Our first stop was Serendipity III - "Serendipity" is my favorite movie, so this was a MUST-DO on our agenda!
The best thing ever: Frozen Hot Chocolate
More to come....

Merry Christmas from Rider & Hudson!
We flew out of Honolulu bright and early and over to Maui to meet Dave and Ashley. We rented an adorable Red Jeep Wrangler. It was such a good choice over the small Sebring convertible. We drove over to the Kannapali Beach area directly from the airport, which takes about 30 minutes. This is actually the route for the Maui Marathon if anyone had heard about that race. It is marked in my calendar for the future! We checked into the Kannapali Beach Resort - thanks to Dave's cousin who owns a timeshare there. The hotel was beautiful! The guys went grocery shopping and Ash and I hit the pool!
We soaked in the sun, pool, ocean, and sights for two days straight! It was so relaxing!
Shopping Day!!! We traveled down to the city of LaHaina and shopped along the water. We also stopped and had lunch at Cheeseburger in Paradise (The Orginial)...possibly the best burger ever!
We took a catameran out into the pacific on wednesday to go snorkeling. Now as some may know...I'm am very scared of the ocean. But - I did get in and actually snorkeled for about 25 minutes...Ben was so impressed! We looked at the beautiful coral and also shared the swim with a large number of sea turtles. They were so awesome to watch!
This day was LONG...and we expected it would be but we did the ROAD TO HANA on Thursday. We left Kannapali at 8:00am and didn't return back until 7:00pm. During the week, we had heard thta we needed to pick up the CD that guides you through the Road To Hana and also gives you detours and sights that you would have never known about it you didn't have the CD! It might have been a $25 CD - but it was well worth it! I have added the pictures below...
