Birthday Fun!

For her Birthday, the Woman and Ian went to Sandy Bottom Trail Rides to ride horses. They had a great time on their 3-hour ride, and they were the only two people on the 10am ride, which made it even more wonderful. They spent 2 hours riding and one hour at the "old mine," prospecting for garnets! (No, they didn't find any ghosts at the old mine, otherwise the Scooby Doo gang may have made an appearance.) Their guide found them lots of garnets that they brought home and gave to me. I had hoped to "get rich quick" by selling them on Ebay, but Woman said they're pretty worthless and just meant to be kept as a memento. Here are some pics from the fun day.

Woman on her horse, whose name is Rowdy. Rowdy was a very good horse and didn't buck the Woman off at all.

A view of the surrounding mountains from the trails. The trails are in Marshall, NC, less than an hour from Asheville. Woman said it's very serene and quiet there. She wants to live there now.

Ian in the mines on the Sandy Bottom Trails property. People used to mine here for talc hundreds of years ago.

Woman in the mines on the Sandy Bottom Trails property. Yes, she was afraid of a snake jumping out at her.

Woman at the end of the day with her horse, Rowdy.

The People had lots of fun, and when they got back from the fun, they found that the Gammy had decorated the yard for the Woman's birthday! What a nice Gammy I have!

Here is a picture of Murphy and me yesterday. It was a nice day outside, so we went and hung out with Kari and Sarah for a little while. Murphy peed on my head again!

And here is the Cutie Pie Sarah playing in her kiddie pool. I drank the water!

    Grammy did a wonderful job of decorating! The scenery on the horse trail is so pretty. I wish I was up in Ashville right now!

    It had been killing me trying to figure out which movie star your husband reminded me of ever since you posted the medieval pictures. Today, seeing him again, it hit me! Peter Krause from the show Six Feet Under! Yep. He looks just like him!

    Cutie Pie Sara is SO CUTE. Tell your Woman she should be a model! She's so photogenic.

    And that would be so cool to have my yard decorated like that! Someone really loves your Woman norman!
