The first day we drove to Iao Valley State Park to hike up to the Iao needle. The park is in the midst of a rainforest and is lovely. We also played in some waterfalls and the lao stream that runs through the park. It was heavenly.

The next day we drove to Paia, which is an awesome little surf town with a hippy vibe. It has great shops and restaurants and an overall awesome feel. We shopped a bit, then stopped for coffee and listened to a musician playing a Hawaiian steel guitar. Oh, and I found some people dedicated to defending Hawaii which cracked me up b/c Maui is so easy going and peaceful, with Paia being the epitome of laid-backness. lol.

That night we headed to The Old Lahaina Luau. I went to the Luau back when I visited Maui with my parents and bestie about 10 years ago and loved it. I knew it was something Tim & I couldn't miss. We had a fantastic time. We took pictures under the historic Lahaina banyan tree, got hand carved turtles for the boys, ate fantastic food & watched a fabulous show. Oh, and there was an open bar. Tim really enjoyed that part!! ;)
