I didn't bring the cord for my camera but I have taken a few with my phone.  This is the view from the wind swept top of Winter Park ski resort. It's a mile to mile and a half hike from the chair lift to this spot.  The bowls we skied are behind us on this picture.  It was a beautiful day and we did the hike both days.  It was worth it.  I'd like to say this picture sums up the three days I got to spend at my family's place in Colorado.

Almost a Month Late

Here Abbie and I are blowing out my start shaped candles.  My sister-in-law made me a cake and even dinner.  Due to some other circumstances I barely made it up to Tahoe before Abbie needed to go to bed so I had cake before dinner.  Also, the family decorated the kitchen and dinning room for me.  There were blue balloons, "Auntie's favorite color" and streamers as well as a sigh that said "Happy Birthday Auntie".  After the long day and drive I had that night it was all greatly appreciated.    Not to get too sentimental, but i love my family.  Each part, AIAV, Ta, and The 'rents, each are their own individuals and support me in their own way and for this past birthday I needed the support they gave me.
