Birthday Brad

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!

This was from my party last night.

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!

    That game!! It is so awful and hilarious. For you readers, I was the first one shocked and the first to swear off the game forever. Other people are brave. 🙂

    Today is your real birthday! Happy honest-to-goodness birthday, Brad! Thanks for sharing your island with us!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRAD! Sounds like you had a shocking good time at your party! We used to have an electric fence around our property, i never knew it could have been entertainment? I got entertained a couple of times…. it was not pretty! How fun to see snow, i know your guests miss it and it made them feel at home. Let the adventures continue! I know you are having so much fun!
