My Birthday Was really good! Mom and Dad gave me some money towards my plane ticket to Maui before i went, and then yesterday gave me a sleeping bag and a pad to sleep on for camping! That will be nice for this next summer full of camping out for good water on the lakes! I didn't know what to tell them when they asked what i wanted for my birthday, but they always get me the best things anyways! They must know me pretty well!! and Stacey Bless her heart got me my dream watch that i would have never bought for myself! It was a complete surprise when i opened it! I am just glad that she got a sweet hook up on it because it is EXPENSIVE! She is too good to me!
This was a neat stop on the road to Hana. It was about a 25 foot waterfall jump or so. Trace got this good shot of me! It was a nice, refreshing fresh water pool too, which was a nice change from the salt water ocean. Stacey tried and tried to talk us out of jumping because it was only about 9 feet deep, and there was lots of big, not so forgiving rocks on the bottom.. But i assured her i was experienced in these sort of activities! ha ha
This is at the BLACK SAND BEACH also, we just walked all around on these awesome rocks right out to where the waves were crashing on the rocks! it was pretty loud and intimidating. There were tons of little crabs crawling around on the rocks that had been tossed up from the waves.. Just us guys were out there enjoying the new experience.

Stacey, Trace, Blake, Skyler, Keal, Ashley, Crystal, and myself took off to Maui, Hawaii on December 22, 2007. We had a BLAST! It was perfect weather the whole time and was the perfect get-away trip from the cold winter of Utah. We Spent pretty much the whole first day in the LAX airport waiting for our flight to Maui, we got there at about 9:00 a.m. and didn't fly out till 6:30! We arrived in Maui at ten or so. We went for a quick walk on the beach and then crashed for the night. The rest of the days included, sun bathing on the beach, playing in the ocean, jumping off rocks, learning how to "SUICIDE" like the Hawaiians, Snorkeling with the turtles, I got buried in the sand and sculpted into a mermaid.. Thursday we drove to the other side of the island to a place called Hana, the drive was very pretty through a rain forest. When we got there we went to the "Black Sand Beach", which in my eyes was the prettiest part of the island. We did a fair share of shopping and eating too but who likes to hear about that? That about sums it up without going into too much detail..
