Maui Invitational - November 2010

Hula dancers during half time ... only in Hawaii!

The Maui Travelers: Quinlan (oops, eyes closed), Renee, John, Kenny, Jessica & Lori

A good picture of John and Renee.

The reason we were in Maui. Graham shaking hands with his opponent.

Kenny, Jessica & me. Some of our pictures were a little dark - maybe it's our Hawaiian tan?!

Kenny & I had eaten at this restaurant 25 years ago while on our honeymoon in Maui. It was recommended to us way back then and it was still running strong. It is an Italian restaurant named "Longi's". While we were driving through Lahaina, we're trying to remember the name of the restaurant - we didn't remember the name but as we walked past it, we saw the black & white tiles on the floor and we both said "That's it!"

Having lunch in the open air by the ocean.

Jessica & Kenny "Bring Some Aloha home"

Shopping in Lahaina.

Now you know why Kenny agreed to go hiking!

We hiked through a golf course (John's choice) Jessica, Renee & Quinlan down below. I think they are too little to see.

We hiked along the beautiful coastline.

Again, hiking along the coastline.


We took a driving tour around the island. This is a little one lane road we were on. Kenny called it the "white knuckle" drive. If a car came around the other side they had to back up until they found a cranny in the cliff to pull over so that we could pass.

The ocean is sooo blue. It's beautiful.

I loved the little church in the valley.

We had such a wonderful trip. Weather was beautiful. Food was great. Company was fun. Games were exciting. What more could you ask for?!

Then.... 1996

Now.... 2010
It had been 14 years since we had been to Disneyland.

Thunder Mountain....the easiest ride to get a Fast Pass for - we rode it the most.

The hardest ride to get a Fast Pass for - Space Mountain. 11:00 PM we were heading towards Space Mountain to see "by chance" if we could get on it for our last ride of the night. 100 Minute wait - our lucky day, a family stops us and asks us if we wanted to use their Fast Passes - this was our Last Ride of the Night - Fun!

Tyler and Jen rode Splash Mountain while Kenny & I went and ate dinner and took a little "nap" so we could survive Disneyland til it closed.

Indiana Jones....

"The Happiest Place On Earth"

Thanks Disneyland - we enjoyed our visit. It was a much needed get-away.
We hope it won't take us 14 years to return.

I gave Boston some "RED" jello. Sorry Courtney, he had a red face even after washing his face. I think he enjoyed it!

Love ya Bos Boy!

Cup Cakes In A Jar!
I fell in love with these cute bridal shower favors.
It was the first time I have had a cup cake in a jar.
Loved eating them with a spoon - no mess!

This yellow cup cake had butter cream frosting with strawberries layered in it.

The chocolate cup cake had chocolate butter cream frosting with crushed heath candy bars sprinkled in between layers.

Cute & Yummy!

TAYLOR REUNION - 7/24/2010

Jason eating the donut on the string.

Brian, Jennifer and Ashley eating donuts.

Three-legged Race

Little kids eating the donut off from the string.

Boston with Marley - they are second cousins born on the same day.

The first generation men trying to hit the tennis ball across the line without using their hands. They have a potato in a pair of hose hanging from their waist. They were supposed to hit the tennis ball with their hanging potato. (This was harder than it looked - I'll just say, they're cheaters)

Gpa and Gma Taylor - the two responsible for this reunion.

All the dad's of the kids 5 years and younger lined up for...

....getting the shaving cream squirted off by a water gun.
Jaxon got closer and closer....

The little kids playing "whack the cracker" - you can see the crackers hanging down behind them. The adults (or so called adults) played this game also - it was brutal, but fun to watch.

My family surprised me with my favorite cake - Texas sheet cake. Thank you Courtney, Jennifer and Kenny. It was yummy.

We had a great time in the nice, cool pines. The kids (and adults) enjoyed the thunder and rain. So sad it is over.
