  •   abjane17 @aimeeloohoo this was a guy who sets up everyday in Lahaina and takes photos of people with his birds. I hope I get to share the other photos when we get them! It was crazy having huge birds on my shoulders! We still haven't made it to the Garden of Eden (or the Road to Hana...we're afraid of Eli screaming for being in the car so much. ) 1d
  •   aimeeloohoo That is Sooo awesome!!! 1d
  •   aimeeloohoo Oh and I wanted to ask if the car seat is tilted slightly up? just a thought, but I sure was having a really hard time when he was younger with the car seat. I realized it was set up for an older baby, and not a younger baby. So it was sitting upright a little more than he liked. Does that make sense? 1d
  •   aimeeloohoo *Asher was having a hard time. 1d
  •   abjane17 @aimeeloohoo it's weird because it's our same car seat from home. I don't think the positions can change in ours? And Eli always prefers to be sitting up more than he likes to lie back too. He did some better yesterday because I nursed him right before getting in the car and he was tired so he fell asleep...as the day went on, he got crabbier, but was able to nap in the car again (until my FIL woke him by stopping the car even after Scott just told him that he would wake up if we stopped...he pulled over "just to see" and then when Eli woke up, it was great for him because it meant we could/would stop where/when he wanted to. Ugh!) I think he is definitely teething and so he's even less patient than usual...and that's not saying much. 1d
  •   abjane17 @aimeeloohoo I will look and see if our car seat is positioned in a different way than at home...it doesn't seem to be...? 1d
  •   aimeeloohoo Omg, why would he stop?! How annoying!!! And yes, I'm sure he's teething or something and really uncomfortable. Poor kiddo! Were you able to find those teething pods? 23h
  •   abjane17 @aimeeloohoo why??? because only a normal person would actually respect parents' opinion/wishes, etc....Not him. I hope I survive the 23 days without losing my mind (or blowing up at someone besides Scott) And...he's been pushing for us to "get a break" and he'll take Mia back to the aquarium, which I really don't feel good about. But Scott won't tell his dad the truth-he's like a child around his dad. It's really bugging me. But YES we finally got the teething pods! How much do they cost in SLC? Here they are $7.99. They seem to help...mostly while I'm applying it. Poor little guy! 21h

  •   abjane17 @happierstill she turns 5 one month from today! and I don't know what her deal was today. We didn't have the most exciting of days...my FIL had only one car and we had to run errands with him in order to get shave ice...so maybe that was it? Still. Soooo tough. Sorry you had a hard day today too. xo 3d
  •   amjovie Goodness Abbie she's so big! 3d
  •   tatti_denise She is soo sweet!!!! 3d
  •   kenziegraham Traveling with kids. when it rains it pours 2d
  •   abjane17 @amjovie sometimes! she'll turn 5 in less than one month. 2d
  •   abjane17 @tatti_denise she can be! she can also be a little 😈 2d
  •   abjane17 @kenziegraham ugh! I'm blaming all the sugar in the shave ice. from now on we will get the sugar-free variety or different treats and see if it helps! 😬 2d
  •   tatti_denise I can't believe that. She always look like a little angel 2d

abjane17 not a great photo of me...but at least here is proof that I am on this vacation too! it's taking longer for me to lose the baby weight this time...I don't know if I'm eating more, or if it was the c-section, or the second baby, or because of my "advanced maternal age"...but I'm having a hard time being in a tropical place and not feeling like my usual (beach-body-ready) self. I'm shallow, I know. ️ anyway...I'm hoping the (tandem) breastfeeding kicks in and works its magic like it did for me after Mia was born.

  •   abjane17 @annie_9712 you are sweet. Thank you! 3d
  •   abjane17 @kenziegraham aw. I'm sorry, mama! I don't know why you feel that way, though! You are gorgeous! 3d
  •   abjane17 @thekaleidoscopeca thank you! You are far too kind 3d
  •   kraskin Abbie You are beautiful ! But I totally get it. I am the same way- can't loose any weight this time - I was gaining weight right now I am only 3 lb lighter than the day I left the hospital breastfeeding doesn't do anything - ( plus my thyroid is not working properly this time around but I am still hoping to get my body back. @abjane17 3d
  •   ddalkijane Umma chan! You are beautiful as always! 3d
  •   dino3013 I'm the same, always feel like I look horrendous in photos and hardly any of me. However, as a friend pointed out, our little ones love us so much and think we are beautiful. Made me realise that I need to make a bigger effort to be in photos and not delete delete!! I think you look so lovely and smiley @abjane17 2d
  •   dianachristineb You look beautiful, Abbie!1d
  •   jessica_therrien You look great! 1d

abjane17 we visited the hotel where I stayed when I came to Maui with my parents when I was 14. Mia loved it, but then cried when told we couldn't swim in the pools here. the grounds (and swimming pools) are amazing. If only we could afford $500-$1000 a night for a room!

  •   islegrl Maui hotels are sooo expensive! 4d
  •   abjane17 @annie_9712 we aren't staying here! I did stay here once...over 20 years ago with my parents. It looked just as nice then, tho! I dream of being able to afford a hotel like this one day...but it's not likely. 4d
  •   abjane17 @jetaimekyan thank you! it's my/our favorite place too. We were married on Oahu and my husband lived there as a child and again while in college. We are in Maui now because my inlaws moved here but I prefer Oahu. I'm still so happy to be in Hawaii, though! It's such paradise. Where do you guys like to go? I've never been to Kauai or the Big Island and would like to visit both. 4d
  •   abjane17 @islegrl it's crazy! are they even more than the nicest hotels on Oahu? that surprises me. I am so happy to be in Hawaii, but I really wish it was Oahu! We just discovered a Sanrio store at a little shopping center here, though! 4d
  •   piperh79 Paradise 4d
  •   islegrl I think Maui is more expensive in general. Some higher end hotels in Waikiki are pretty pricey but not like the hotels in Maui. 4d
  •   abjane17 @islegrl interesting because I think Oahu is soooo much prettier! 4d
  •   annie_9712 Still jealous!! Lol 4d

abjane17 not actually today...but Eli wears this hat everyday (a lady on the beach today told us that she and her friends voted it the cutest hat on a baby EVER ️) and always looks so adorable and so happy.

  •   hanamik Do you like spam musubis? Hawaii=SPAM. :D 5d
  •   abjane17 @tiacolleen @hanamik ha! no Hawaii spam here-we are vegetarians 🍋 5d
  •   tiacolleen Oh. No I was kidding haha. Bad Hawaiian joke lol 5d
  •   abjane17 @tiacolleen no worries-I knew you were joking around. Isn't it crazy to think we are in the same time zone now?!! Awwww...I still wish we'd gotten to go to Oahu, instead of Maui. 5d
  •   hanamik @abjane17 lol! Definitely not spam then! 5d
  •   tiacolleen @abjane17 I wish you were here too!!! 5d

  •   _lavonia Have so much fun!!! 1w
  •   aimeeloohoo Are you sure you will ever want to come back? 1w
  •   abjane17 @babyclairebear I thought I responded to you...the temps are in the low 80's! Perfect. It would be even more so if we were here with my family instead of my inlaws, though... 1w
  •   abjane17 @aimeeloohoo I'm actually a little homesick! Isn't that weird?!! I think it has to do with staying with my inlaws (and not a hotel) - i compare them to how much more fun I'd be having with my parents...they are much better grandparents too. I'm hoping once we do more (and hopefully on our own ) I'll feel better. I really wish we were on Oahu too...but I'm trying to stay positive! 1w
  •   sharstinm Oh so lovely! I hope you are having a wonderful vacation! Nothing like that Hawaii sun 6d

  •   haleyrclarke The only bad part about hawaii...waking up super early since your body clock is 4 hrs ahead. The first night we got there we were all in bed asleep at like 6:00 pm 1w

  •   _lavonia Breathtaking 1w
  •   aimeeloohoo 1w
  •   abjane17 @haleyrclarke i don't mind waking up early at all while in Hawaii! Or at any beach, actually. Maybe if I lived here all the time it would start to get old...but I can't imagine that! Anyway...tell me your fam's favorite things to do/see/eat here! Where did you guys stay on the last trip? We mostly love to go to the beach, but are up for other fun stuff too. 5d
  •   haleyrclarke We stayed in wailea at the wailea ekahi village. It was nice! You have to get shave ice at ululanis (I think that's how it's spelled) it's in Lahaina. We ate at a good place in kaanapali at the whalers village called something like barefoot grill. Anyways you can eat with your feet in the sand! So fun! We went to the pool or beach every single day that we were there. We also did Haleakala but the kids got bored after a while... If you want to go for a nice drive there's a winery and a little general store with really good buffalo burgers in a town called ulupalukua. Your pics are making me SUPER maui homesick all you're missing out on here is 25* and inversion 5d
  •   abjane17 @haleyrclarke thank you! We went to Kaanapali and Lahaina yesterday but will go back. I love Lahaina. We ate a Cheeseburger in Paradise. I ate there years ago with my fam and Scott & I love eating at the one in Waikiki (on Oahu) ...we got mia some shave ice at Scoops right around there...but good to know to look for the other place! I would love to eat at the barefoot place too! I think I read about both places in one of the guidebooks i have with me. I don't think we will do Haleakala (Scott is really not a morning person) and drives are hard because Eli has started crying everytime he's in the car. It's so weird. He doesn't do that at home! I think he's exhausted and teething and just isn't putting up with things like he normally would. It's totally raining today...hoping it clears by tomorrow. The weather forecast is saying it will. Yay! Don't be jealous-I'm sure you'll get back here again soon. I still wish we were in Oahu instead. 4d
