happy birthday to paul

Today was Paul's birthday.
When I was planning this trip I intentionally planned it over his birthday.
He loves this place. We BOTH love this place. I couldn't imagine a better gift for him.
About 13 years ago we were introduced to this hike up to a quartz mine from my aunt and uncles property. It was 11 years ago that we hiked it last. Just months before we found out we were pregnant with Brigg. We have so many photos from our hikes up there. Just the 2 of us. SUCH DIFFERENT PEOPLE back then. I hardly recognize us.
So it was fitting that we hike up the mountain again today, with our 3 children, 11 years later.
Justvas amazing as we remembered. Completely different feel with the kids.
So much better.
WE are so much better. But man, we still have a long ways to go.
So thankful we get to do it together.
Happy birthday stinks.
Love you so much.
(Oh...and fyi. ..the kids are in bed and we r recovering from our hike with the children by sitting by the fire with a bottle of tequila.)
