Bird Day

The rain brought out so many birds this week. Some plump robins took turns in the bird bath (photo by Hadley). And a dozen turkeys roamed the yard. I feel offially ancient for how happy this all made me.

The celebration for Bastien’s 10th has begun! Per his request, we cracked open the trail and had an excellent MTB party. The Trail View Cafe was rocking, finally stocked with the items from its menu: Italian soda, chocolate milk, cowboy coffee, and water. (We also had highly controversial beer).

We rode the trail, made some trail mix, had some grilled pizza, carved up some more on s’mores-on-a-stick… and then for the grand finale, rode down to DQ for some ice cream cake.

I decided I want the exact same birthday party plus a bonfire (since DQ won’t be open). Bastien’s ideas were so much fun. I’m glad he invited us to his party.

10AM Wednesday Tee Time

Hadley did something really helpful recently and I told her I’d reward her. She picked mini golf for her reward. It was about the most fun we’ve ever had on a Wednesday. On one hole she got a sneaky hole in two, except we didn’t figure it out for quite a while (because as I said, sneaky). When we finally realized it was in the hole we laughed and laughed and high fived and then I think it took me 32 shots to make the same hole. Yep, best Wednesday ever.
