Birthday Season Over

Our birthday celebration officially ended last night. We had an awesome dinner at Michael’s at the Citadel. It’s just five minutes from our house; we have had reservations a few times in the past and canceled at the last minute. Last night, though, we followed through and it was outstanding. Not your usual Arizona dining experience (chains) and very understated yet adventurous.

One of our topics for the evening was our idea to rent a RV next year and do some sort of road trip that involves a few of our favorite things—farmers markets and baseball. My wife never knew that such a plan was always something I wanted to do, but I haven’t thought about it for something like 30 years. The RV would allow us to sample our farmers market discoveries and just travel spontaneously. I love the blogging potential.

Who knows, we might even do it. If so, we’ll rent one for a long weekend to see if it works for us. About 17 years ago, when we lived in Seattle, we toyed with the idea of buying a small boat and taking weekend trips on the boast. We never did it, but we had a great time talking about the possibilities. It’s why I love that woman—she is as crazy and wide-eyed as me. Who else would travel through South America for three months on trains and buses?
