My birthday is this week. Somehow birthday's in our family always seem to merge into Birthday Week. That's definitely the case for me this year. Tomorrow night my Mom is throwing a little party for me at her house. Then Wednesday, my actual birthday, Mr. P and I are going out for a dinner date! Then Thursday morning we leave for the annual family camping trip with my Dad and we'll celebrate my birthday at the camp site.
I love camping. It is truly one of my favorite memories growing up and it's something I still look forward to every year. I love being outside, the smell of the lake, coffee cooking on the camp fire, fish frying, and campfire smoke. I love reading in the hammock and sitting on the dock with my sister. And I love love love to swim in the lake. This year I am going to climb Mt. Theilsen with my Dad and brother. It's a 14 mile hike! Wish me lots of luck.
So I'm off for a few days of birthday celebrations and a good long weekend at the lake with my family.
Oh and as a side note: Julie & Julia was great. It had so many things I love, food, cooking, Julia Child and blogs! I highly recommend it.
