2012 Goal Met

I challenged myself at the beggining of 2012 to beat # of days bike commuting to work from the previous year. 
2011 Days = 129
2012 Days = 144

Im happy to have met my goal, though I may have set the bar too high.  I started 2013 with only 1 day in January due to vacation and snow.

Puerto Rico Frame of Mind

We recently returned from a week in the Spanish Virgin Islands, staying on Vieques, Puerto Rico.  After 9 months of anticipation, the week lived up to my dreams.  We had the most relaxing, fun time a family could have.  Of course the kids were so great traveling but it seemed our whole trip went smooth as butter.  No flight delays, no illnesses, no injuries and no whining. We just covered our white selves with sunscreen and played on the beautiful beaches.  We enjoyed our days swimming, playing Frisbee, building sand castles, surfing, and snorkeling amongst other things.  Also experienced another night on the bio luminescent bay.  Our accommodations couldn't have been better, the locals were friendly and the weather was perfect.  We all left the island wishing we could stay feeling thankful for the opportunity to enjoy a vacation and looking forward to a return trip.
