The Weekes have the best Christmas tradition - HAWAII! Mike wanted to visit a friend he hadn't seen in awhile so on our way to Maui we stopped in Oahu for two days. It was great meeting Mike's longtime friend Harrison Horn and his beautiful wife and sweet baby girl Holland.
After going to Oahu last Christmas and then to Kauai for our honeymoon, I was excited to finally experience Mike's favorite island - Maui. I was even more excited to stay at the Grand Wailea because it's where Just Go With It (with Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston, Brooklyn Decker and Nicole Kidman) was filmed. It looked so pretty in the movie and let me tell you, it was even more amazing in real life. The pools are unreal. There are a bunch of pools throughout the resort and they are all connected through water slides and a lazy river. There is even a water elevator! Every kid's (and adult's) dream. We didn't go out and see much like we did in Oahu and Kauai so I don't know as much about the island, but I definitely fell in love with the resort and nearby beaches. As much as I have come to love Utah, I will forever be at home near the ocean.

I was so happy that my sweetest nieces Gwen and Reese were there with us too! We even got to share a room with them :)
Mike and I took the kids home early one night... He is going to be the best dad!
bad picture but the front trees were all in lights and it was beautiful!
Gwen came up to me, asked if I'd watch a movie with her and cuddled up on my lap - I LOVE HER!

There is nothing better than relaxing by the beach and pool, drinking tropical smoothies and indulging in fresh fish. It's safe to saw we are all counting down until next year already.

I was so grateful to be in Hawai'i when Shelby sent me this pictures and said I had a snow house on top of my car!
