Maui, Hawaii

There are so many things to love about Maui, this years VA PRO President's Club destination.

The gorgeous warm sunny weather

The beautiful resorts

the local flowers

the picturesque sunsets

the amazing food, especially all the fresh seafood.

But our favorite part was being there with 8 of Eric's top employees of 2009 and their wives/guests/boyfriends

Day 1,
We spend most of day 1 getting to Maui from Salt Lake, a 7 hour flight took a lot out of us and as you can see from this rough picture below of me and Eric, we were pretty beat. after we checked in to the grand wailea That night we did all go out as a big group to Spago next door at the Four Seasons to kick of the trip right.

Day 2

After we all woke up at like 7am from being used to Utah time, we spent the morning at the pool/beach relaxing and playing.

That afternoon a few of the guys went golfing while some of the wives spent the afternoon at the spa. Which by the way, is one of the largest spas I have ever been to. So fun.

That night we hit up the local hot spot, and Maui favorite of mine Sensei in Kihei. It was so fun to go with our big group of 18, and the food did not disappoint.

Day 3

This day we rented a cabana between the adult pool and the beach so we could all lounge in the sun all day. Everyone enjoyed the resorts waterslides also, (i just played photog, since I am still supposed to be taking it easy... dr's orders)

We had delicious food delivered to our cabana thanks to Bret... ;)

Then that night was our annual Company White Dinner, which is the special thanks dinner where we do group pictures, and Eric's thanks everyone with a really special dinner that I spend a lot of time planning. This years turned out great (i thought) so it deserved its own post once I get the professional pics back from out Maui photographer, soon hopefully, I am dying over how all the flowers turned out.

Day 4

We woke up early for our morning snorkel tour. We paid for snorkel but also got plenty of whale watching.

After we snorkeled we stopped for a Hawaii favorite, Shaved Ice. So good.

We were all pretty tired after being gone all morning. So Eric and I both slept through our massages but I am sure they were good.
That night we all sort of separated for dinner and nighttime festivities.
Eric and I went to dinner at DUO with a part of the group but we are all seriously tried so I think no one took any pics. We even dragged ourselves back to the sushi bar for Saturday night karaoke and 1/2 off rolls after 11pm.

Day 5

Our last day we spent, soakin in the last rays of sun, and getting the most out of our last vacation hours.

We even watched a little superbowl before our evening flight home.
It was a great trip and so much fun to be with our friends. Hope you are all there next year in Atlantis!!
