We Love to Fly and It Shows

Not much has changed. BTW, swiped this from my fellow ex Texan in Seattle blog, Clayton Barrel.

Car vs. Bike vs. Race Bike

Something for all you motorcycle fans...

Gabby Me

I recalled an interesting Maui story today, one I almost forgot, about meeting Gabby Reece when we were there. Lindsay and I were looking to see if an Italian restaurant in a strip mall (everything in Maui is in a strip mall) was still open and parked so I could run over and see, but it was closed. As I trotted back to tell Lindsay this I passed a tall gal on the sidewalk (with baby in her arms) if she knew somewhere Lindsay and I should eat. She suggested the sushi place behind her, but we had just had sushi the night before, so that was out. We chatted about how Lindsay and I were just married (Gabby was very congratulatory), about our friend Cara's kid, about having kids, and that she didn't know any other place to eat, because she was from the other side of the island. Nice gal, for sure. About half way through talking to her I recognized, that she was Gabby Reece, and the surfer who was just talking to her before I asked her about the recommendation was her hubby Laird Hamilton. Gabby was really friendly - great island attitude. Lindsay pointed out that she was especially nice, and talkative, considering she was breast feeding her baby under a shoulder cloth as I stood there! Oops. My bad. Not being around women breast feeding very often I didn't get it and now I'm embarrassed that I was chatting with her while she was feeding her kid. Anyways, nice gal even with slow guys like me.

All That Money and No Brains

Worst PR video ever. MSFT claimed that it was a joke when the press called them on how campy it is, but since when is Microsoft funny?

Mo' Maui, Mo' Memories

When you take 776 pictures on your honeymoon it takes a while to sort through them. Until I get them all done here's a few more. The first is our beloved Jeep. A must when in Maui. Nothing is more fun or more forgiving. This was taken on the road to Hana. The other is a palm tree branch from a beautiful botanical garden we visited. More to come!

Will You Maui Me?

What a long strange trip it's been. We're back in Seattle, it feels like we've been gone a month, rather than just two weeks. Nice to be back (even if we're secretly dreading real life again). I'm hoping to getting the energy to post all the wedding and Maui pics online, but until then here's one from our last day, at the Maui aquarium.

In Maui, Life is Good

I'm in Maui, with my wife Lindsay, and life is good. We're exploring the island between hardcore sessions of (what newlyweds do best) relaxation and recovery from wedding stress. By the way, the wedding in Dallas was perfect. We saw the love and support of our wonderful friends and family all come together at once and it was amazing. We hope to pay it forward. Ok, Maui is calling again. We're about to take a sunset sailing tour. Many pics to come later, when we're back mainland side. Aloha!
