Maui 2010

Falling in love with Maui...so easy to do! Sandy beaches, warm sun, beautiful blue ocean, friendly people, Costco, cheap road cycle shoes, and Boss Frogs - need I say more!

The hottest guys on the beach!
Sunrise on Haleakala at 10,023 feet.
Then a bike tour down that had me and Bonnie laughing so hard I'm surprised we made it off the mountain. Oh, Jesse, where did you learn to ride like that? And cute little newlywed, did you ever learn how to ride at all?

Absolutely incredible scenery (even me and my camera couldn't take a bad picture)!

The "Road to Hana" - not meant for the car sick. 50 miles in 4 hours.
Along the way you see groves of "Painted Eucalyptus" - yes, they are real.
Breathtaking views, black sand beaches, and one rude vegetarian named Hans who owns Cafe Romantica - "appeerantly" sitting in Hawaiian sea salt for 4 hours a day will cure all ills. Uhhh, could I get a prescription for that?
Heading to Molokini to snorkel.

Ka'anapali Ocean Resort
Our home away from home - beautiful. We never did get our Westin bags!
Everywhere you turn you see spectacular and different scenery...all equally beautiful!
Jimmy Buffet was right - there really are "Cheeseburgers in Paradise"!! Who knew?

Yep, falling in love with Hawaii, very easy to do, and I am going back someday!

Happy 26th Birthday Ben!

Happy Happy day - that Thanksgiving Eve 26 years ago!
You have brought so much joy, laughter, and fun into our home for all of these years. I used to feel bad that you don't have a brother, but then I remember how I feel about mine and how the girls feel about you and I no longer feel sad..."sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero" (Marc Brown)!!

Love you Ben!!

The Tri: 8 people - 8 bikes - Lots of Medals - Lots of Fun

Are we having fun yet?

Tired of waking up at:

Having a bad hair day - everyday!

Smelling of eau de chlorine!

Hurting everywhere!!

Complaining to last a lifetime - just ask Bill.

Have I had fun training - welllllll?

Will I do it again? - I'll let you know in 3 days.
