C43 Birthday

C43 had his 43rd birthday today, so we took a lovely little hike in Greenbelt Park on the Azalea trail. It is a 1.2  mile loop, we took it at about 43 minutes per mile. Yeah, it took a long time. But we stopped and looked at every spider, every harvestman/daddylonglegs in town, and every dead tree. So it was OK. Q6 would see something neat and come running up to tell us to take a picture. Unfortunately, we had forgotten to put the disk back in the camera, so we only had internal memory to work with. I deleted a bunch of old photos and had a grand total of about 12 pictures we could take.

Q6 tried to climb this stripy tree, but only got about 6 inches off the ground.

And the girls posed beautifully by a fairy hole. I love this picture.

After our walk we just puttered around the house, the girls made and wrapped gifts for C43, I made dinner and dessert (rustic pizza and blueberry pie). The blueberry pie was really good, it was an recipe from Rose Levy Beranbaum's Pie and Pastry Bible that I found on ... basically 1/4 of the blueberries are cooked with sugar to make the syrup/goo, and the remainder are mixed in and remain uncooked. Wow. Tasted so fresh and great. Doesn't make me dislike regular blueberry pie any less, but this was very summery.

We didn't sing happy birthday, and didn't overly acknowledge that the day was special. But it was a lovely day nevertheless.
