Hawaii 12-0

Dateline: Ka’anapali.  As they say, Maui no ka ‘oi – there’s no place like it. Ka’anapali is one of the most family-friendly areas in the islands, and we should know – we brought Steven’s girls here in the eighties, the girls and our boys here in the 90’s, and for this trip we have four grandkids in tow. Daniel arrived yesterday from his recent trip to Seoul, so everyone is here except Taylor – someone has to hold down a job in this family! A friend of Daniel’s will arrive today to join him, which will bring our group to an even dozen – so many of us we actually qualified as a “tour” with the hotel!

In decades past, we would arrive here with suitcases strapped to the top of a rented mini-van, teenagers and toddlers spilling out of the car and declare ourselves a “roving spectacle”, noting the horrified expressions on the faces of onlookers as we invaded the serenity of their Hawaiian paradise. But that was nothing compared to this trip – three and a half generations of one family staking out deck chairs, grazing the breakfast buffet and, in general, hanging loose. Not surprisingly, the crowds seem to part when we come through – everyone gives us a wide berth!

We’ve spent most of our time by the pool, but we did manage to pull the group together and attend a luau the other night:

    And for all of you chicken fans out there, we apologize for the interruption and promise to return the Chicken Lady to her previous occupation as soon as all of the Aloha fever wears off. In the meantime, I can attest that the pix tell an accurate tale of all that is going on here. We are having a great time!
