Napali Coast

A few weeks ago, Candice and I set out on an adventure to Kauai. We hike the Napali Coast. It is 11 miles in to the gorgeous beach. We had such a fun, crazy adventure the entire 4 days we were there, starting with the lack of preparation the day we got there. So many hilarious things happened (5 hitch hiked rides, ghost stories that freaked us out, "Wild" who showed us pics of him surfing in the 60's, spaghettios, "Spirit" and Andre the seashell men, the naked women, the hidden book store, our makeshift tarp tent, getting rained out, cuddling with the fire and each other, my bulging belly, no buses on Sunday, Bronco fans, $50 change fee, and much more!

This hike was amazingly gorgeous the entire 11 miles. We found hidden waterfalls, I saw moments of Colorado's beauty mixed with beautiful beaches. Definitely the prettiest hike I have ever done! I highly recommend it to everyone. It took us about 7 hours to hike in and we hiked out in 2 days, stopping halfway.
"Aint about how fast I get there, aint about whats waiting on the other side ... its the climb!"
Thank you Miley Cyrus


I enjoyed every step (even if I can't pick up my feet) with you. I love all the adventures we have been on, but I mostly enjoy the journey it takes getting there. Thanks for the memories !!

I was lucky enough to be able to go home to Colorado for Thanksgiving this year and be with my whole family. It was awesome to see everyone. Good food and great times! It is hard being so far away, but I manage to see everyone a few times a year which is good. Hopefully I will get a few visitors out to Hawaii this year!! All the kiddos ... and yes I am wearing a flower, sometimes I feel like I am Hawaiian, then I remember I'm not.

This was taken right when Elsie got home from her mission a year and a half ago. I am so Thankful for family ... its the greatest treasure one can have!

Pipeline Photo Shoot

The biggest surf competitions in the world have been happening the last few months. Haleiwa, Sunset, and Pipeline (the Triple Crown of Surfing). Last year I only new the name Kelly Slater when it came to the surfing world. Being in Colorado and Utah I was more into the snow scene, so it has been fun converting to a beach/ocean lover (which I totally am!!) Pipeline is always awesome to watch, but this year the Eddie Aikau competition at Waimea went on due to the huge waves we've been having. Now THAT (the Eddie) was AMAZING! I seriously got the chills watching it.

This is just a few of the pictures we took during our photo shoot (which actually lead us to a job working during the Pipe Masters, thanks to my hot roomie in her bue bikini haha)
