Chuck wanted to go for a bike ride for his birthday. Yesterday, we biked North Whatcom Lake Hertz Trail which is an easy 3.1 trail(one way). According to my Husbands calculations, we biked about 7 miles. It is mainly flat and wide. It was the first time attempting a bike ride of this length and first time on the trail. As an added bonus, there were quite a few geocaches along the trail. There were a couple of little waterfalls as well.
It turned out to be a perfect afternoon for this type of adventure. We saw lots of dog walkers and bikes along the trail.
My husband was doing some training in the southern part of the state and was heading home yesterday afternoon. Luckily he stopped at his Mom's house for dinner in the Tacoma area and to sit out the rush hour traffic. Because he would of probably of been close to crossing this bridge. Yes, the bridge that collapsed last evening. Thankfully no one was seriously injured. However this will probably jam up traffic for months because this is the main highway from our part of the state to Seattle.
Thought I would share a few pictures of Charlie's Birthday.
I made a MineCraft banner for his birthday. It turned out OK. He was really surprised. For those not in the know, MineCraft is a computer game that the kids like to play. Don't ask me to explain it! The creature at each end is a creeper.
Here is a close-up of the letters I used graph paper for the letters.
I am linking up The Mom Creative Project Life Tuesday. I had trouble getting my Mojo to pull this weeks spread together being a single parent this week. This is coming too you on Wednesday.
We had a busy week 20. We spent Mother's Day Weekend at Nonna's house and celebrated our two May Birthdays and Mother's Day. The end of the week had my Husband traveling to a major match in St George, Utah. I am using two of my husband's pictures in the layout. More information about how we created the bulldogs can be found here.
The above picture just cracks me up. Of course, I am in the back seat but the dog is in the passenger seat. The journaling is below: Our dog is a DORK! Tigger has decided that he does want to get into the car. The other day we decided to take him for a ride without the dog crate. He decided to sit in the front seat - too funny.

Thought I would share Nonna's garden set up. Her garden is all containers because of her slopping lot and the main sun area taken up by a deck. Mother's day weekend we worked with her to get it all planted in the metal containers. I think it is so cute. Can't wait to take a picture of it filled in later in the growing season. I forgot to take a picture of the little area they are using to grow corn and squash.
