It is no secret July is my favorite month. July 3, is our wedding anniversary, July 4th one of my favorite holidays, and July 5 my birthday. Last year I mainly spent the time climbing Mt. Rainier in Washington and with family on the Sound shooting off lots of fireworks. A change of pace this year, we spent most of the time at home in Denver. For our anniversary, Linnea’s friend looked after William and we went out for a nice dinner at Bonefish Grill and second desert at Dairy Queen. The Fourth was pretty quiet with much of the evening spent down in the basement to shelter Maddy from all the noise. Not much from our end this year, just a few annoying blackcats.
On my birthday, Linnea served me breakfast in bed……at 5:30a! It was nice, but just too early. The rest of the day we rotated between painting the deck and watching William. 12 hours of hard labor and it was almost complete. Luckily Linnea grilled up some sweet tasting steak and to top it off made an immaculate ice-cream cake with my favorite Blue Bell ice-cream. Too bad William couldn’t enjoy some and he had already hit the sack for the night.
We finished up the deck the next day. We definately should have hired some high schoolers to do the job and we are both done painting for a while!
