Baking to survive midshifts.
I tried baking my first coffee cake and relplaced the main ingrediant (sour cream) with nonfat greek yogurt. I am such a rebel, it turned out yummy.
Dragon fruit is awesome.

Mountain biking with killer views

Finally, some single track in Hawaii. I got to ride with the two most awesome mountain bikers on Oahu. Christina Begy that I raced a 24 hour race with back in the day, she is bad ass and I discovered she has lived here for 4 years, and her amazing boyfriend Steve that is going to get along with Kevin so well he owns a construction company, sails, surfs, kite boards you name it. They showed me an awesome trail on the North Shore today that consisted of a 3 hour ride. Amazing!

A crazy downhill jump.

Then I snorkled sharks cove and saw the Hawaii state fish Humuhumunukunukuapua'a. Say that one three times fast.

Awesome visit!
We stayed busy during Kevin's visit. I counted 16 things Kevin did around the house to make my life easier. We also hiked and went to our favorite beaches. My brother at ipoxstudios took some great photos, I don't even remember my camera anymore, they are hard to top. Thanks Tav.
