Did i say we are moving

So its almost time for the move I cant bealive it!!! The movers are coming this week and then bye bye Hawaii, sunshine, and all the good food we found on the island. I cant believe we have been here five years never in a million years did I ever thought I would have the opportunity to live here. I am so thankful I did though, I learned so much about myself and have met some incredible people. It was an amazing journey and even though many ppl did hate "the rock" I can honestly say I loved it. The hubby says we will be back he would love to retire here. The way of life is so slow and when ever I go back to the mainland I always feel rushed. So some of the places I will miss will be first, North Shore Christian Fellowship they have helped me learn so much about God and love all the ppl that go. The bakery in Haleiwa totally love their turkey sandwich with fresh baked bread. Maui Mikes has some awesome sauces and their rotisserie chicken. OMG for Menchies my $8 frozen yogurt and soooo worth it :), and the Thai restaurants that I found have been so good I hope I can find one just as good in Colorado. Koolina my fav beach during winter and Waimea Bay during the summer I never did like the waves. I guess reality is hitting me that im leaving this beautiful island

So in a few weeks we will be in Colorado total opposite weather change yikes! Im a little scared because I dont like the cold very much BUT im looking forward ditching the slipp'as and wearing boots. Im looking forward to all the new adventures we will have and the wonderful new friends that we will make.

FiveFingers KSO

So about a month ago my husband kept raving about these shoes and eventually went out and got them. He was trying to get me to go buy some but I was just not into them. I mean they look weird and I have very sensitive feet where I can not walk barefoot at all. The biggest thing that kept me from getting them was how they said you have to break them in and they might hurt in the beginning because you have to get use to the feeling of being barefoot. Also the hubby took me to the store and I just got frustrated because I could not get my pinky in there and told him I was not going to spend so much time to try to put shoes on. Well I went running with a gf and she wore her fivefinger shoes and I just wore my regular running shoes. I told her how my shins always hurt when I run. She told me she had the same problems until she started running with these shoes. Soooooo yup I got sold and bought me some. I just got them to day and only walked in them but so far I like how they feel on my feet. Ounce I run and workout in them ill let yall know what I think then

Mason in the kitchen

So ounce in awhile I try to get Mason in the kitchen to help me out. He loves to help cook and every time I am in there he always wants to help me out. I hope his interest in cooking continues as he gets older and he is able to do more. I always think about how lucky his future wife will be if he knows how to

Here he is getting ready to wash some sweet potatoes

taking a break to pose for a picture

Helping me bake a friendship bread we got from our friend Gina. He loves to scoop the ingredients and pour them into the bowl. I love how effortless this is in teaching him some math since we talk about cups, 1/2 cups, teaspoons and tablespoons
