Hello, Julie v3.0

Guess what? I turned thirty yesterday! I spent three very busy days celebrating. As a result, this post will be a photo-barf.

Saturday: BBQ at my brother and sister-in-law's place.

Perfect day to be on a Washington State ferry, right?

I have a new gnome friend! Meet Jameson!

Sunday: Puyallup to visit the Mother Earth News fair (I saw an electric VW Karmann Ghia- my dad would have loved it!!). And had a delicious tea celebration in Seattle.

Monday: Jumped on a boat plane and flew to Victoria, B.C., waved at my birthplace and hometown as we flew by. I rode in the cockpit.

Visited the Butchart Gardens.

Champagne before lunch?? Why not, it's my birthday!

And we flew back home.

I have videos and real pictures but I am exhausted and can't be bothered to deal with uploading such things at the moment. Hope everyone had a fantastic time with the beautiful weather we had over the weekend!


  1. Happy unBirthday! Sounds like the perfect weekend! I too was at the Mother Earth Fair Sunday. Great huh? Sorry I missed Joel Salatin Saturday though. Ran into some local gardeners I know. Pretty fun! And a sea plane ride! What fun!

  2. Looks like you had a great time without Hawaii!

  3. Thank you, Sinfonian! It was pretty great. I tend to dread birthdays but with the way we crammed in so much, I didn't really have time to fret about it. Glad you had a chance to go to the fair as well!

    Indeed, M! Maui should still be around by the time we get done with the house and are ready for a vacation. Besides, 30 is epic enough to be worth celebrating twice. :)
