Happy Birthday to Me

I had a wonderful birthday this year.

Started with my annual run across and back the I-90 floating bridge.  Nothing like running on water to make you feel invincible.  My good friend Tamie came with me for the run.

After a wonderful breakfast  of crepes cooked by Becky…

We headed out on Brett’s pick from our summer fun jar to hike the Bus Loop Trail at Tiger Mtn.  It is just about a mile long and he was a trooper.  Something about putting on a camelback makes him be able to go that much further.  Bring along a friend and Becky doesn’t even know how long we’ve been hiking.

It still amazes me everything to wonder how this bus got into the middle of nowhere all those years ago.

We rewarded Becky for finishing reading the first 15 books of her summer reading program by getting some frozen yogurt.

Next part of my birthday was to do something I’ve been dreaming and hoping to do for years….   start my headboard out of kitchen cabinets…

got our supplies and had the 4×4 post cut at Home Depot…

Lastly we headed across the I-90 bridge to a sounders game and saw this man waving his flags..  loved it…
