Named our son as a tribute to our Maui trip...

I doubt if any of you remember me, but last year about this time I was fishing around for advice for our wedding and visit to Maui. We spent ten days on Maui, were married by the Maui Marrying Man, and had an awesome adventure.

Well..9 months and 1 day after getting married at Makena Surf Beach, we welcomed our first child last week. We named him "Kai" as a tribute to where he was conceived. His middle name is Lucas.

Here is a picture of us: http://www.mudspike.com/kai09.jpg

And here is our trip report from last year..the best time of our lives!!

Just wanted to tell everyone how magical Maui was for us, and how every time I look at our son I'll think of Maui... (We already think he has flippers for feet...good news for us!)

Oh..alright..one more picture of the little guy: http://www.mudspike.com/kai26.jpg

Thanks to everyone that made our trip so awesome!

Heard Helen Hunt, the actress, named her daughter Makena for the same reason. Congrats on your son.
