Guess What Came With This Card



My daughter, son-in-law, grandsons and my sons surprised us with the most fantastic surprise.  We're going to Hawaii!!!!!

With grandchildren visiting and everyone living so far apart, getting together is always a trial, so my daughter kept saying mom, we have a surprise for you and dad for both your birthdays. We'll get it to you soon.  DH's birthday is in Sept., and I just had mine.  You can't imagine how surprised we were when they all got together and are sending us to Hawaii for the week of Oct. 6th thru 13th.  We're going to Maui!!!!!  Airfare, accomodations, rental car and mad money included.

I am so excited, I can hardly stand it.  I know that I have to have the most wonderful children in the whole world.  So I just have to brag, hope you will forgive me.

I've already spent the day going through the closet and looking at my wardrobe so I can figure out what to buy.  I don't own a single pair of shorts, so that is definitely on the list.  A new pair of sandels and some cute tee shirts, and possibly a couple more pair of capris.  (I don't really sound excited at all do I ?)

We have never been, so this will be a super fun trip for us.

Thanks so much for letting me share all the excitement.

  17. Hi Marty,
    Happy Birthday to you both. What a wonderful gift. You will love Hawaii. Every island is so different. In 2010 my daughter, the granddaughters that live up the street and I took a 10 day vacation to Maui. We had a great time. Please take lots of photos. I love travel journals. As you know from visiting my blog. I have our trip posted in June 2010.

    I remember when I went there... I stepped out of the airport I could smell the sweet scent of tropical flowers! It so beautiful there.

    Enjoy every second and make sure you watch the sunrise at Haleakala volcano ... I think that's how you spell it!!!

  32. Hey Marty -
    I'm a new follower. So excited for you! You will absolutely love it I'm sure. We gave a trip to Hawaii to my parents a long time ago for one of their anniversaries. Mom was so excited she started crying when she found out. They loved it and talked about it for a long time. YES! You need to get shorts.....and a swim suit for sure.
