Will and Dots on the flight to Maui. Robert and I were directly across the aisle from them. Except for being toward the front of the plane, these were possibly the worst seats on the plane: they reclined ½" at best and backed up to the bathroom! We arrived fairly late at night. My mother flew from Jackson Hole and was waiting for us when we landed. Robert's mother arrived several hours later
Out for a pleasant early morning walk along the beachfront path: our friend Jeffrey from Dallas, Hockey Boy, Robert and my mom
Looking up at the resort from the beach: heavenly!

My favorite time of day: afternoon happy hour! (left to right, our friends from Dallas Julie and Jeff, me, my mom, Robert's mom and Robert)
Dots enjoyed catching up with friends from home on the hotel computer
Sunset view from our room
Dots and me relaxing in the lobby while Robert pulls the car around to take us to dinner. This evening ended up being a bit of a disaster. We had reservations at 7:30, but didn't get seated until 8:15. By the time someone came to take our order, it was 8:45 and the kids were falling asleep at the table and the rest of us were ready to call it an evening as well. I believe that's one of the only times in my life I've ever gotten up and left a restaurant! Very disappointing as it was a place we've eaten before and enjoyed
Hockey Boy the next morning - up bright and early and ready for a day at the beach
Dots overlooking the hotel pools - have I mentioned she got braces a couple of weeks ago?

Dinner with our friends from Dallas at Matteo's Pizzeria
The restaurant's tip jar that my mom thought was funny!
Mothers and daughters after dinner - my friend Hopsy from Monograms and Manicures got this top for me at the Lilly warehouse sale. Isn't it fabulous?

I unintentionally contaminated all of the pictures on my blog when I changed my privacy settings on Flickr. I am working backwards to correct them all, but it is quite a tedious procedure! If you encounter a post with error messages from Flickr where the pictures should be, then I haven't gotten to that post yet. Please let me know and I will update it immediately. Thanks for your patience!
