Matt and Amie on their informative tour of Seattle life. They will have plenty to tell Tetonia.
Matt... this one is all for you. I know you really wanted to borrow her pony bag.
Uh, yup. That's what you think it is.
Tofurky anyone? Could this really sell anywhere outside of Seattle? Honestly.
Magical wonders to behold.

Another Seattle festival...folk life.

Dueling swords.

Dueling violins.

Dueling with fashion sense.

More on industrial picnicking.

Conquering the steam room... err whatever.

Canon T1i is rebel without a cause.

An assortment of lenses means that I have a lot of learning to do.

Trial run at Gasworks park. The kites came out for the break in weather.

Seattle people explode in sunny weather because of vitamin D deprivation.

28th Birthday Belated Blogging

In April I turned 28. A decidedly good thing for many reasons, including two surprise strawberry tarts from two amazing people. Stephanie and Becky have super power senses to read my mind.

I was shocked at all of the ways people celebrated with me... all forms of technological messaging such as phone calls, singing voicemails, facebook messages, emails, texts, plus parties, gifts, cards... even ones sent and received in my actual tangible mailbox. Whoa. Where did all of these nice people come from and why are they being so nice to me?

Last year my birthday included a hike in the Himalayas and a surprise party with Tibetan Monks, so I wasn't expecting the flood of excitement from all of my friends and family to seem so epic. But a meal at the Indian Bistro not only brought back the memories and excitement of last years adventures, but made me realize there are some pretty radical things happening at 28.

And, I have to mention the talent show, which happened to fall on my birthday where some fabulous people performed... I think just for me. Okay, they were competing for glory, but I thought it was for me.

Thanks everyone for celebrating with me in April!

**Steph, I would have posted pictures from the surprise party, but it seems I was enjoying it so much I have none!

A game involving flying sticks seemed like it should be good novel material for Collin. I'm anxiously awaiting the first line of the book based on this photo if someone would like to take a stab at it.
