 We decided to take a week long trip to Maui with Scott's super cheap Hawaiian Airlines buddy passes and leave the kids at home. Scott and Wendi and Erin and Dallas met us there. It sure was fun! Matt found this heart rock near a blow hole we explored.
 Getting ready to go on a dinner cruise. Yummy macaroni salad!

Snorkeling on the first day at a spot we found off the road.
Watching the sun rise atop Mt Haleakala
 After the sunrise we biked down the mountain. It was pretty fun!

 Dinner in the open air with a gorgeous sunset

 This gelato shop was next to the condo we stayed at. We went there many times!
 Our last day in Maui just the two of us. We checked out a bunch of beaches and just chilled watching the sunset. This was at Big Beach.
Maui was awesome, we can't wait to go back someday!

Chin Chins

 Our new pets are these two Chinchillas we took in from a family that was moving. They are brothers and you can't really tell them apart unless they are right next to each other. We named them Chico and Rigby and call them the Chin Chins.
 They are SO soft! Softer than velvet. And they are so sweet and quiet. I just love their little hands. They like raisins for treats and will hold it in their hand like a banana and take bites until it's gone.
 Today they are enjoying the outdoors while their cage is getting cleaned.
