|Hiking along the stream|
When we were done hiking the dogs were wet and covered in dirt, so we wanted to towel dry them before putting loading in the car to make the hour-long drive home. There was a house on the land about a half mile from where we parked the car to hike, so we had the dogs run behind the car back to the ranch house. I think they really liked it--zig-zagging behind the car, running full speed. It was quite a sight to see. We didn't hear a peep from either dog for the rest of the day, as they spent hours napping after our little adventure.
There were also a couple donkeys at the ranch house that we fed carrots.

Although I really enjoyed hiking and eating large amounts of graham crackers, coconut, and chocolate, the best part of my birthday happened late on Friday evening. John received an email from the daughter of the lady who adopted our sweet pup, Logan. Last year we decided it would be best to find him a new home (See "C" is for Canine). We checked in with Logan's new mom a couple times after his adoption, but we had been meaning to call her again after Christmas. There's no way her daughter could have known it was my birthday on Friday, but her email update with photos of Logie Bear was the best birthday present I could have asked for!! She assured us that both her mom and Logan are happy, and based on the pictures I can tell they are spoiling him sweet. He looks perfectly content snuggled up with his new family. It warmed my heart to know that he is well cared for and loved.

My response to John's t.u. shirt. Burn it. Saw 'em off. Something.
I also got to see my friend, Laura, to celebrate her upcoming wedding. Her bachelorette party was in Austin on Saturday night, so I joined the group for dinner before they hit the town. Congrats, Laura!
