after our monsoon adventure. We were wet and moist and she was wearing my long sleeve shirt, which was the only thing that stayed dry.

Rebecca did a training with her team for Sensaria in Oahu and she said it was great. she had a blast getting to put all the faces with names. They had a good time together and her friend, Rene, was incredibly hospitable and welcomed her into their Ohana.

We arrived at the Westin Maui Resort and Spa last night after we had to get on three different planes in Oahu. It is a 20 minute flight, but each plane we got on, ended up having mechanical problems so they kept moving us to different planes. We didn't mind. A Mai Thai tastes the same in an airport bar as it does on the beach somewhere. We met some great people on our plane that ended up staying at our hotel so we had dinner with them later. It was very nice and relaxing. This hotel is beautiful. We wouldn't stay here ever because it is too swanky, but that makes it even more special and exciting. We got up early this morning and went for a walk on the beach, had coffee, went to the grocery store for some necessities and it was only 8:00. Not sure what we have planned for the day other than laying by the pool, working out in the weight room, and maybe taking a nap out by the pool. We will try to update with more pictures when we get a free moment. I am off to work out.

I am so excited for you two. Hawaii is such a dreamy place and the Mai Tao's are awesome! Gabe and I have been there a couple of times and got to do some really fun things like: Went to Hanauma bay and snorkled, Got to see Don-Ho (and he actually called me up on stage, kissed me and called himself my dad), we saw Aloha Las Vegas (impersonators singing)and lastly we met up with some locals that gave us the authentic Hawaiian experience by taking us to their house and feeding us, a real luau, some really nasty food :) They taught us how to make those really beautifully smelling plumerian lays and showed us how to crack open a coconut. We also went to the Polynesian Culture Center too. Neat place! So, if you didn't have any plans here are some for ya'll but don't forget Sex on the Beach,

those are the best drinks ever! :)

Okay, I just re-read your posts and realized that you don't need the tips for Oahu because you're in Maui. I can't wait to visit there one day. Have fun and tell us all about it!
