Life lessons are sometimes hard to learn.

Our trip to Maui was supposed to be very different.

We brought our friends Jake and Meg who are my family of choosing, along with Nonnie and Papa and everyone had a wonderful time. Really how could we have anything, but a wonderful time.

The body surfing is mighty fine
and the turtles swim right up to the beach.

Everyone in the group learned to paddle board.
We all got a little wet in the process.
It was so much fun!
