Knitting again

My knitting took a major slump and I didn’t finish anything for a long time, but the mojo returned and things are getting done!

This is called My Favorite Things infinity scarf. A choose your own adventure by scouring the internet for different patterns to add my own favorite things to the scarf. One scarf, but three photos to show all of the different sections…

15th Anniversary

The hubs and I celebrated our 15th anniversary and took the family to our favorite spot at the beach: the Surfsand Resort. It has the best pool!

We went out for a nice dinner and the kids got their own table, practicing their independent restaurant skills. Jason and I pretended we were there alone. haha! The kids did great.

Banks-Vernonia trail

Today I rode the last two sections of the Banks-Vernonia trail from Top Hill to Vernonia Lake. Now that I have finally ridden all sections of the trail (non-consecutively), I can say that the two sections into Vernonia are my fav!

It was a great, nearly flat ride and a gorgeous view at the end for lunch. Just me and the ducks…

I’d love to do the entire length in one go next, but no way I’m ready for the entire length AND BACK. Not with that 8 miles of incline from Manning to Top Hill.
