Father's Day in Paradise

On Father's Day, we got up early and jumped on a plane to Maui. We were eager to enjoy some quality family and relaxation time. When we first got on the plane, I was all prepared to work throughout the entire flight. Once we got on the flight, I quickly learned that there was no wifi over the Pacific Ocean. I was really stressed about all the work I planned to do during the flight, but then I realized that maybe it was a sign that I need to relax and take a break. I did something that I have not done in years - read a magazine, played cards and even took a couple of cat naps.

When we got off the plane, we did what we love to do - explore! We stopped at various scenic outlooks, and just enjoyed the beauty that surrounded us.

The kids shopped from locals selling souvenirs out of mini vans, bringing home keepsakes they will treasure for years to come. Father's Day kicked off a week full of adventures together in Paradise.

Stay tuned for more to come...

    I love Maui! We did the bike ride from the top of the volcano at the crack of a gnat's ass a.m. Your kids might still be a little too young for that as we moved fast enough that I saw my life pass before my eyes several times.

  8. As a father the best gift for me is my family and my love my wife. I love my wife and children and when ever I see them my energy becomes double. I spent vacations in different spots in Switzerland but this time my company website copywriter give me tickets for travel to Denmark with my family.
