Good-Bye Maui

We had such a great time, it was sad to say Good-Bye. The people of Maui and visitors alike are so friendly, we met a lot of nice people. We arrived home Saturday around 8 pm.

Jadyn enjoyed all that we did there, she is such a easy going kid. The highlight of the trip for me was when we took off her sandals and let her walk in the warm, soft sand for the first time. The smile on her face was priceless. I didn't have my camera with me, but I did have my phone.

The boys had a great time as well. Garrison said he could stay another week. Jeron loved the pool, there was a cave with a waterfall, that is where he would hang out!

Here are some more pictures of Jadyn "posing" this first one was taken right before she chased a wild chicken and tripped over a parking curb. She got another skinned knee and a nice goose chicken egg on her forehead. She is not good at watching where she is going, she had one thing on her mind, that Chicken!. Who got away....

she loved all the wooden carvings around town.

Friday we visited a dormant volcano called Haleakala. It was very interesting and cold at the top

Above the clouds at 10,023 feet above sea level!

We were very cautious taking Jadyn this high, we went slow and watched her closely. She did great and enjoyed the view.

We would again like to thank Make a Wish and Maui for this wonderful opportunity you provided for Jadyn and our family.

Tuesday evening we leave for Spokane. Jadyn has her first procedure, a heart cath. at 6 am Wednesday morning. This is always done before heart surgery. It gives the surgeon a great look at the valves and pressures of her heart.

Her heart surgery is Friday morning at 6 am

Again, I will post as often as I can to update the many family and friends who follow her blog.

Your trip looked amazing! I've been to Maui and have done many of the things you guys were able to do....the beauty is hard to describe! What a wonderful blessing to have been give this gift...Jadyn is so deserving, as is her Mom and Dad.

We will be thinking of you guys this week. I'll be checking in on the blog and praying for sweet Jadyn.

Can you believe it's almost been a year since we boarded the plane to China. I still remember you introducing yourself to us at LAX. You were the first family we met! sigh
