25 and feeling Alive!

Thank you to everyone for the Birthday wishes! My Birthday week was so great. Each day was a celebration. My roommate and her family started it all out with kidnapping me for breakfast followed with kayaking, games, Birthday dinner and cake. My soccer girls also had a treat in store for me. My Colorado BFF came out to visit for both of our birthdays! We had a lot of fun together. We hiked a few of my favorite hikes (Muanawili and 3 peaks), we went to the Big Island and explored Kona and Hilo viewing active volcanoes, waterfalls, black sand beach, ran a half marathon, jumped off Waimea rock, ate Acai bowls, went surfing, had a beach bonfire, went camping, went to a Polynesian dance show, climbed trees, played soccer with my BYU team, and laughed lots :)

I am looking forward to this year, because each each just gets better and better !!!!

Pretty Hot And Tempting

We won .... we beat the Wildcats 37-34.

My soccer girls put in 2 intramural basketball teams. One team asked me to play and I got my roommate to play with us (she is a former college basketball player). Very close very fun very intense !

Heaven is only a stairway away!

Hawaii not only has beautiful beaches, but also a lot of beautiful mountains. Being a Colorado girl, I love hiking. Lately, we have been exploring all that Oahu has to offer. A group of us went on a hike that I have been wanting to do since I got here. You can see it from the freeway and it looks pretty scary. It is an actual 'stairway' that is led by 4,000 stairs straight up the side of a mountain. We left at 4 in the morning so we could see the sunrise. It was gorgeous. When we started it was dark except for the moon which led our way up and it looked as though we were climbing right towards it! It was pretty windy!
We started down by the freeway.

Staring out at HeavenOn our way down, holding on for dear life.
