We Crossed the Border

And they almost didn't let us come back
My passport is in the mail I swear

Last week we spent our days playing with our favorite beach buddies
Walking in the cold water

Looking for sea shells

Getting chased by big wet dogs

And eating fish tacos every day
It was perfect

25 years old... my mother she told me so

(what's the next line to that song?)

Last week Ben turned 25 years old
That's 5 times older than when he wore cowboy boots and shorts to kindergarden
He's a quarter of the way to being 100 and
he's now closer to 30 than he is to 20.

To celebrate we went out to dinner at a Venesuelan place called
My Arepa, which we highly recommend
and then met up with Brittany and Brady for an Improv Comedy show

The next day we packed ourselves up and headed off to go hiking and camping
On the hike we got to have our last snowball fight of the season

Hiking was a lot of fun but we didn't plan for enough time. It wasn't too long of a hike but we couldn't finish because the sun was starting to go down and we still needed to set up camp.
We plan on making time for this one again

On our way to the campsite we saw a bunch of wild turkeys

We forgot to bring the converter pump for the air mattress
 so we slept on the cold, hard ground
inside the cold, small tent...
It was cold... real cold

Besides our sleeping arrangements it was a fun trip.
We were the only ones on our hike and the only ones at the campsite.

This is not where we camped
but we found this sweet spot where we'll be camping next time...
Anyone want to come?

Happy Birthday Ben!
