It is a boat load of fun, and gives all us tomboys a chance to put on some fancy clothes and get out of the jeans and hiking boots for a change. I've made some good friends and professional contacts through this group of smart, fun, and motivated women. Plus, it gives me a chance to give back for the scholarships I received as a college student. Karma is a good thing. This year it looks like we raised somewhere around $2300.
Today is Easter and Drew somehow didn't have to work this weekend. I think that is our own little Easter miracle! Yesterday we went for a very nice but chilly mountain bike ride with Allison and then we colored eggs.
I love coloring eggs. I remember back when I was a kid in my huge family, I think we must have done 5 dozen eggs. That would be too much egg salad for just Drew and me to eat.
This morning, we had ambitious plans to join our good friends the Wedges and their friends at sunrise service on the top of Hidden Peak (+10,000 feet). We looked at the weather forecast last night and decided to celebrate spring by sleeping in on our new mattress set. Good choice. We did manage to go for a walk to Coffee Garden before meeting Andy and Rhonda for brunch and later joining them, Jim, and his friend on a 45 mile road bike ride around the valley. Great ride!So spring has finally arrived, as indicated by these quail in our backyard. Hooray, we made it through winter!
