Travis and I had an opportunity to go to Maui without the kids and were so excited to have some time together. Unfortunately the trip didn't turn out quite as we had imagined thanks to a little thing I came down with--or should I say broke out with--SHINGLES. One word--OUCH. After our Ragnar race I thought I had a spider bite but it kept getting worse and hurting so we decided to go over to the urgent care and get something for it before we headed to Hawaii. The doctor took one look at it and said, "Uh, that's not a spider bite, you have shingles". WTH. So the doctor gave me lots of medication and assured me as long as I stay covered and dry it was not a problem for me to go to Maui. Great. Sounds fun.
Here I am, very covered and dry on our balcony.Travis although I'm sure was somewhat bored was great to take care of me and a good sport. I mostly stayed in bed the whole time other than a few brief exits for food and one snorkeling trip where I drugged up and suffered the consequences later.
Here are some pictures of the before mentioned snorkeling trip. It was fun and the turtles were awesome.
Well, I can't say it was the romantic getaway we had planned but we did enjoy being together and a HUGE Thank You to my mom and dad for taking care of the kids while we were gone.
