Maui… Wednesday

Wednesday was another full day. Josh had more conference sessions so to keep us busy whilst he was away , mom and I took the kids on another walk. This time we made it to the Hyatt. We had heard tale that they had penguins and other exotic birds there and so we ventured out to see if what we heard was true. It was!

Once we got to the Hyatt we found… an African Crowned Crain…

Micah had a hold of these shovels pretty much all the time. And often was wearing his life vest too. I can only imagine what people thought as they saw us walking 4 kids, one of which was in a bubble vest and holding shovels… through a fancy hotel lobby. Winking smile

The gang…. in front of orchids at the Hyatt. They had some beautiful gardens.

Micah was getting antsy in the stroller and since we still had a ways to walk to get back to our hotel… we busted out the movie on the iphone. Sometimes you gotta do, what you gotta do.

That night Josh and I attended a Luau with the conference he was attending… and a bonus was… the Luau was literally on the lawn in front of our room. So the kids stayed with my mom in the room, got bathed, watched a movie, and ordered pizza and then later on we were able to bring the girls out to the show. Yay!
