Ohhhhhh, Maui {Easy Riders & Old Lahaina Town}

Every time we go to Hawaii, my friend Michele tells me to check out her friend's bike tour business, Maui Easy Riders.  They drive up to the top of the Haleakala Volcano and then bike down 25 miles on a curvy road.


No thanks has always been my response.  But, this time around I tried to be a little more adventurous.   So, I went.  And, it was scary.  But also kind of fun and cool.  Our guides were laid-back and awesome, and the best part was when we stopped in a little town on the way down and they bought us all donuts on a stick!



We stopped by a roadside fruit stand afterwards.  Ever tried sugarcane?  Yeah, don't.  




Ryan had been promising Olivia ice cream or shave ice or both for being such a great girl on the plane rides out, so that afternoon we went out for that.  The ice cream didn't pan out, so it was shave ice for all of us!  I don't think I mentioned this, but I put a few blank hard back books from the Target dollar bin in her backpack on the ride out and she spent most of the week writing and drawing about the trip.  It was amazing and I hope she keeps that book forever.



The next day, David went on a morning scuba trip so we took the girls into Lahaina Town to walk the shops and check out the banyan trees {and, okay, get treats}.   If you go to Maui, you MUST stop in the ice cream shop Banyan Treats and get an ice cream cookie sandwich.  It's AMAZING. 











Such a gorgeous day to be outside!
