Just plain typical of me. Another two months, poof. I swear I wish I could be better about updating more.

Mamala Bay Golf Course, yes the water is that blue!

Over the last couple of months a lot has happened. Primarily Erin and I had a vacation to Hawaii. In almost 20 years together we had never been on a real vacation. Three days here and there but never more than a week. So this was very special as we also never had a real Honeymoon.

We were very fortunate to share the experience with good friends Chris and Jeff. They both had been to Oahu before and served as amazing tour guides and chauffeurs! We golfed, hiked, swam in the ocean, had some truly wonderful meals, went sight seeing on several military bases, and got to really relax. I did miss Kaya terribly but I knew she was in the best of hands with Grammy.

Kaya sure is busy.


One of the only sunsets I was able to capture, but it was worth it.

Chaz and Desiree also finally got a Burley trailer for baby Devin so we have tried to take advantage of the few days that we have had sun the past two months. We have ridden out at Buchli Station, The River Trail, and our standard Downtown / Yogurt loop.

We also made it to Drakes Bay for Kaya’s first real beach trip. She had been to Santa Cruz but she did not get a chance to get wet on that trip. This time we were ready. She was apprehensive at first and even cried a little when the cold water rolled over her feet but she soon took to it like a duck to water. The Kuhn’s were in full effect as well with baby Devin.

Snappy Snappy

Looking directly into the sun I noticed the reflection adjusted to 1/400th for my shutter and snapped this one. I really like the silhouette.

So far great start to the summer. We had to cancel our camping trip last weekend because of weather but are heading up in July. Plus I am heading up Half Dome in June. A lot more to look forward to this summer!
