This year's birthday was a bit different. I played handbells in the morning, so that ate away half the day, but then I wanted to go on a hike with my fam - a three-year tradition now.
Because of Dad's recent back surgery, we chose the Lower/Old Salmon River Trail, a flat, easy hike along the river - about 5 miles in all. Thankfully, it was "cooler" in the shade by the water.
We were starving by the time we got there, so we quickly found a spot by the river and put out our lunch spread: fruit, cheese and crackers:
It's a really gorgeous area.
Unfortunately, Eryn caught a nasty cold last week and opted to stay home and not spread her germs.
After, we returned to our house to nosh on red velvet cheesecake Brad bought for me - yum! :)
