A large volume of adventures may be grasped within this little span of life, by him who interests his heart in everything. - Laurence Sterneoft... I LOVE that quote!!!!!!

My sisters and I have always held dear to our hearts a major load of passion to see all, do all, and touch all.  Perhaps that is why we seem to land just about everywhere we ever dream to go. Feet in the sand, in oceans, on boats, on top of bike pedals and surfboards, on rocky and paved roads too. They inspire me, I inspire them, we inspire each other, our dreams become shared and realized together...
Tonight my younger sister Brooke, bro n' law, and nephew are flying off island to begin a 3 month long bike ride across the mainland.  Sunday they begin with a 5 hour ride and while I'm on bike that day too, we will think of each other, both out chasing a dream, following a path we once entertained now become reality.  The difference is they will wake up everyday for 3 months and ride, seeing all of the cool state parks, national parks, and sights some only dream to take in.  I'm inspired thinking on it, wide eyed just wondering all they will experience.  And what a cool thing to share as a small family just beginning life it!  You can follow them here:  Nelson Family.

Despite the joy I hold for them, life on the island will not be the same and my heart is already missing them tremendously.  But with all dreams, sometimes we have to move our feet to actually land in the possibility of having the dream happen. Off they go, inspired I am, and with that I'm encouraged to go soak up more of the opportunities this life holds for us!  ALL THE BEST Nelson family, chase them dreams down!!

Kainoa is also living out some dreams too, small kind, like big slides...

Good night from the Big Island,

That has to be the big slide that I stared at in the distance during most of our runs. Forget kid dreams- that looks like a ridiculous amount of fun.
What a cool adventure your sister & her family are heading out on! Definitely will have to read about it!

Hey Bree! Just read your blog and am so excited to see nick and your sister are biking. What's cool trip! Just wanted to let you know I live in point Roberts and am in Bellingham all the time. If they need a ride anywhere we have a big truck. Or if they forgot anything we can bring it to them! So please pass this on. Would love to help if I can!!

the world is so big and with so much to see and we spend such a long time in just one place....or 2 in my case. We all dream of a big road trip someday.
