The last of the beach...

Beach and the Crab

I don't think there is much you can say to this....
This reminded me of footprints in the sand...
I was sitting on the beach and this crab and I had a little stare down contest.

I won -- I got the photo!

Zip Line

We went on the Zip Line which was totally amazing!
Ok, I will admit it was scarier than sin walking off the platform into-
But after about the 3rd time, it got a bit easier. Here are a few photos.

Yep, we walked across this bridge!

You can see how high off the ground we actually were!

Erika zipping across....

Beach Photos

A few photos of the beach in front of our condo.

Luau- Friday night

We went to a Luau last night and it was so much fun! When we first arrived there were so many cute couples (I came here to get away from that!) Anyways, after a few drinks the excitement picked up. We sat next to locals who were dancers at the show and were off for the night. They had decided to be part of the audience. I sat next to the cutest boy, who I called Honu (Hawaiin for sea turtle). He told me about every dancer and explained that they all look out for one another. Erika had to get on stage and dance. Seriously this was so much fun! Here are a few pictures.

Erika and I.

Honu and I - I couldn't pronounce his real name.

The guy with the maroon and white striped shirt on was hilarious, he was having a hard time keeping up with the dancer so he did his own- the "sprinkler". I think we almost peed our pants we laughed so hard but what a great sport he was.

This little boy just walked up on stage when they were pulling men out of the audience, so they made his dad come up with him (his Dad is next to him in the picture). He followed everything the dancers were doing. He was adorable!
Erika on stage dancing. I am sooo glad I did not have to go, I cannot shake my hips like that!

These people were at the Luau- I couldn't help but get a photo of them. Is it legal to wear plaid and stripes and can you say "PIMP DADDY"??? (I'm going to hell for that...)

Soma Tri

This is dedicated to the most amazing woman I know:


2 years ago, Dara was training for the SOMA Half Ironman. She was hit by a car while riding her bike (yep, training) and very lucky to be alive. After months of recovery and surgeries, she was able to start working out again. The woman's pain tolerance is unbelievable and I wish I had half the endurance she does. She completed the tri on Oct. 28 (her birthday) with 2 stress fractures in 1 foot, 1 stress fracture in the other foot. Oh and she was also still recovering from having pnuemonia 2 weeks prior to the race. Not to mention the injury to her knee from being hit by that dang truck! She truly is amazing and such an inspiration to me! I'm so very blessed to know this woman and to have such an encouraging friend!

Her cutest boy ever- Ron!
He finished 1 minute sooner than his old college days-
GO Turbo Husker!!

Dara, Madeline (cutest daughter) and Ron after the race-

1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, 13.1 mile run
