Here’s how it added up: twelve people, ten days, one luau and about a half dozen giant slices of hula pie. Oh how we love Maui!
We started taking the family to Ka’anapali back when the girls were young teens and our boys were toddlers. Now we have grandkids in tow – another generation to enjoy the pool and the beach and, of course, the water slide at the Westin Maui.
We met up at LAX with all the young cousins.
Later that day the kids were exploring the garden paths at the Westin.
First order of business is to visit Keoki, the Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo who rules the roost at the Maui Westin. He is forty-four years old and has been in residence at the hotel since we first started visiting in the 1980’s.
Big decision of the day? Pool or beach? Lots of both!
Taylor couldn’t join us this year, but Daniel and his friend Peter brought the urban hipness quotient:
Hula Grill is the heart of Ka’anapali Beach and our go-to for dinner with a big crowd:
The days were just packed, starting with our glorious morning walks.
The breakfast buffet is a tradition:
There are arts and crafts to be made:
Lots of pictures to pose for:
And for the more adventurous members of our group, there was the snorkel cruise:
The nightly reward for all that hard work: ice cream!
Such a great trip. Thanks, all, for joining us again! When can we go back?
