Wienie Roast Celebration

An early rainstorm threatened our celebration of the lifting of the fire ban, but it stopped about 2 o’clock and the skies became sunny.

We had a good turn-out for our wienie roast with about 25-30 campers coming over.  Introductions were made and sure enough strangers found commonality and soon “community” was formed.  We had a whole bunch of family members from Frinch, Texas, and another family who graduated from a nearby town.  Someone else someone in another town and pretty quick everyone was long lost friends.  I love when that happens.


Several folks new my birthday was the next day and they brought me a cake and a cute card about remember when (…we use to drink out of the water hose….we went out to play in the morning and didn’t come home till dusk….our mode of transportation was our bikes, etc.).


Then on Thursday Jim surprised me with really nice earrings and he was able to capture the moment on camera.  He did a great job at picking out perfect earrings for me.


So Thursday night we met my BFF Lory and her husband , Wayne, for dinner at Dos Rios in Monte Vista.  Wayne’s birthday was also Thursday and Lory’s is next week, so we were actually celebrating three birthdays that night.  The food was good and we had a great visit but soon it was time to get back to the campground and check on our charges.

I had a very nice birthday and appreciated all the well wishes.  Tomorrow it’s back to reality and all the bookwork, but for one day I just knitted and read and got pampered….I enjoyed it all.

Remember, you are loved.

  1. Happy birthday and that you and your husband for making the cookout a big success.

  2. Happy Belated Birthday! It looks like it was an enjoyable one. In the pictures I see people wearing sweatshirts and light jackets so it must be pleasantly cool there. It's supposed to be 106* here in NE Nebr. on Sunday. I wouldn't mind at all if that forecast was wrong & it turns out much cooler.

  3. Happy Birthday! Love the pic of you w/ the earrings!!
