A full day with the kids, before I travel for 2 weeks

Today, I took a day off from work to spend a little more time with the kids before I leave on a business trip for 2 weeks. It started with breakfast at Amanda's school where they make fresh bread every morning. It was really good and Jake loved having bk with Amanda. She is such a good role model
Then Jake and I headed over to the Navy bx store for a little shopping and Jake wanted his picture taken by the waterfall

Then, it was back to pick up Amanda and take them to the Hickam Officer's club for lunch (stir-fry). Now this was an incredible lunch as you can see there was only one more person having lunch when we got there (several more showed up later). These guys are so good in a restaurant
And to top it off with a game of "thumb war" at a Mexican restaurant.
I leave late tonight for a week in Macon, GA then a week in Oklahoma City. Hopefully it will go by quick and will be good weather.

Not what you want to see 5 min. before a bike ride

Today was going to be the normal Tuesday HACC lunch time hammer fest. I came home got dressed pumped up the tires placed the water bottle in the cage and started to head out when I noticed the rear tire wasn't rolling. After a little investigation I noticed one of the spokes had broke allowing the wheel to become out-of-round. So that meant no riding for me. Dropped wheel off at the local bike shop tonight and since it's under warranty they are going to try and replace the wheel (this is the 2nd spoke that's broke). At least it didn't break while I was riding, I suppose.
