Little did I know, my birthday wasn’t over when I wrote that last blog post. My two friends had been waiting on me to finish up my blog post. About ten minutes before I finished the entire rec center cleared out and it was just us 3…I didn’t think much of it…One of my friends suggested heading to one of the dining halls to grab a snack before bed & I said I’d go along with her. The 3 of us lolly-gagged on over to the dining hall & went in the back entrance…I thought twice about the fact we were using the back (kitchen) entrance, but figured, “Eh. Whatever.” We walked into pitch black & I immediately heard voices.
ME: “Is that a dude’s voice!?”
FRIEND: “Nah, I think it was just the light turning on.”
ME: ”No. That is DEFINITELY a guy talking.”
The lights flashed on & all of my summer staffer friends were hanging from the rafters (literally), hiding behind tables, or jumping out to say, “Happy Birthdayyy!!!”
And then we danced.
The next day at lunch, I thought all the excitement was over. But I was wrong. After staff had eaten lunch three of my friends came out of the kitchen singing the Happy Birthday song holding 2 huge sheet cakes that read, “Happy Birthday Sarah!” :) Thanks Momma & Daddy-o. So we ate, drank, & were very merry.
This past week has been easy, restful, & wonderful. Here are some pictures:

// This is our barn hummingbird that I fondly named, “Theresa.” She has a friend named, “Bill.” //
// Pray for Colorado. Those aren’t low hanging clouds. That’s smoke.//
// Evening 2.5 mile run down the mountain with some friends. //
// This was one of my most favorite afternoons yet. //
