Bill & Cathie

We had a great time visiting with our friends from Colorado yesterday.  Bill is one of Richards' Fraternity Brothers.  They reconnected through Facebook and LinkedIn, after MANY (many...many...) years.
Bill and Cathie live in Golden Colorado, which is home to Colorado School of Mines - Bill & Richards' Alma Mater.  They enjoyed visiting Oregon and are headed a bit further north to the Orcas Islands.  They love Indian food - so I made a feast for their enjoyment.

One of our local sites that they enjoyed was Silver Falls State Park. Unfortunately I was still at work when Richard drove them up there.  The three of them had a lovely afternoon, including a short hike around the falls.

We hope to visit them in Colorado sometime next year.  It's always fun to visit with friends - and even more sweet when the years apart simply melt away - and it feels like yesterday when you visited last.

One of my blogging friends in cyber-space, Jason, just posted a great story about his recent "glamping" trip.  Those of you that really know me, know that I have NO desire to EVER go camping.  The words camping, and roughing it, just aren't this Princess' vocabulary.  But after reading about Jason's adventure - I just might be considering this new alternative.... "Glamping".

Read his adventure HERE.  He had me at electricity, wood floor, beds and fine wine!

Happy Birthday Garden Party

Our good friend, Robin, turned the BIG FOUR-OH this year.  We wanted to do something special for him, so a birthday party seemed like a GREAT idea.

It was a perfect day for a garden party!  Absolutely gorgeous weather and our yard looked great with all the tables and chairs set up.

Lots of yummy food and drink for everyone to enjoy!

No birthday party would be complete without delicious cake and singing off-key!

Blow out the candles and make a wish!

Three of Robin's four kids helped with the celebration!
It was really a perfect day - filled with love and celebration for a special friend.  Happy Birthday, Robin!  Hope this year is the best year yet!
