Birthday in Portland

Joy, fresh from seeing whales on the coast!

Hot Lips pizza. Mmm.

Camera happy

Hanging out in Bobby's condo (furniture is on the way!)

South Fork Snoqualmie River

I went for a nice little hike on Sunday with Darcy, her husband, and the dogs - Queets and Soma.

Check out the video Darcy made of the hike!

With a soundtrack, no less.

Unfortunately, it was too cold to swim (overcast, cool day + cold river), but I did give it a try.

Queets had a blast, as usual.

In other news, I got a haircut today! I'm really excited about it, I should have done this a year ago, but I was clinging to my long hair. I got it cut short (like the chin-length bob I had in/after college). Love it!

Home sweet home

I got home from DC late last night. It was a great trip all around -- good work-wise (lots of meetings, fun seeing everyone in the office, happy hours, and got lots of stuff done), I spent lots of quality time with Joy (who is looking fabulous at 5ish months pregnant!), and even got to kayak on the Potomac after work one day.

On Thurs morning I went for a run from Joy's house in Columbia Heights to my old house in Adams Morgan. It was fun to see the old neighborhood and reminisce about living there ten (ten!?) years ago.

Joy, Cheryl and I had a great dinner one night at a thai place on U street. Really fun to catch up. The conversations we were having about The Future (babies, etc, etc) reminded me of conversations we'd have the summer before college. Thinking about the great unknown and excited about everything to come.

It's great to be home - I missed John and Queets! We're having a very mellow, relaxing weekend. I love that the Olympics are on - can't wait for swimming and gymnastics!

Busy week!

We had a great time in Portland last weekend with Bob and Sara. It has been a busy week -- John and I celebrated our 4th (!) anniversary on the 30th, and I'm getting ready to be in DC all next week.

Here are pics from last weekend...John at his office, Bobby at "the Leaky Roof" restaurant, the windsurfing and kiteboarding scene in Hood River, and Bridal Veil Falls in the Columbia Gorge (the people at the falls aren't us, just random people)
