Home Trip

One of the perks of living and working in the sticks is that, once a month, you get a (whole) Friday and a (whole) Monday off to take a (fully paid for) trip to your loved ones - love it!  That might sound like a mighty long weekend, but, believe me, once you start cramming it full of get-togethers and treats and other fun stuff, it simply flashes by.

Here are some highlights:

1.  An awesome evening of catching up and talking and laughing with an amazing bunch of friends!  Tanya treated us to her fine baking skills (green-and-brown "eco-friendly" cupcakes - delicious!!) and a little someone entertained us with all the new words that he's learnt.  Friends truly are a blessing from Above.

The blue team.
Willie and I making a dash for Tanya's fine baking!

2.  Being the No. 1 fan of this champ at a local cycling race.  He kicked some serious butt!

Before the start of the race.  It was freeeeezing!

3.  Two (yes TWO) visits to Kauai for the best take-out meals E-VER!  (In my books, at least.  Willie often feels the strong urge to add to the awesomeness that is Kauai with a side of McD fries.  Sigh.)

Moroccan Beef Wrap plus a Supergreen Smoothie.  Perfect.  (Willie's french fries are hidden from sight :) .)

4.  A trip with Willie and the pups to what must be doggy heaven!  We hiked for one-and-a-half wonderful hours.

Max and Zip leading the way.

Also mixed in there were a few hours of healthy-stuff shopping to take back to Kathu (accompanied by quite a bit of eye-rolling from Willie...) and some super fun runs.  Refreshed and ready to take on the world?  You bet!
