Or, "Ahoha" as Avery likes to say! We went to Maui for our 6th anniversary. It was very relaxing and much needed. We realized at the end of the week that we didn't take as many photos as we should have. It wasn't for lack of opportunity, just having too much fun to stop for a photo op sometimes. Here is a link to some of the photos we did get. We did a lot of playing on the beach and in the pool, saw some sites and ate a lot of good food. We spent the time with our good friends the Afflerbaughs, who moved to San Francisco. We miss them a ton and this trip made us realize how much we miss them. They are great to travel with and were great tour guides, as they had been to Maui once all ready. We can't wait to start planning our next trip to Hawaii!

Check this out. They are going to do great things!

The Towne family is going to change a lot of lives in honor of their son, Ben, who passed away from neuroblastoma ( a rare pediatric cancer). Check out what they've done already. I am so honored to know them and can't wait to see what lies ahead for them and their foundation. I believe the Ben Towne Pediatric Research Foundation will help to find a cure for cancer someday. We miss you Ben.
