thanksgiving in maui

Yea! It was Nathan and my first time away on vacation without Tristan. The Maui Invitational was going to be fabulous - we were staying at the Maui Westin Resort and Spa - which was the same hotel as the KU basketball team, coaches, AD, and their families were staying. We planned this trip last January and fully expected to want to be away from Tristan and have time to ourselves. Even when we went to the Dominican in June (where he was teething pretty bad and in a not so good mood most of the trip) we were really thinking of this grand 'ole trip by ourselves to Hawaii.

So we fly to Kansas and drop Tristan off and Grandma and Grandpa Davis' house while we galavant onto an "adult trip" of our own. We get there, day one, and can barely keep up with the time difference. Ha! Tristan's not only on a schedule, he's got us on one too!

The next day we explored the resort, relaxed, tanned, played with Alex, enjoyed some food, and watched KU win! Then when it came time to Skype with Tristan, it was kind of a downer. He was happy to see us, but then sad when we said goodbye to him. Grandma and Pa Davis said he cried a little bit for a few minutes, but then went onto playing. We sulkingly walked back to the pool and looked at each other stating, "We really should have brought Tristan with us. He would have really liked being here." We couldn't help but continue to tell ourselves this for the rest of trip. We missed our little man.

All in all, we had a great time with Steve, Sarah, Alex, Michelle, Jordan, Nancy and John Miles, watching KU play, relaxing in the warm sun, working out on the beach (that was a tough workout day), shopping at the mall, drinking a few beers (we barely had 4 each the entire trip), getting in a massage and facial, and eating some good food. The trip was really fun and relaxing, but we were sure glad to get back to Grandma and Grandpa Davis' house on Thanksgiving afternoon to be welcomed with smiles and hugs from Tristan. He missed us and knew we had missed him too. Kisses all around. :)
