As predicted, the weekend was FAB. Steamboat is a beautiful town (in more ways than just the one above!). We went hiking, checked out the HOT springs, danced our butts off and tossed back a few. My girls worked hard at making my b’day a super special one and it was very rejuvenating to be with such an awesome group of women. We all see the world in a similar way, though some of us stay home and some of us work and we vary in age by up to 10 years (I’m the baby in case you’re wondering!). We had lots and lots of good conversation (including the 4hour+ drive home – car on fire=traffic).
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, my better half was fearlessly mustering the troops all on his own. They worked in Daddy’s shop. They went grocery shopping (and bought mostly yogurt from the looks of the fridge?) and on an outing to the aluminum supply store.
Then we got to celebrate birthdays with the extended family. We had a very lovely dinner – fried chicken! – and desserts. I received lovely gifts, including a family portrait from Tabby, kisses from Ben, some very nice software from Matt, and some cute clothing from my mom and sister. Not to mention the lovely birthday wishes from folks near and far. I am truly truly blessed!!
