[over the weekend] Maui with the girls

Okay, Blogger decided to cooperate with me so I can get these Maui pictures up to show you! Six of us hopped on a plane over to our neighboring island on Friday afternoon. It's about a 40 minute ride (including take off and landing!). 

We rented this beautiful house in Lahaina, which is the historical whaling town in West Maui. The house was walking distance from Front Street, with lots of fun restaurants, shops and bars.




We drove up into the hills to a lavender farm. Despite some less than stellar customer service, we had fun frolicking through the fields in the cool air, checking out the crazy plants and flowers and sniffing lots and lots of lavender. Oh! And they had lavender scones! Deeelish.











Of course we hit the beach. Granted, we probably didn't spend a fraction of the time there that most Hawaii vacationers would. 




We saw some fishermen hauling in their catch of mahi-mahi. Scrumptious. 





Oh Hawaiian sunsets, how I love thee. 


Good weekend. Yep. How was yours?
