Hiking Makapuu for my 34th BIRTHDAY!!

Our 1st Hawaii exploration and we hiked about 3 miles up 200 ft. elevation to a lightlouse lookout called Makapuu. Talk about gorgeous!!! We were all wore out at the end of the day, but what a great way to celebrate getting a year older and spending time with the family!

Biking adventures in western Michigan! This ride takes me to my monthly goal of 60 miles riding!! woohoo!!

And to finish the day off, we celebrated a special little girls 1st birthday, Heath style!! MA's ice cream shop! We had pizza, an ice cream bar, and a pinata!! MA is walking, babbling, and growing up far too quickly for my liking. She loves to cuddle in blankets and thinks puppets are hilarious. She'll also sit down to listen to a story. She's adventurous and bold and fits in nicely with the family. I can't wait to see what she has in store for us this next year of her life!

More visiting

We're super lucky to have such an incredible family! Mom & I went shopping with MJ this morning. We had Kirsty for a little while this morning so while the guys went golfing we took a retail breather. It was a lot of fun to hang out solo with mom AND MJ. Doesn't happen very often at all. MJ can be a little pistol while shopping though. Whew, she knows how to keep you on your toes!

Later in the day we had more family come over for a last minute visit. We'll be leaving soon, so we're gearing up for the goodbyes. :-(
