Birthday celebrations year 32
*lots of photos*

Birthday dinner with Andrea, Tara R., & Jessica- who made us burgers.
This is leftover burger for lunch because Jessica is awesome like that.

Birthday dinner at the Cleggs...

Birthday Family Adventure:
Meadow Lava Tubes & Hot Springs
Cove Fort
Fremont Indian State Park

Derek doesn't like this picture because of how he's standing..
but look at Ragnar and how happy she is!

The cinder cone the lava rocks were brought from.

Camped at Sam Stowe because it was the only camp area open at the time.
Bathrooms weren't even open and they still over charged. 
Never again.

Of course by the time we were up and going, the sun was high enough to make it hard to see the petroglyphs. But hey, when you've seen one you've seen them all...

 100 hands cave.  Gated off to protect the site.
 Sheep herder cave,  also gated off.  They do have a mirror for you to see the upside of the overhang.

Birthday hike with Andrea & Frieda..
Yes there was still snow at Angry Waterfalls

 Birthday Culture:
Alice in Wonderland exhibit at Urban Arts Gallery.
Matched with the Alice in Wonderland themed books I had been reading.

And finally:
Birthday shopping with Austin.
