Remember how I mentioned that I'll often celebrate my birthday for days on end? This year was one of those birthdays.
I generally take off from work for my birthday. I've spent the previous weekend camping, so on my Big Day, I like to do something personal. Last year I went to the gun range.
Afterwards I went to watch my niece Julia's soccer game, and met my friend Ryan for dinner. It was a good one.
This year I wandered Lake Park. For hours. It was perfect. Lake Park was beautiful and nearly abandoned. I only saw one other person while I was there, and I bet that man was doing the same thing I was: enjoying being outside in the best company the globe offers. You know, birds, trees, a cool breeze.
