Seriously… I cannot get over the beauty of Maui!  Looking at these pictures from our trip make me so eager to go back!  Although, I think I will wait until I can control my kiddos a little bit better ;) That flight home was pretty brutal, not gonna lie.  Also, I need to go back when Husband can come with us.  Unfortunately he had to work this time, but there was NO WAY I would have ever missed the incredibly romantic wedding of my sweet cousin, Kelly.  It was held at the Four Seasons Wailea where they set up on a bluff overlooking the Pacific.  My little man, Bennett, was the ring bearer, and he did not disappoint… just kidding, he had a meltdown and had to be removed from the wedding completely, but no one will remember that because there was so much other awesome stuff going on during the ceremony such as a gentleman blowing a conch shell, a ukulele playing some authentic Hawaiian tunes, then the bride and groom exchanging their written vows.  It was seriously amazing!  I was so honored, she chose me as her Matron of Honor, it truly was so special.IMG_4577

That night we checked out a Hawaiian luau, the drinks were flowing and plenty of boomerangs were taken.  It was a good time!  The next morning a small group of us crawled out of bed at 3 AM to see the sunrise above the clouds at Haleakala.  This was probably one of the top 3 most amazing things I have ever done in my life.  The view was  heavenly, that’s the best way to describe it…IMG_4868

I have to thank my mother in law, Debbie.  She flew all the way out to Maui to help me with my boys, and when I say she went above and beyond for me, she did!  I got to experience the whole wedding and all of the fun events that Kelly had planned without having to worry about my babies at all.  That was priceless for me, and I appreciate you so much, Debbie!

{Random Thought :: I also want to highly recommend Mama’s Fish House for lunch or dinner , it was fantastic!}

Scrolling through these pictures, I’m feeling so blessed to have been able to experience this with Kelly and her new hubby, Randy!  They are seriously the cutest couple and they totally complete each other!  I love them both so much…

Hey Kel, we should try to go back every couple of years ;)  wouldn’t that be a fun tradition??
