About Us...
This is our travel blog... our electronic travel journal you could call it... documenting our journeys to new & different places. I called our blog, 'Tree Top Flyin'... a Jimmy Buffett reference that reminds me of traveling, & the adventures to be had with our newly acclaimed 'IFR' Pilot & his plane. We're a non-traditional family - living in non-traditional ways... and I love it that way. For the four of us life is quick & distinct... it's unique and adventuresome - but it's also very normal. We have angst, & we have laughter. We have pain and we have greatness. We're happy, and we're whole...this family, that is mine.

Maui, HI - June 2-8, 2007

This trip was easily the best trip of the 2007! It was our first real family vacation - all four of us. We stayed at The Grand Hyatt on Kaanapali Beach, and our room was as good as it gets. The boys are little FISH so the pool was a huge hit. They had a slide & shallow play areas with sand, giant turtle statues, etc. It was so fun to watch them play... happy as can be. They're funny when they play... I don't think they interacted once in that pool. Bo's usually splashing around, goggles in place, imagining he's a Hot Wheels driver, or a kung-foo fighter... completely oblivious to everyone around him. And Ty is usually skimming the edges of the pool, face under water, toying with the idea of creeping over to the deep (too deep) end. It's hillarious to me that they go in separate directions & dissapear into their own little universe.

One of the first days we went snorkling in sea turtle territory. I'm infamous for getting sea-sick so I spent most of the boat ride trying not to lose it, but as soon as the boat stopped - I was great! Ty was so brave - and snorkled almost the whole time... I was super proud of him. There was no convincing Bo of getting in the water, understandably - it's a little scarey.

We saw a real live Luau one night, with fire dancers and the whole bit. We saw the island from a hellicopter; spent one day on Wailea Beach boogy-boarding (Ty & I got hammered by some serious waves); & drove through the rain forest on dune-buggys.The rain forest was the best... hopefully the pictures speak for themselves! It was such an awesome trip that I've been trying to talk Jimbo into making it an annual tradition!

The boys look so little! I can't believe what a difference a little more than a year makes!
