For some of us in the United States, this has been the longest winter ever! Extremely cold temperatures and record snowfalls have continued for months now. These four boys and a girl have been like caged animals during this seemingly never ending winter. That is why we are especially grateful for our much needed spring break to Hawaii.
Beyond the warm weather, sunshine and beauty of the islands, we were drawn to Hawaii for this vacation because we wanted to spend it with Uncle Stew and Auntie Kim. Lucky for us, Hawaii happens to be be a perfect halfway meeting point between Shanghai and Chicago.
After a nine hour direct flight from Chicago to Oahu, then a quick 45 minute flight between the islands, we arrive in Maui. Aloha!
