My birthday was Saturday. Happy Birthday to Me! It was a really nice weekend to celebrate.
We started the weekend off by going to the Juniper Valley Ranch dining room with Miss D on Friday evening. Really good home cookin'! (And look - Miss D and I are both wearing our turquoise necklaces!)
Saturday morning we took off for the mountains. Uncle Markle met us up there and took me off for my birthday present. I've been asking him for a gun safety lesson, and I got that and more! I am now the proud owner of my own BB gun. Look at what a great shot I am!
Later Cousin Hannah and our friends Kerri, Chris and Noah all joined us for dinner. It was an amazing fondue spread! (Thanks, Kerri!)
Plus I got a chocolate birthday cake complete with pumpkins (a birthday tradition for me!)
I had requested a complaint-free hike from the kids for my birthday present. We headed out this morning. It was a perfect day and a great hike, although there was still a bit of complaining! (The kids always complain at the beginning, but once we get going, they always love hiking!)
A few other photos from our hike...
