Kendall Mountain Ski, Silverton, Colorado

Matt learned to down hill ski last year so this year we decided to introduce MQ to skiing and he loves it!  His favorite part is riding the chair lift to the top and we hope to get more practice in next year, since the snow is mostly finished for this year.

MQ rode the chairlift with Matt while I worried all by myself behind them.

Father and son on skis. Love!

A holiday trip to the family cabin to visit grandparents.  A winter wonderland after the heat and humidity of Hawai’i.

Waikoloa and Volcano, The Big Island, Hawai’i

This has the potential to be a HUGE post because we spent two glorious weeks, for our first ever trip to Hawai’i.  It couldn’t have been a more perfect adventure – beaches, volcanoes, dolphins, waterfalls, manta rays, sea turtles, Kona coffee, and so much more!  We have fallen deeply in love.

Our first week was spent at a resort while Matt worked with the many Mozillians.


Our second week was spent near Volcanoes National Park. Here’s MQ exiting a lava tube.


My birthday was celebrated at Punalu’u Beach Park one of the only accessible black sand beaches.


We bushwhacked in to Waiale Falls – so worth it!


Kilauea Iki Trail which takes you through the lava lake of Kilauea Crater.


On the way to the airport and MQ requested a beach. So we stopped at ‘Ahu’ena Heiau (King Kamehameha’s temple).
