Today is my 50th birthday! Woo hoo! It’s so weird! But I have enjoyed getting older. I always recommend it to my students. It’s so interesting, and filled with unexpected surprises!
Yesterday we did some Upcountry things. We started with a drive to the top of Haleakala. There were lots of clouds, so the view at the top was otherworldly. Also, there was snow! Some people made a tiny snowman and did snow angels:
On our way down the mountain, we stopped at the Ocean Vodka distillery. The tour there is so interesting and fun.
Lauren was most excited about meeting Thomas the cat.
In the evening, we had a party at my place. Some coworkers from school were able to stop by. Great company and great fun. We tried out a present Brent sent me in the mail. It’s a game that tests your speed at pushing a button faster than your opponents – if you’re last, you get shocked!
