My sister Lydia might can take it but 26 miles on a bike is enough to wear me out, even if it is all downhill. Today Grant and I completed the trek down Haleakala (about 6500 ft from our staring point to end). It took us 3 hours to make it all the way down with stopping to have a picnic, climb a few trees and buy fruit from a local orchard. We even passed several bikers riding up.

We ended the day by relaxing at the beach. Ahhh, what a day.

****As a side note, my sister in law gave me the neatest wrap for Christmas. Quite timely since we were headed to Hawaii. So begins my, how may ways can I tie it. This is wrap #2 (my favorite so far).

Aloha and Mele Kalikimaka

It's another year and another New Year's trip. This year's destination? HAWAII!!!

Xan is staying home with his grandparents (let the spoiling begin) and this is the first trip Grant and I have taken alone since he was born. I miss him already but am looking forward to hanging with Grant.

Tune in here for all the accounts of our Hawaiian adventures!
