Well, it's finally here! We take off for sunny Hawaii tomorrow. We're celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary, and it's one of the few times we're taking a big vacation and one or both of the kids aren't coming with us. Last time we went to Hawaii, we met my brother and his wife, and Lindsey came along as well. We had a great time, but was a little crowded getting 5 people in the Sebring convertible.
This time we're going to Maui. Jon has the whole trip planned out. I do believe we will need another vacation to recover from all the activities. We're riding a bicycle down the mountain, road to Hana, snorkeling, Scuba lessons, SURFING lessons (he DOES know how coordinated I am), and he even is going to pilot an airplane while we're there. He just has to bring his airplane logs.
One of my best friends just found out she has a brain tumor. Needless to say she is terrified, waiting until next week to do a biopsy to find out more. Several of us are getting together today, and are putting together a big surprise for her. Can't say what it is (it does have to do with quilts though, as she is a fellow quilter), but hopefully will cheer her up and take her mind off of things. Keep Michelle in your prayers.
