The long birthday is over…

Well, we’re back in Clearwater. We came back tonight. The super long birthday weekend has ended but in case you’re wondering, here’s how it went down.

On Friday my SIL and I shopped all day and then we came home, quickly changed picked up the rest of the family and hit up the mall for even more shopping.

Saturday – The actual Birthday

I got up early and hit the trail for 5 really easy miles.

The Legacy TrailIt was the perfect way to start the day. After running I showered and we all went to some garage sales where we scored some pretty awesome stuff.

At around 6, we headed out to dinner.

I am fortunate in that I share my birthday with my nephew and he is visiting so we actually got to spend our birthdays together. My SIL’s birthday is a week earlier than ours so it was a celebration for the three of us.

After the drum circle we headed back to the house where my SIL had a LEGO cake that she made for my nephew:

And that was my birthday adventure.

Now, I’m off to catch some zzzz’s. The family is still in town and we have many more adventures planned….

Have you ever ridden a SUP?

Do you think it’s as amazing as I do that I got both of my dogs to ride the SUP?
