How I Spent My Birthday (which was 9-16)
We awoke in our cabin and David crawled out of the warm covers to build this:
Yes it did make the cabin nice and toasty, and a perfect place to sit with David, drink our morning coffee, and read the day's readings out of Treasury of Daily Prayer.
Later that morning, the kids took us on a hike. They wanted to show us:
Down the trail we went,
until reaching the peaceful lake.
At one point someone looked up and said, "Look there is an eagle!"
And then we saw two (they really are there, but were flying so high they look so small):
That evening we had a cookout in one of the camp's outposts.
Sam roasted the perfect marshmallow for me to enjoy on my graham cracker.
And then the kids gave me their gift, I thought it was perfect.
As we walked back to the cabin, the sunset over the lake was beautiful. A nice end to a nice day.
