Today was the last day at the Residence Inn as Mike finished up his final day of work. A meeting on Maui and a flight to Kauai finished up his work here.
The kids and I started the day like every other with our leisurely breakfast at the hotel. Afterwards, they played on the putting green while I did laundry and then we ate lunch in the room. We swam for a bit again and then got ready to head to the Shops of Wailea.
The Shops of Wailea is basically an upscale collection of outdoor shops, including stores such as Louis Vuitton, Chanel, and even stores like Gap and Banana Republic. We enjoyed shopping at the ABC store where the kids picked up more souvenirs and I got Mike and I each a shirt from Malibu Shirts - great quality and made in Hawaii! You have to be careful when souvenir shopping here. Many things I looked at were made in China or Indonesia. What is the point of a souvenir from Hawaii that is not really from Hawaii?
After a bit of shopping, Mike met us here and we headed to Monkeypod for dinner again. Braden had been begging for Subway ever since we arrived in Hawaii so he just ate fries at the restaurant while the rest of us ate dinner. We then got him his beloved Subway for after. Mike and I took a slice of coconut pie back to the hotel and ate it outside by the outdoor fire tables as the kids swam as the sun set. It was a nice last day in peacful Wailea!
