Sutherland, birthday, Leaving and Travel

Sutherland- Our annual trip with the work crew to the lake was sooo nice and full of adventure. No power when we arrived, luckily Cindy had been there so the basement was all warm with the wood stove, candles dispersed throughout the whole house. We all snugged up, ate food, laughed and laughed. Thanks girls, you are so awesome. Wes got to come and be the only boy- he was fantastic and hasn't told a word about it!! :) ha-ha.

33 years- i got home from the lake to a table full of flowers and some sweet presents from Abs and Joe.

Leaving- Our good friends Tess and Dave left for New Zealand. We've been up at the house as much as we could before doing whatever we could to help or just be there. The last party in the barn and a fire true Kirner style, very big. We will miss all the kids running around the house, doing acrobatics on the chin up bar, using the big blue coccoon, and of course all the great food and company. We will miss you like crazy...... hopefully we'll see you in the airport in Aukland!!! sometime in the next 5 years.

Travel- After a semi-scary drive to seattle that involved a lot of rain and hydroplaning we made it to the hotel and the airport in the morning on our way to Orlando, Florida for a week of sun, swimming, family and fun.

Happy late birthday sweetie! I guess we are both a bit older and wiser now. What a year for both of us. Have a yummy trip and I'll talk to you when you get back. xx00
