Maia is my daughter's best friend. You see, since my daughter moved to Seattle to attend Law School (law school schmall school I say), we make Maia come over here and we pretend she is our daughter, we even call her our daughter's name. Just kidding. We actually call her "Maipie". I love her to death. So, without further adieu, here is Maia...
She might kill me when she sees that I've posted a photo of her from the 8th grade in here. I have an evil streak. I really do. Back to the point. Maia came over to share some photos with us. Photos of her most recent adventure. An amazing adventure that blew my mind. Maia went to Africa.
Maia is now going to share a few of her photos with us so we can go to Africa and CLIMB MOUNT KILIMANJARO AND GO ON A SAFARI with her and her family. These stunning images were taken by her father, David, who is amazingly enough, not a professional photographer. The captions were provided by little Miss Maia herself. These photo's are so awesome you are going to want to click and enlarge them for better viewing. Honestly - let's go to Africa.

Amazing no? What a thing to have experienced. Thank you so much for sharing Maia.
