Avila was in heaven on the islands: she got to hang out with the big girls, watch lots of movies, go boogie boarding, eat a donut every morning, build sand castles, wear her new sunglasses and flip-flops, swim all by herself, see whales and turtles, and make new friends.
I just realized that Avila is not even 3 years old yet and she has been to Maui 3 times - once in utero, when she was 1 1/2, and then this past week. That's kind of annoying. But when we got home I asked her if she missed Hawaii. Her response: "No." I then asked why. And she said,"Because I love my home."
