And eight comes only once.
We took the birthday opportunity to go to a place, Salt Creek Falls, we have only communally experienced in the winter. The kids know salt creek falls from out sledding and snowshoeing adventures. It was a great evening dinner picnic option. Becky was still flying back from a conference in Connecticut.
Today I gave Becky her birthday gift. I got her a guitar stand and a new hat. The perfect combo to help someone move into a new place, a new level of interest in an old skill and a new look/persona to go with the music.
